Last week, Lethal Lockdown saw the Beat Down Clan squaring off against Team Angle. Bobby Lashley made a surprise appearance to join with Angle, evening up the odds and giving Team Angle the win. Can Lashley and Angle continue to co-exist?
We are in Glasgow, Scotland, as Impact Wrestling kicks off.
Just a little while ago, Dixie Carter tweeted out the following, pointing to a press release that has been posted by Discovery Communications.
The press release from Discovery hypes up the fact that over 4 million viewers have tuned in over the first four weeks. It also says that Impact scored sixth most in social television on January 7, collecting 73 million Twitter impressions for the hashtag #DestinationImpact. They go on to tout a number of other statistics in which TNA has ranked highly in the 25-54 demographic on several Friday night shows. On January 23, Impact finished #3 behind the X Games and NBA basketball for sports programming and delivered above networks such as A&E, ESPN 2, TNT, and FXX in the Male 25-54 demographic.
The full press release is posted below.

We rarely post news on television ratings for the various shows we cover here on Ring-Rap, but it’s worth pointing out the numbers that TNA drew this past Friday for the Lockdown episode of iMPACT.
After a slightly down week last week, TNA bounced back with their 9PM show drawing 525,000 viewers, and a 0.17 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The viewership number tops their best to date since the debut on January 7. On January 23, TNA drew 517,000 for the 9PM showing of iMPACT. This is the new high-water mark for the show since it has aired on Destination America.
The 11PM EST rebroadcast of iMPACT drew in another 166,000 viewers, and a 0.06 in the 18-49 demographic. This is an increase of 13,000 viewers. This brings their total for the Lockdown show to 691,000 viewers.
Even with less market penetration and airing on a less than desirable television night in Friday night, people are finding the TNA product. This bodes well for the network and the company. So far, the relationship seems to be working out as Discovery Networks is giving them support that Spike did not. Time will tell if the positive trend continues.
Hey everyone! It’s time for a special edition of TNA Impact. It’s time for Lockdown! Six sides of steel, surrounding the ring, tonight all matches will be held inside the cage. We’ve got a Lethal Lockdown match between the Beat Down Clan, and Kurt Angle and his team. Plus, the Tag Team Titles are on the line, with The Hardys vs. The Revolution, and Awesome Kong vs. Havok.
This evening, Bill Wentz from our “Ring Rap Audio” show had the opportunity to appear on Choked Out Radio with Jairo Borja. The pair covered a wide range of topics, including current WWE booking heading into the Fast Lane pay per view, the Triple H interview with Stone Cold Steve Austin, and a few TNA-related topics as well.
The show was live from 9PM EST to 10PM EST, but if you missed the live airing, you can catch the recorded on-demand version at BlogTalk Radio. Also, be sure to stop by and check out Choked Out Radio’s blog site and catch up with his latest thoughts on pro wrestling and MMA.
