TNA's ratings have ranged from 1.5 to 1.0 in the last few years. They have trouble keeping ones that they have, let alone gaining new ones. Casual fans simply can't be into TNA. A casual fan likes the bright lights and the big arenas. Its like music. More people were into the Spice Girls and Miley Cyrus than The Clash. Even thought he latter put out more influential music. Casual fans are more about style than substance. Its why nobody watched ECW but when WWF started doing ECW style storylines with a big time budget the business exploded.
Good wrestling just isnt enough. If it was New Japan would be the biggest promotion in the world.
