PWInsider:

The Pursuit Network failed to air the latest episode of Impact Wrestling tonight, instead repeating last week's episode.

The error was 100% on the Pursuit Network's end as Impact aired the correct episode tonight on their Twitch.TV channel.

This latest error is the latest in a series of headaches for Impact since moving to The Pursuit Network.  Despite Anthem owning a stake in the Channel, Impact has found the network to be slow to respond to questions and to complaints, according to several sources. 

Several weeks ago, an Impact broadcast on Pursuit went to commercial before the main event and never returned airing 35 minutes of commercials instead.  The network also took several weeks to list Impact on its programming and for many cable providers, has listed the show as a 30 minute series with three replays, meaning that anyone who DVR'd the series would get only the first 30 minutes of an episode unless they realized the issue and worked around it.

Impact used Pursuit as a stop-gap measure, moving their series there when it needed to leave The Pop Network, a move that also allowed the company to retain their digital rights to the series.  Since that time, the company has been working on trying to land a better TV deal.  While there has been hope and excitement about a potential deal among those in the company, there's been no confirmation that anything is close to being signed.

In the meantime, Impact continues to deal with embarrassing situations like tonight and a Network partner that fails to truly assist or promote them in any way, shape or form.

They're like WCW but without the viewers or stars.

It can happen on any station of course. A 1989 episode of World Championship Wrestling reached the first commercial break before TBS staff realised it was the same episode that had aired 3 weeks before. They didn't find the correct tape for the 8/19/89 episode until almost a hour after the broadcast ended, and it's likely it won't be seen until the WWE Network gets round to adding it.

That’s actually very interesting; thanks for sharing

I think we’ve gone well past one mistake to a pattern of this network not even giving the slightest of fucks.

I am continually amazed that they are still in existence. As for that cable channel, I have never heard of it.

I remember that rerun episode of World Championship Wrestling in the summer of 1989 because I turned on the show late and was surprised to see Ricky Steamboat who had just quit. It quickly became obvious that the show was old.
