The UK TV Ratings are in for the week ending 30 May 2010. According to the Broadcasters Audience Research Board – TNA iMPACT! on Bravo drew 98,000 viewers for the “Enigma and the A-H***“ episode which was headlined by an AJ Stlyes vs Mr. Anderson main event. This was up by 18,000 viewers on last weeks show, which strangely was the exact amount of viewers last weeks show lost from the week prior.

The replay of the previous weeks episode of iMPACT! on Bravo 2 was once again the channels top rated program for the week with 54000 viewers.

Meanwhile, TNA Xplosion on the Extreme Sports Channel was once again outside the channels top 10 programmes with under 5,000 viewers. Must give kudos to Extreme Sports as i’ve noticed they are starting to get behind the TNA product and promote it on their channel, something they weren’t doing initially. I’ve noticed a large number of adverts for TNA Xplosion this past week, hopefully this will draw some of the new fans in who aren’t aware the show is being broadcast on Extreme.

Unfortunately iMPACT! was beaten by WWE programming for the second week in a row with WWE’s flagship show RAW garnering 103,000 viewers, up approximately 6,000 viewers. However it was Smackdown that was the overall UK wrestling ratings winner this week drawing a superb 136,000 viewers on Sky Sports 3.

Weekly Ratings Summary:

WWE Late Night Smackdown (SS3,FRI,2200) – 136000
WWE Late Night RAW (SS3,MON,2600) – 103000
TNA iMPACT! (BRAVO,SAT,2100) – 98000
