TNA Impact rating are in for Thursday’s IMPACT WRESTLING June 6, 2013 episode as it scored an overall 0.91 rating.

TNA Impact ratings for the entire second hour, starting with Rampage Jackson’s Impact TV debut, which was heavily promoted during the first hour, was right at a 0.9 rounded rating.

Impact’s peak rating was a 1.08 rating at the start of the show, which, two weeks ago, was the top of the second hour. Impact did not come close to a 1.0 rating the remainder of the show against the NBA Finals Game 1.

First Hour Break Down

Q1: Impact opened with a 1.08 rating for Bully Ray’s show-opening promo, Hulk Hogan interrupting, Jeff Hardy returning, and the nonsensical set-up for the TV main event. There was no commercial during this segment, boosting the rating.

Q2: Impact dropped to a 0.92 rating for Chavo Guerrero vs. Hernandez and two full commercial breaks.

Q3: Impact declined to a 0.89 rating for Devon calling out Abyss, Joseph Park, a brief Samoa Joe vs. Robbie E. match tucked at the end of the quarter-hour, and one full commercial.

Q4: TNA Impact ratings declined to a show-low 0.83 rating for a filler segment consisting of Kurt Angle’s Hall of Fame video, Mickie James and Velvet Sky backstage, hype for Rampage Jackson, and two full commercials. This would have been the end of the show two weeks ago.

Second Hour Break Down

Q5: TNA Impact ratings got a slight top-of-the-second-hour bump to a 0.91 rating for Rampage Jackson’s TV debut, Kurt Angle’s interruption, and their staredown. It wasn’t the significant bump TNA and Spike would have preferred, as the segment only reached the show’s average for the night.

The Rampage-Angle segment did end half-way through the quarter-hour, then was followed by one commercial, Aces & Eights backstage, and ring introductions for a six-man tag match. We’ll be able to break this down further in the minute-by-minute ratings next week.

Q6: TNA Impact ratings was essentially the same with a 0.90 rating for the six-man tag match, which coincided with the NBA Finals Game hitting halftime. There was also one commercial and backstage Knockouts skits.

Q7: TNA Impact ratings was essentially the same with a 0.91 rating for Mickie James vs. Taeler Hendrix, more A&E backstage, video packages, one full commercial, and ring introductions for the main event as the NBA game returned from Halftime.

Q8: Impact was essentially the same with a 0.92 rating for Bully Ray vs. Jeff Hardy in the main event, one mid-match commercial, and the non-conclusion of the match.
