The UK TV Ratings are in for the Week Ending 8th August 2010. According to the Broadcasters Audience Research Board – TNA iMPACT! on Bravo drew 86000 viewers for the “There’s No Place Like Home“ episode which was the “go home” show before HardCORE Justice and was headlined by the Abyss & Raven v RVD & Tommy Dreamer tag match. The hour delay repeat on Bravo+1 drew 54000 viewers for a total of 140,000 viewers on the night.

As for TNA Xplosion, the show drew a superb 18000 viewers, the best result in recent memory and was Extreme Sports Channel’s top ranked program for the week, the repeat interestingly enough was second placed in the rankings. The Xplosion episode in question saw the beginning of the TNA Tag-Team Titles No.1 Contender’s tournament featuring Desmond Wolfe and Magnus vs Hernandez and Rob Terry as well as an Ink Inc. v Generation Me main event. I’m sure TNA and Extreme Sports will be pleased with these numbers, the show has been posting improved ratings scores since the revamp.

Unfortunately the good showings from iMPACT! and Xplosion were not enough to topple WWE RAW from the top spot, drawing 109,000 viewers on Sky Sports 3. Smackdown continued its downward spiral, again out of the SS3 top 10 listings drawing somewhere under 39000 viewers.

WWE Late Night RAW (SS3,MON,2600) – 109000
TNA iMPACT! (BRAVO,SAT,2100) – 86000
