They averaged around 300k in the 8pm time slot. 400k was around the time the whole broken Matt Hardy thing was taking off. Trust me they will never get these numbers again unless they improve production to give the show a big time feel ala AEW. Bigger arenas, good lighting etc. Even NXT are barely maintaining 700k viewers on a huge channel, I doubt Impact will come close to these numbers with an indy looking show.They were doing 150k on 10pm
Impact peaked at almost 400k on POP.
And why should I trust YOU?They averaged around 300k in the 8pm time slot. 400k was around the time the whole broken Matt Hardy thing was taking off. Trust me they will never get these numbers again unless they improve production to give the show a big time feel ala AEW. Bigger arenas, good lighting etc. Even NXT are barely maintaining 700k viewers on a huge channel, I doubt Impact will come close to these numbers with an indy looking show.
MLW deserves better....AXS isn't metered by Nielsen but the last time NJPW's ratings were announced (I believe in a press release the last time the show was renewed) they were around 225,000 viewers per episode on average.
MLW Fusion gets under 10,000 on BeIn Sports plus their Fite and Youtube numbers.
ROH gets a lot of viewers (350,000 households not counting online viewers per episode was the last number Meltzer reported a few years back) but because of their timeslot and channels in a lot of markets, many of the viewers are very old like WWE's.
Back when Lucha Underground was on they were usually lucky to break 100,000.
So given all this and AEW's current numbers I'd say 150,000 per week on the low end, 400,000 per week best case scenario.
It's not their fault, it's just that BeIn Sports isn't on a lot of big cable providers. I know none of the cable or satellite companies in Denver offer it. Their numbers were really no worse than Impact on Pursuit.MLW deserves better....
Best story lines and wrestling right now on TV in my opinion. Just need to keep consistency on this new channel. In the past, every time they got in a groove they had to move stations or started new regimes turning this upside down. It's time for some long term, consistent booking that makes sense. If they can do that for a year or two the fanbase will build. They have a great foundation to work with and have lots of great talent that they are getting full use out of. I love the way how everybody on the roster has a role and is getting consistent TV time to build their character. Don is great.
Exciting.In my opinion Anthem has been trying to get Impact on its path since they took over and Finally starting next tuesday will be in my view the true start to the Anthem regime. A lot of changes took place and it was always uncertain of things and they keep wanting to push.They said themselves they didnt push as much as they wanted until they landed a proper deal.
So here we go and it begins on a solid ground with a good team. Also right now is a big roster turn over period too
I wouldn't worry too much about MLW. They are very much an old school promotion in the way they handle events. They have been selling a shit ton of tickets, and are going to get 2,000+ fans to their PPV on Saturday (me being one of them), despite the viewership, they still draw more fans to the shows than Impact.MLW deserves better....
