Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer has posted the following detailed ratings breakdown for both TNA and WWE programming:

TNA Impact on 10/2 drew a final 1.0 cable rating (rounded up from a 0.99) with a 1.3 million viewers. This was considered a disappointment with this being Mick Foley’s first live apperance on Impact, although his segment drew a strong 1.19 rating. While it is possible the Vice Presidential debate could have played a role in a drop, most would think it would favor wrestling with all the major networks airing one thing. The show did a 0.70 in males 18-34, 0.82 in males 35-49 and 0.42 in women 18-49.

The WrestleMania special on 10/2 drew a final 1.2 broadcast rating. “The Secrets of Magic Revealed” that followed the show, which featured WWE Divas, beat out the show doing a 1.4 rating.

ECW on Sci Fi on 9/30 drew a final 1.2 cable rating with 1.51 million viewers. This was the first week of the show in its new timeslot and was considered an impressive number with viewers only being down 11% from the previous week.

WWE Monday Night Raw on 9/29 drew a final 3.1 cable rating (or a 3.07) with 4.54 million viewers. The show did a 2.34 in males 18-34 and the average viewer was 37 years old. 66% of the audience was male.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown on 9/26, which was the last show on The CW Network, drew a final 2.4 broadcast rating with 4.41 million viewers. Numbers were expected to be up since all of teh four English language competing networks were all airing the first Presidential debate.
