Ratings for Impact Wrestling continued to stay relatively strong for this week’s episode.
The show averaged 362,000 viewers, up from 350,000 the previous week. Every Impact in March has done at least 300,000 viewers, as have nine of the 12 episodes in 2018. The ratings pattern has, in general, been positive since the NFL season ended and after averaging only 161,000 viewers against WWE’s Tribute to the Troops special in December.
This week’s episode did a 0.09 rating in the 18-49 demo, down slightly from the previous Thursday’s 0.10. It featured Abyss vs. Kongo Kong in a Monster’s Ball match, the Feast or Fired briefcase reveal, and EC3’s final appearance for Impact.
After being shown in the crowd at TakeOver: Philadelphia, EC3 arrived in NXT at their TV tapings earlier this month.
The highest number for Impact since July of last year remains the 365,000 viewers for the March 1st show that had Sami Callihan vs. Eddie Edwards and the post-match incident where Edwards was injured when a baseball bat spot went wrong. That July 13th, 2017 episode, which did 374,000 viewers, was the most-watched Impact of last year.
