TNA switching time slots on Thursday nights to 8 p.m. ET starting May 31

Hulk Hogan will tell you time and time again that Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling/Impact Wrestling is poised to break through to the big leagues with just a few minor changes to the product.

One of those changes came on the show that aired last night (April 26, 2012) on Spike TV when the very first Open Fight Night was held. The results weren't exactly well received by critics and fans alike but it's early enough in the process that judgement should be reserved until a bigger sample size becomes available.

Another change is coming, though, this one much bigger. TNA Impact, the weekly television show airing on Thursday nights on Spike TV, is moving to a new time slot on the very same night. From the press release:

Spike TV's highly-rated two-hour weekly series, TNA's "IMPACT Wrestling" is moving to a new timeslot. On Thursday, May 31 "IMPACT Wrestling will air at 8:00pm ET/PT, moving from its previous timeslot of 9:00pm ET/PT.

The shift to 8:00pm is predicated on the fact that there are more available viewers in the 8:00-10:00pm timeslot with less sports competition in the 8pm hour.

TNA's flagship series, "IMPACT Wrestling," airs weekly on Spike TV and is one of the network's top-rated series. The show is must-see-tv with young men and currently ranks among the top series on cable on Thursdays with Men 18-34.

Now that Impact is moving to Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET, does that make any of you Cagesiders more or less likely to watch it?
