The UK TV Ratings are in for the Week Ending 26th September 2010. According to the Broadcasters Audience Research Board – TNA iMPACT! on Bravo drew 96,000 viewers for the Saturday 18th “They say…..only the strong will survive“ episode headlined by the AJ Styles v Sabu Ladder Match. Whilst this is down approximately 10,000 viewers on last week’s edition of iMPACT!, it’s still a tremendous showing given that the show was pushed back over two hours for Alex Reid’s MMA fight, which i might add also overran meaning iMPACT! did not start until almost 25 minutes after the alloted timeslot.

What will also make this even sweeter for TNA is that they once again outdrew WWE’s flagship RAW show by a large margin of at least 27,000 viewers with Raw failing to rank in Sky Sports 3’s top 10 programmes drawing somewhere under 69,00o viewers. Smackdown continued it’s improved audience numbers but still failed to outdraw iMPACT! with 82,000 viewers, up 4,000 on last week.

There were no figures released by BARB for the Extreme Sports Channel this week so we are unable to bring you TNA Xplosion viewership numbers but would suspect it was in or around the usual 11,000 mark.

Weekly Ratings Summary:
TNA iMPACT!  (BRAVO,SAT,2325) – 96000
WWE Late Night RAW (SS3,MON,2600) – Rnaked outside Top 10 – drew under 69000

Weekly Ratings Wins so far (2010)*:
TNA iMPACT! – 19
WWE RAW – 18

*Based on first showing viewing figures, not inclusive of +1 or replay figures.
