The Monday Night Massacre worsens, TNA's rating falls to a 0.8

Eric Bischoff may regret shaving his head for this dismal rating!
Eric Bischoff may regret shaving his head for this dismal rating!

According to the Observer website and the ratings they published last week, Raw's rating this week rose by three tenths of a ratings point to a 3.7, while TNA's dropped by two tenths to a 0.8.  This means that Raw roughly quadrupled Impact's audience this week.  To say this is another bad sign for TNA is probably an understatement.  Dixie Carter can only cross her fingers, hope and pray that all the viewers lost from last week's two airings of Impact heeded her message on Twitter and didn't forget to set their DVRs this week.  Unfortunately the odds of that are pretty slim.

UPDATE:  According to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez on their breaking news radio update, Impact peaked with a 0.96 rating for the quarter starting at 9:45pm (coinciding with the start of the Hogan/Sting confrontation) and continued to drop until the overrun, which showed a very small increase.  In particular, the AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy DREAM~!!! main event got destroyed, only drawing a 0.73 rating compared to Raw's 4.3 rating for the contract signing angle with Bret Hart, Vince McMahon and Steve Austin.
