TNA Ratings, Viewers And Attendance Down From 2011

Quote:
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.

So how long before TNA is forced to gamble?

Re: TNA Ratings, Viewers And Attendance Down From 2011

I think some of it has to be down to the writing of the shows lately, People aren't going to bother tuning in, just to see the same thing happen each week, and yes I'm talking about Aces & Eights, people are already tired of them teasing unmasking people, or unmasking people and having them be disappointments ...devon. Its sad because TNA have been more consistent and less russo hap hazard (i.e. People such as Mr.Anderson turning face/heel every 2 weeks) the past year, but I do think marketing and lack of storyline advancement hurts them.. Just my personal opinion..

I'm a Lady BTW!

Re: TNA Ratings, Viewers And Attendance Down From 2011

TNA simply has very little to no business strategy at all. People can crap all over WWE for whatever reason they want but WWE markets themselves very well, TNA does not. I think they live in this world where the wrestling audience is still the same size that it was during the Monday Night War era and that simply by signing the Hulk Hogan's and Jeff Hardy's of the world they can attract viewers. But clearly the wrestling audience is not that anymore. It has become, in my opinion, two groups, 1) The younger viewer and 2) the hardcore, internet viewer. Again, WWE knows this that's why they are so kid friendly now-a-days. The only avenue left for TNA is the hardcore viewer. They need to really market themselves as the wrestling alternative and if they can somehow do that then I think business will get much better.

Re: TNA Ratings, Viewers And Attendance Down From 2011

Im telling you guys its all because of the roster overall being weak and thin

and another problem with TNA is

Is all these free rides and free passes they give certain stars (ie Jeff Hardy, Gail Kim, etc...)

and assuring certain stars of permanent main event status without earning it in most cases

TNA needs to eliminate the Free Rides and Free Passes and make everyone earn it!

Can't wait for certain Marks to spin this.

The same Marks that ruined this section.

They need to go all over the world anyway, it will be to their benefit, more will know about TNA, and better chances to land stars and all.

Get Exposure to the World TNA, I know you can do it!
