TNA Numbers Down from 2011, Matches for Tonight’s Impact

Posted by Matt Boone December 27, 2012 9 Comments

- Matches taped for tonight’s episode of TNA Impact Wrestling are Samoa Joe vs. a member of Aces & 8s, Christian York vs. Rob Van Dam, Kazarian & Daniels vs. Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez, Gail Kim vs. Miss Tessmacher and Bobby Roode vs. Austin Aries in the main event.

– Based on statistics, one could make the argument that TNA is not progressing in certain areas. As far as ratings go, in November of 2011, Impact was drawing an average 1.17 rating with 1.61 million viewers. In November of 2012, they are averaging a 0.96 rating with 1.27 million viewers. This is a 17.9% drop in ratings and a 21.1% drop in audience. The Impact decline by percentage year-over-year is significantly more than WWE’s RAW or SmackDown.

As far as live event attendance goes, in November of 2011, the average attendance for events was 975. In November of 2012, average attendance is down 40.4% to 581.

      Funny thing to me is: TNA has had a better product on television than the WWF/E. It’s too bad that it hasn’t caught on yet with the fans because I think it has a ton of potential with better marketing. Maybe it’s time to start a “war” with the WWF/E?

      I’m actually surprised by these figures, in my opinion Impact as a whole has became increasingly more injoyable and entertaining to watch over the past year. I think they’ve taken great strides towards putting more focus on the younger guys in the company. I’m not saying that they’re perfect, there are still quite a few areas of weakness, all I’m saying is I think their product has gotten much better. But maybe that’s just my opinion, who knows.
