Default Big 2012 ratings breakdown (Not good)

Quote:
Members of TNA fan site TNAInsider.com compiled data comparing Impact Wrestling's ratings over the years. Below are some visual charts and facts comparing this past years ratings and facts regarding the year.

Below is a chart comparing ratings for the show for 2011 and 2012:



Below is chart comparing the year to year average rating for Impact Wrestling from 2006 through 2012:



Here are some facts about this year's ratings:

- Impact has not had this many episodes that drew less than a 1.1 since 2007.

- Impact has not had this many episodes that drew less than a 1.0 since 2006.

- Impact has not had a year-to-year rating average this low since 2006.

- Impact Wrestling lost an average of 13% of it's Nielson ratings number in 2012.

- Impact Wrestling lost an average of 19% of it's entire viewer demographic in 2012.

- The rating for the show dropped on the very first episode that was not written by Vince Russo. The first episode written solely by the new creative team after Russo's departure fell from a 1.19 to a 1.0 rating.

- Vince Russo's highest Impact rating of the year was a 1.35. The new creative team's highest impact rating in 2012 was a 1.15 rating. Impact lost almost 17.8% of its viewers in just 7 episodes after Russo left the company.

- Impact in 2012 had only 9 episodes out of the year that drew a 1.1 or greater rating. 6 out of the 9 episodes were written by Vince Russo.

- April 12 - May 3 episodes of Impact, TNA had their first consecutive episodes of Impact Wrestling that scored less than a 1.0 rating since the Monday Night Wars of 2010. This string of episodes did not compete against the NFL.

Debunking the NFL Myth:
Impact scored a higher rating during the first episode against NFL Thursday night football than the previous week without NFL competition. September 6 episode drew a 0.94 rating. The September 13th episode against the NFL drew a 0.97 rating. The second week of NFL competition saw Impact draw a 1.01 rating, which was higher than the first week of the two shows competing in the same time slot.

The last few episodes of Impact Wrestling in 2012 did not compete against NFL's Thursday Night Football, and still failed to score anything higher than a 0.99 rating.

The Debate On The 8pm Timeslot Continues:
The debate on how the 8pm timeslot has affected the show since May 31st continues. There is evidence supporting both sides of the debate. Most Impact shows before May 31 scored a 1.0 rating and above, which is still below average for the show. On the other hand, only 4 out of 22 episodes of Impact Wrestling before the time change scored less than a 1.0 rating.

The Silver Lining Of Impact Moving To 8pm:
While some may say that the nail in the coffin was the move to 8pm last May, Spike TV did increase an average of 20-28% during the 8pm timeslot. During the first few weeks of the year, UFC Unleashed was still being aired sporadically during the timeslot, followed by a steady rotation of re-run Spike branded reality shows. The move to 8pm may not have been a major relief that some Impact fans were hoping for, but it clearly has helped Spike TV's bottom line when it comes to the prime time slot.

Seems to be a general wrestling thing, if RAW is anything to go by, which is in crisis at the minute with 2.2's.

They just need to move to smaller venues.Stop trying to big bigger then they are. Bring in a simple but cool stage set.They dont need to be spending 500 thousand dollars for a fucking episode on the road. Thats bullshit. WWE needs to stop acting like its bigger then it is.Its not that big anymore either.

We are still in a decline in wrestling.Boom period i think is coming.

Thats the only reason why they dont travel.Why is it they can travel with cameras and a simple stage set for house shows. They can make it happen.Just make it a bit better then a house show and its not going to be any different.Pisses me off that they go on all these house road shows yet we cant for tv.

I don't understand how Bischoff was able to move Nitro around and shoot it on beaches and in shopping malls but TNA has to insist on moving thousands of miles and hiring out arenas.

You really dont know why ? I guess u dont know whats happening behind the scenes. WCW was backed with a guy wasting millions and millions of money not making profit. You dont need to spend money to gain momentum.

plus wcw had a long history which TNA is still new

SAVE US RUSSO





They were on the right path until they ruined James Storm and started the Devon & Jobberz storyline.

This should create a sterling debate from many people on this board with business degrees, and knowledge.

I'd rather have 100,000 fewer people watching than Russo's crap. Don't you remember how awful lots of those Russo shows were?

Still TNA's top rated program and Impact gets 30 percent better ratings than what they were airing in the time change's slot.

1.1 to 1.0 is really not that big of a deal.

anyone else find it odd the two graphs basically follow the exact same pattern, just with 2012 shifted downwards?
