Impact Wrestling viewership up slightly, still below 200,000

Impact Wrestling didn't get a significant ratings bump coming off Bound for Glory 2018.

Thursday's episode averaged 189,000 viewers on Pop TV, up slightly from last week's 183,000. The rating in the 18-49 demo was unchanged at a 0.04.

This was the third-lowest audience Impact has drawn in 2018 and the third straight week they've been below 200,000 viewers.

Impact will begin airing in a new time slot next week. Next Thursday'sĀ episode, which will feature new Impact World Champion Johnny Impact defending his titleĀ against Fenix, will air at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

With the Denver Broncos blowing out the Arizona Cardinals, Thursday Night Football ratings were down significantly this week. Impact also went against a Boston Red Sox vs. Houston Astros baseball playoff game that drew 6.523 million viewers and a Philadelphia 76ers vs. Chicago Bulls basketball game that averaged 1.555 million.

This time last year, the October 19, 2017 edition of Impact averaged 267,000 viewers.
