    The "limited commercial interruption" edition of Wrestling on Thursday, June 30 scored a 1.27 rating off a first hour 1.25 rating and a second hour 1.30 rating.

    Impact's peak rating came in the eighth quarter-hour with a 1.36 rating. The show opened with a 1.23 rating in the first quarter-hour. It continued a trend from nine out of the last ten episodes - the Q1 rating falling below the overall show average.

    Benefiting from "limited commercial interruptions," each quarter-hour was above its corresponding 2011 average. The most notable gain was in Q8 - the 1.36 rating was eleven percent above the 2011 average of a 1.22 Q8 rating.

    There are no iconic wrestlers. Seriously Cena is their go to guy...


    Everyones gimmick is basically the same. Not a lot of charisma swirling around these days.


    Plus there is no shock value anymore because the show is for little kids.


    Wrestling sucks. Their storylines suck and their talent is awful.

    TNA is radically different every week, but its in a bad way. They drop storylines for no good reason and start no-sense ones for no reason either. Remember Samoa Joe got kidnapped and then 3 weeks later he was back with no mention of it?


    Just look at the WWE title and TNA title pictures:

    This year WWE's legit contenders for the title have been:
    John Cena & The Miz.

    This year TNA's legit contenders for the title have been:
    Jeff Hardy, Sting, Mr.Anderson, RVD.

    In case some were not aware btw.. 7/4 is also known as July 4th.

    Independance Day.

    Single most likely day of the year to not find someone camped on their fat arse in front of a TV.

    lol.

    I watch Raw every week. However Monday night I was shooting off fireworks with my family and missed the entire show. I'm betting there were many who did the same thing.

    They could have had a topless diva's match and I would have stayed outside. :eek: Trust me that is saying something.

    That is hilarious.

    Raw can have a pre-taped show, that everyone already read the spoilers on a week before, on a holiday that is known as being family oriented.

    And still do over double the rating of TNA.

    :laugh2:

    Honestly, I still can't figure out why people watch this in the first place. It's just a bunch of steroided up muscle heads following a script that has them acting like idiots.

    What exactly makes you want to watch this? I suppose to each his own. My wife watches those stupid celebrity reality shows and I don't get that either.

    They are not the same. Not even close. That said, there are action movies that aren't worth watching either.

    I dunno..to me this is a really simple issue. If you don't like pro wrestling do not watch! And yet posters come on here..they hate it and yet they know the wrestlers names..know about matches. Makes no sense. Don't watch it. Why waste your time?and then waste more time coming to a wrestling thread telling everyone how much you hate it...

    Why? because you do not like it?

    That would be just like someone going in the "game of thrones" thread and asking why people like watching this crap about a bunch of meat heads fighting with play swords and a midget with a hot girl.

    Actually that sounds a lot like wrestling. :laugh2:

    Do these numbers also include DVR-recordings? Can Nielsen track it that way?

    The reason I ask is I imagine many did the fireworks thing and still had the DVR set to record.

    I tried watching Raw and couldn't make it past 15 minutes.

    It's horrible...I'm just wondering how Vince keeps selling the houses out week after week.

    Wow. Surprise surprise. The shows, especially RAW, did lower ratings on 4th of July and 4th of July weekend.

    I'm in shock that this happened. No, really, I am. Shocked. Can't you tell?

    lol
