Neither guy is that good anymore. Sabu is obviously paying for 30 years of wrecking his body and RVD was fat and slow on that 5 Star Wrestling British show where he had an awful match with John Morrison. This is the kind of match that will only play to the live crowd.

They are down to 6k on Twitch now.

It's amazing how far they've fallen. Impact's average rating for 2011 was 1.6m. They were still doing shows in the 1.4m range in 2014 before Spike moved them to Wednesdays.


Dave said last night that on the Pursuit Channel they are doing 12,250 viewers. That is not a typo: twelve thousand two hundred fifty viewers.

12,250 viewers?, How many homes in the US is Pursuit available in and what do the other shows on the network average?. It's a surprise how they are staying afloat, ad sales must be non existent. What a come down from when they were doing over a million viewers + on Spike. Thing is the product is actually good since Don came in but I guess most non fans who are channel surfing won't keep on the channel if Hogan, Sting etc arent on there.

Pursuit is available in 45 million homes. I can't get it even though I subscribe to every channel.

I have no idea what other shows do. It is a channel that mainly shows hunting shows. And it's on the back end of cable so people probably won't find it channel surfing. It's also on in a terrible timeslot, Friday 10pm to midnight. A Friday show on that late hasn't been successful on cable since Beavis & Butthead 25 years ago. Shows on at that time like The Daily Show don't even bother airing a new episode Fridays because they know no one will watch.

OK thanks. Since Anthem owns them why not put Impact on the Fight Network?.

Fight Network isn't in the US for some reason.
