Last night's Impact drew 268,000 viewers, tying the June 29 show for worst ratings of the Anthem era. 

However Meltzer is reporting that Impact will remain on Pop TV through the end of 2018 as a 1-year contract extension is just about finalized.  There had been some internal concern that Impact was underperforming even by Pop's low expectations, but they're going to stick it out.

Any idea on what kind of ratings ROH draws?

ROH is part of a syndicated network so it's not really the same thing. But for the few months that ROH and Impact were both on Spike, Impact did better by more than 100,000. I think ROH topped out at over 200,000 at a time when Impact was regularly doing better than 300,000. But ROH was still being shown on their syndicated networks too, and Spike also aired an Impact replay, so the total number of viewers for both shows were higher than that. Now Impact will argue that they get a lot of social media views, which dwarf the number of people who actually sit and watch a full show.

More people watch Impact's YouTube uploads than watch the show while it is going on. They basically post everything you need to see anyway, plus a highlights package. Sometimes these posts are going up while the show is going on. The ones with Alberto in them received more views than anything else. 

I dunno about ROH. It has its cult following, but in Buffalo it basically acts as cheap weekend filler for its parent company Sinclair Broadcasting. They are running a show with New Japan this Fall in a formerly abandoned warehouse on the waterfront, and that thing doesn't hold many people. It's mostly a cheap concert venue. The last time they came to town, they ran an old mansion in a town 30 mins northeast of the city. A far cry from the late 90s when WWE, WCW, and ECW came to town all the time.

They were on Destination America at the same time. ROH was on twice as well at first, but had the 8 pm airing pulled out from under them due to the ratings. After that, they were just on at 11. They were on that network for even less time than Impact was.

Last night against the return of the NFL, Impact did 227,000.  That's by far the lowest number of the year. 

To put this in perspective, in early 2016 TNA topped 450,000 viewers on a couple of occasions.  As 2016 wore on, they steadily lost viewers and 400,000 became a huge achievement (and a bounce-back number) when the Hardys single-handedly got them there with "Final Deletion". 

So in a little more than a year and a half, they lost almost exactly half their audience, which had already dramatically eroded long before 2016.  And now we're here, with Impact hoping they don't drop below 200,000.   And Thursday Night Football isn't going anywhere for a LONG time.
