Will Bart Scott increase ratings?

I don't know anything about the guy, but his appearance on TNA has garnered quite a bit of media coverage, I guess the media coverage doesn't mean much for ratings if he isn't that big and no one even reads the articles

Bart Scott is one of the best Linebackers in the NFL. This should increase ratings, absolutely.

No. He plays for the Jets, a team widely known as attention whores. Only person on that team who could draw is their coach and head drama queen, Rex Ryan. I'd love to see Scott Steiner cut a promo on Ryan. Ryan is fat, and he has a foot fetish. More than enough material for Scotty to work with.

With Bart Scott, If there's any ratings increase, it'll be the usual 0.1 TNA gets with their big moves. But I'll give TNA credit for trying to get their name out there. Just hope they have a good show to go with thi.

I wish TNA and WWE would realize that the real ratings increases come by producing quality entertainment not hiring a bunch of celebs and pro athletes. Oh well, it's still good I guess that they might get some publicity even though it's not gonna do much for them.

Even I was nice enough not to bring any of that up, and I'm a Patriots fan lol.

He's gotten them a nice amount of attention already so I expect a nice increase in ratings not too big though. They should've tried to get Mark "The Sanchize" Sanchez to appear, seeing him interact with Rosita (who looks like she's about 15) would be gold. The will he or won't he would = RATINGS.

kurt angle couldn't raise the ratings enough
scott steiner couldn't raise the ratings enough
jeff hardy couldn't raise the ratings enough
sting couldn't raise the ratings enough
hulk hogan couldn't raise the ratings enough
eric bischoff couldn't raise the ratings enough
ric flair couldn't raise the ratings enough

and will bart scott is certainly not raising the ratings

wanna raise the ratings? fix the booking holes, there is enough awareness of tna, but people just wont watch because they don't want to put up with the bad stuff in the show (even though it has some nice stuff too i admit)

Yeah, he'll raise them about as much as JWOW did or Angelina will.

Bringing these random people to TNA isn't going to help the ratings. You would think that Russo learned his lesson with David Arquette.

Sure fixing some of TNAs problems could get TNAs usual fanbase to watch more often, but most wrestling fans are oblivious to the plot holes and stupid things that happen in TNA, I for one can vow for that, it has to be really obvious before I notice TNA do something stupid . . . the 3.3.2011 thing would be one

I think I speak for the majority of international TNA viewers when I say..."who?"
TNA doesn't give a shit about the international fans. It's an American company. You think NOAH cares about Americans? Or NJPW? Nope.

This is one of TNA's most hyped episodes of impact ever. I mean, it's pretty fucking STACKED. A lot of shit I could care less about, but still....

We've got Hulk Hogan's "return" and the "verdict", 3/3/11 mysterious (lol) promo, and Jarrett wedding with Kurt Angle giving Karen away among many other things. Oh yeah, and Angelina from Jersey Shore and Bart Scott's appearances which drew some media attention.

So yeah, this episode should pop a rating, but not solely because of Bart Scott.
