At the moment the ratings are 'good enough' for SpikeTV, but if they continue to drop to the level where other SpikeTV programs score better ratings, then there is no reason for Spike to continue to invest in TNA. But as long as TNA scores higher ratings than the other Spike shows everything will be fine.
But ratings definately matter, they determine how willing Spike is to put money in TNA.
