WWE RAW did a 3.2 cable rating. Here's the latest ratings data:

In other news: 

iMPACT Moving To 8:00 PM Mondays Permanently

TNA president Dixie Carter announced on her Twitter account that iMPACT! would be moving permanently to 8:00 p.m. on Monday nights starting next week.

Additionally, Spike will run weekly encore airings of iMPACT! every Thursday night at 9:00 p.m.

The announcement comes on the heels of TNA experimenting the show at 8:00 p.m. this past Monday, which resulted in a ratings increase from the previous week.

My thoughts:

Well this was a good week for TNA but it didn't not surprise me one bit.                Why u may ask?
Well first of all like it says on the report they had a special air time this week, course there gonna do better against Raw there not going against them head to head  and second this week guest host on Raw was David Otunga.... yeah that says it all, A lister MY ASS! dude so lame he makes Cena look like The Rock. But on to TNA... well it was good this week. Had some nice matches but the night stealer was Mr. Anderson VS Kurt Angle in a ladder match. Incredible match with a lot of dangerous spots (one that I think Kurt got hurt) and one awesome finisher to it. Over all this week was good for wrestling and im surprise to say TNA beat Raw this week has a over all product.

HERE TO TNA GETTING BACK ON TRACK SO WWE WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO DO THE SAME

What do you think, readers?

What do you think about this week ratings and the shows?

With was your pick this week?
