It has been reported that Thursday’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling hit record low viewership figures despite the huge main-event.
In the headline match of this week’s show, Kenny Omega teamed with The Good Brothers to do battle with Sami Callihan, Moose and Chris Sabin.
As per Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, the July 1 episode of IMPACT drew just 69,000 total viewers. This is reportedly the lowest viewership in the show’s history on AXS TV.
In the 18-49 demographic, the show scored a 0.02 rating, reportedly the third lowest in IMPACT history on the network. For comparison, the June 24 episode drew 111,000 viewers, with a 0.03 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
It has since been reported that on Thursday, there was a glitch with TV guide listings on some systems, causing the show to either display the wrong timeslot, or not appear correctly altogether.
IMPACT tweeted about the issues, writing:
“IMPORTANT PROGRAMMING UPDATE: Sorry for any confusion but @AXSTV is having some tech issues with the guide listing, it’s business as usual for all programming tonight with BTI, IMPACT and #IMPACTin60. We recommend you double check your DVR to ensure that IMPACT is set to record.”
DVRs failed to record the show in many instances due to the inaccurate information. The viewership numbers include live and same day viewers, so was likely impacted by the guide listing errors.
On the show, Kenny Omega’s team was victorious, ahead of his IMPACT World Championship match against Sami Callihan at Slammiversary. An update has been provided on Omega’s injuries ahead of the July 17 pay-per-view.
