TNA Impact Sets Records for Spike, But is Smacked-Down by WWE Raw Anyway
Spike TV’s TNA Impact! set a viewership record during Monday night’s three-hour special featuring Hulk Hogan, averaging 2.2 million viewers. The previous viewing record was 1.9 million viewers set in April 2008.
The first hour of the special averaged 2.5 million viewers.
Records or not, USA Network’s WWE Monday Night Raw put the smackdown on TNA Impact with an average of 5.5 million viewers from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m vastly outdistancing the the 2 million viewers the TNA Impact! averaged during those two hours.
