Thanks to Brandon Thurston over at Wrestlenomics, we now have some concrete viewership numbers for Impact. He’s even prepared some charts so you can see them long-term. This is really the first time we’ve had actual data as the numbers don’t appear in the usual places we look:
I've gotten a hold of weekly Impact Wrestling viewership on AXS TV.
Little was previously known about Impact viewership. It doesn't get reported on Showbuzzdaily. Some data has been reported by PWTorch. I've previously tweeted monthly data. pic.twitter.com/RiW4lUqwcO

Botch Take: This is absolutely deplorable. We knew that, given their carrier, the numbers weren’t good. This is some other level of bad. How it is that they’re “keeping the lights on” is anyone’s guess. It’s really interesting what happens when there’s any wrestling opposition. You can see the results toward the end of the first chart. Their numbers, already incredibly low, dive even lower. In short, no one is watching Impact Wrestling. The end.
