The UK TV Ratings are in for the Week Ending 17th October 2010. According to the Broadcasters Audience Research Board – TNA iMPACT! on Bravo drew 84,000  viewers for the Saturday 16th “THEY Have Arrived” post-Bound For Glory episode headlined by the Mr. Anderson vs. Rob Van Dam Number 1 contenders match. This was down 6,000 viewers on last week’s edition of iMPACT!.

The one hour time delay broadcast of iMPACT! on Bravo+1 drew a superb 66,000 viewers, up 23,000 on last week. This means a total viewership of 150,000 viewers for iMPACT! on the Saturday night.

TNA Bound For Glory was the top rated program on Extreme Sports Channel, with 33,000 viewers. Considering the time and channel this was on, not to mention the fact that it was on a five day delay – leaving the majority of fans open to watching early via other means, this is a tremendous rating and certainly one of if not thee best rated TNA PPV’s on Extreme.

TNA Xplosion on Extreme Sports was ranked outside the top 10 programmes this week, drawing somewhere under 8,000 viewers.

WWE also suffered knocks in viewership this week with Raw drawing 109,000 viewers, down 8,000 on last week but enough to win the uk wrestling ratings war this week. Smackdown continued its ratings slide after showing some promise early in the month. The show was once again outside the top 10 programmes on Sky Sports 3, drawing somewhere under 42,000 viewers.
