TNA and Spike TV issued a press release today announcing that Impact Wrestling will begin airing 1 hour earlier each week, starting May 31st. They cited “more available viewers” and “less sports competition” in the earlier timeslot.


Spike TV’s highly-rated two-hour weekly series, TNA’s “IMPACT Wrestling” is moving to a new timeslot. On Thursday, May 31 “IMPACT Wrestling will air at 8:00pm ET/PT, moving from its previous timeslot of 9:00pm ET/PT.

The shift to 8:00pm is predicated on the fact that there are more available viewers in the 8:00-10:00pm timeslot with less sports competition in the 8pm hour.

TNA’s flagship series, “IMPACT Wrestling,” airs weekly on Spike TV and is one of the network’s top-rated series. The show is must-see-tv with young men and currently ranks among the top series on cable on Thursdays with Men 18-34.

The TNA roster features many of the top names in wrestling including Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, Sting, James Storm, Rob Van Dam, and the lovely and lethal Knockouts.

      More potential viewers, less competition .. Makes sense

      • Wrestlehead

        True, but if the show still isn’t that interesting then people will find something else to watch.

      The show would gather higher ratings if they made the necessary changes to improve on the product. Hogan, Flair, the Bischoffs and such shouldn’t be the prime focus of Impact every week. With the roster they have right now, Impact COULD be a tremendous show, but there’s just too many mistakes being made and it’s been like that for far too long.
