- Here is the ratings breakdown for last week's edition of TNA Impact Wrestling. The show scored a 1.0 rating, off of hours of 0.92 and 1.08. Both of those hours are the lowest of the last five weeks…
First Hour Break Down
Q1: Impact opened with a 0.92 rating for Hulk Hogan's speech about trying to find a #1 contender to the TNA World Title by the end of the show. Sting then joined Hogan in the ring to set the stage for Team TNA vs. Team Aces & Eights at Lockdown. This was followed by one commercial.
Q2: Impact was essentially the same at a 0.91 rating for Daniels vs. Magnus in the first unhyped "impress Hulk Hogan" match, plus one commercial.
Q3: Impact stayed at a 0.91 rating for the seriously underhyped Samoa Joe vs. Kurt Angle "impress Hulk Hogan" match, plus one commercial.
Q4: Impact inched up to a 0.94 rating - the first hour peak rating - for the first-half of a mixed tag match featuring the Knockouts. There were also two full commercial breaks.
Second Hour Break Down
Q5: Impact jumped to a show-high 1.19 rating for the second-half of the mixed tag match, post-match involvement from Brooke Hogan, and video packages. The segment benefited from only having half of a commercial break.
Q6: Impact dipped to a 1.08 rating for James Storm vs. RVD in another match trying to impress Hulk Hogan, plus one-and-a-half commercial breaks.
Q7: Impact dipped to a second-hour-low 1.00 rating for the Hogans talking backstage, ring introductions for the Austin Aries vs. Bobby Roode main event, one commercial, and the first half of the main event.
Q8: Impact increased slightly to a 1.05 rating for the finish of Aries-Roode, one commercial, and Hogan teasing a #1 contender decision that was interrupted by Aces & Eights.
