Report: TNA Impact moving back to Thursdays
The Monday Night War Part II is over.
TNA has made the call to move Impact from Mondays back to Thursdays, according to a report by prowrestling.net.
There will now be a three-hour block of TNA programming on Thursdays, with the new TNA Reaction show airing at 8 p.m., followed by Impact at 9 p.m.
Since Impact made the move to Mondays on March 8, the ratings for the show have plummeted, bottoming out with a 0.5 rating last week.
I don’t fault TNA for making an attempt to go head-to-head with Raw. Since more people watch wrestling on Mondays than any other night, the thinking was that perhaps TNA could entice fans to flip back and forth between Raw and Impact, thus growing its audience. The ratings showed that the experiment wasn’t working, so cutting its losses and putting Impact back in its old time slot is the smart thing to do.
