Impact Wrestling viewership down five percent this week

Thursday's episode of Impact saw a five percent drop in viewership from last week.

Impact averaged 116,000 viewers on Pop TV last night, down from last Thursday's 122,000. The rating in the 18-49 demo ticked up to a 0.04.

The episode was headlined by Impact World Champion Johnny Impact & Taya Valkyrie defeating Moose & Knockouts Champion Tessa Blanchard. In Ultimate X qualifying matches, Jake Crist defeated Willie Mack and Ethan Page defeated Matt Sydal. Dark Allie also made her in-ring debut as part of the storyline where Allie is being controlled by Su Yung.

Impact continues to settle into its viewership range since switching time slots. The show has averaged 98,000, 105,000, 129,000, 101,000, 124,000, 122,000, and 116,000 viewers in the seven weeks since switching to the 10 p.m. Eastern start time. The previous low for the year in the old time slot was 168,000 viewers.

Thursday Night Football ratings were down substantially coming off last week's Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints game that averaged over 24 million viewers.
