The UK TV Ratings are in for the Week Ending 10th October 2010. And unfortunately it would appear TNA’s recent five week win streak is over. According to the Broadcasters Audience Research Board – TNA iMPACT! on Bravo drew 90,000  viewers for the Saturday 9th “Before The Glory” episode headlined by the $100,000 Battle Royal won by Kurt Angle. This was down 17,000 viewers on last week’s edition of iMPACT!.

The one hour time delay broadcast of iMPACT! on Bravo+1 drew a decent 43,000 viewers meaning a total viewership of 133,000 viewers for ! on the Saturday night.

WWE will be very pleased that the recent worrying downtrend in ratings for their flagship RAW show have turned around drawing 119,000 viewers this week, almost doubling the 66,000 viewers it drew last week. Smackdown also dropped significantly in the ratings again, dropping at least 20,000 viewers on last week’s episode, the program ranked outside Sky Sports 3’s top 10 programmes so an exact figure was not available but it was definitely under 50,000 viewers.

TNA Xplosion on Extreme Sports continued to improve and was the 3rd highest rated program on Extreme Sports Channel drawing 11,000 viewers.

WWE Late Night RAW (SS3,MON,2600) – 119000
