Recent WWE and TNA UK TV Ratings

From Ian Hamilton:

We’ve two weeks’ worth of TV ratings here… with some pretty erratic numbers too!


Raw from April 4
– drew 119,000 in the live airing (-58,000 on the prior week/-33% for the post-Mania show)

SmackDown from April 8
– drew 160,000 in its first airing (+62,000 from the pre-Mania show/+63%)

TNA from March 31
– drew 174,000 in its airing on Tuesday night April 5th (an increase of at least 39% on the prior week, which didn’t make the top 10 for Challenge TV)


Raw from April 11
– drew 152,000 viewers in the live airing (+33,000/+28%)
– drew 58,000 in the Thursday evening replay
– drew 63,000 in the Friday replay

SmackDown from April 15:
– drew 143,000 in the first airing (-17,000/11%)
– drew 32,000 in a Saturday night replay

TNA from April 7
– drew 192,000 in its airing on April 12th (+18,000/circa 10% – it was the highest rated Impact in the UK to date, for those keeping track of that latest stat!)

    TNA is out doing WWE because of their genius channel placement which as JB said reaches more homes than the WWE. If TNA does a PPV, or an Impact here they will make a lot of money and they could easily sell out 10k plus.

    My comment on the other link may be wrong TNA fans are growing. Where are these people every1 i know that liked wrestling has moved away or stopped watching and if they make a PPV in UK im going i live north east Scotland but (in Sting voice) I LOVE TNA :) BTW i thought Lockdown was really good oh and a note to Mr Gerweck the UK version featured the Pre match show as the UK version is 4 hours long with commercials because as watching i was like i don’t remember reading about this then when they kept saying pre show and lockdown will start at the top of the hour i thought this is a good idea since it lasts 4 hours also the whole pre show thing lasted about 40 minutes :)
