With all the speculation of TNA being up for sale, people are still tuning into Impact Wrestling. The rating for Thursday’s edition of Impact drew a 0.9 rating with an average of 1.10 million viewers. That is slightly down from last week’s show, which drew a 1.0 rating with an average of 1.26 million viewers. The highlights of the show were Bobby Roode facing Kurt Angle and TNA Owner Dixie Carter stating that AJ Styles is no longer the world heavyweight champion.
TNA had competition though as the NFL had 6.48 million viewers for a game involving the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins. It was the third night of the NBA season and The NBA on TNT had 2.64 million viewers for the early game featuring the New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls.
