After a one-year experiment of broadcasting Impact on Thursday nights starting at 8 p.m. ET, TNA has made the decision to push the show back to its 9 p.m. time slot starting on May 30, 2013. This after there was no noticeable change in the ratings and nothing to indicate staying the course.
Here's the tweet from promotion President Dixie Carter announcing the change:
Originally, Spike TV wanted Impact on at 8 p.m. ET so it could run Bellator shows immediately after at 10 p.m. However, Bellator is moving to Wednesday nights, leaving little reason for Impact to stay in its current slot.
I guess Hulk Hogan was wrong after all, huh?
