Impact Wrestling ratings down for Bound for Glory go-home show

The go-home show for Bound for Glory drew Impact Wrestling's second-lowest audience of the year.

Thursday night's episode averaged 183,000 total viewers on Pop TV and a 0.04 rating in the 18-49 demo, down from last week's 190,000 viewers and 0.05 rating. The only Impact in 2018 to draw fewer viewers was the August 9 episode, which averaged 168,000.

This is the fourth straight week that Impact viewership has been down.

This week's show featured a summit between LAX and the OGz ahead of their Concrete Jungle Death Match at Bound for Glory, Austin Aries, Moose & Killer Kross vs. Johnny Impact, Eddie Edwards & Fallah Bahh, and more build to Sunday's pay-per-view.

As was noted earlier today, Impact will be moving time slots starting later this month. Starting with the October 25 episode, Impact will move back two hours on Thursday nights and will begin at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

The Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants Thursday Night Football game that aired on Fox and the NFL Network averaged over 17 million viewers, up from last week's 16 million.

In the year-over-year ratings, Impact was down by nearly 100,000 viewers. The episode that aired on October 12, 2017 drew an audience of 279,000.
