TNA ratings
 
What's it going to take for TNA ratings to improve? I haven't been watching TNA from the beginning, only started watching about 3-4 years ago but I love their product. The show is entertaining and they have great talent, so why don't the ratings reflect that? I live in San Antonio and I'd say most people I know have no idea TNA exists. I'd like to see TNA succeed but no matter how hard they try, they keep hitting those same 1.0 - 1.2 ratings. How do we (TNA) get some WWE fans to tune in and make the switch? I know this is a topic in another thread, but I'm nervous our Alamodome will be half empty for Lockdown. :(

You have to speculate to accumulate.

Its going to take years and one step at a time.Being full time on the road will be expensive.It would help them feel main stream. Wrestling is at a low right now.Its growing and This company still is not that known to people outside the wrestling world.They will have to do a lot of marketing.

Many many many factors and they are slowing working away

And to be fair.I dont know why anyone thinks they have bad ratings.They are doing just fine in ratings.Its not like its acutely bad.Any show over 1 is good.

I think it's just a sign of the times. WWE has been hovering around 2-3 ratings with SD! and RAW. WCW and WWF both used to split nearly 10 nielsen points (WWF had 6s while WCW had 2s SIMULCAST (Both shows on at same time)). RAW is now unopposed, yet instead of having a rating of 6-10, it's down to 3-4.

Of course they altered the nielsen a few years back, so it's actually higher than the actual number (TNA's 1.1 ratings are usually 1.6 million viewers).

But I don't think TNA can get past its 1.2 ratings anymore than WWE can get past it's 3.2 ratings.

A second show on a another well known network should help bring in ratings. Other then that advertising and marketing on channels that have wwe programing is a must.

They should really add a 1 hour show on like Tuesday or something.

Stay true to their target audience by maintaining consistency which is TNA is lacking right now. It ain't broad compared to WWE's colossal Male and Female 6-45 year old audience, but the Male 18-35 still holds a majority in the American population.

You basically answered your own question. TNA's ratings won't improve until more people know and care about TNA.

I think it's an uphill climb because pro wrestling isn't as big as it used to be. That means the pool of interested fans is smaller. All TNA can do is continue to produce solid shows on a consistent basis. They'll have to build their audience over time. It's not going to happen overnight.

Raw has been hovering right around 2.2 to 2.5 for quite awhile. That tells me that TNA has about half of their audience, which isn't that bad since TNA doesn't have that WWE logo to flash in the corner of the screen.

Wrestling isn't in a "boom period". Its not cool to be a wrestling fan like it was in the late 90's when the NWO and Attitude Era was running wild. Not sure what you meant by WWF had 6s while WCW had 2s. WCW beat WWF in ratings 88 straight weeks when wrestling was at its best. If I'm misunderstanding your wording, please correct me.

Just keep putting out a good product. That is all TNA can do. They have the best wrestling show on TV for males 18-45 demographic. They need to get on the road regularly, keep putting out a good product, and stay consistent in what demographic they are targeting. There will be another "boom period" sometime. Its just not right now.

Think of it this way... TNA has been hovering right around 1.1-1.3 for a long time. It never drops, it never raises. WWE has been dropping in ratings consistently for a couple years now. That says something. What that tells me, is that TNA has loyal fans of wrestling. WWE has kids and moms that will drop you at anytime.
