The UK TV Ratings are in for the debut edition of TNA iMPACT! on Challenge! (Week Ending 13th February 2011).

According to the Broadcasters Audience Research Board – TNA iMPACT! on Challenge drew a superb 134,000 viewers for the Tuesday 8th “Expect the Unexpected“ episode headlined by the Mr. Anderson vs. Jeff Hardy World Title bout and the Fortune “THEY” reveal.

This is a superb number for iMPACT! and way up on the numbers they were posting most recently on Bravo. The program ranked 5th amongst all programming on Challenge that week.

9 IN IT TO WIN IT (WED 2101) 111
10 FAMILY FORTUNES (TUE 2032) 109

TNA Xplosion which followed iMPACT! immediately at midnight was unranked, likely due to the program largely being DVR’d by viewers given the late timeslot.

WWE Raw has saw a large upswing in viewership of late, given that it’s “Wrestlemania Season” and posted 149,000 viewers to win the week. Smackdown’s initial airing once again failed to make the top 10 rankings, but the Saturday morning replay garnered 33,000 viewers. Here’s an overview of viewership for all wrestling programming:

    134,000? That dosent sound too many at 1st, but I didn’t realise RAW only draws 149,000 and I’m stunned Smackdown only gets 33,000. How can Smackdown get 100,000 less viewers than RAW? Insanity.

    Disappointing that TNA impact get beaten by Catchphrase repeats from the early 90s!
