Whenever a television show moves from one television network to another, there is usually a drop in viewership because not everyone remembers the change or knows how to find the new channel. Dixie Carter has to be pleased because Impact Wrestling drew in more viewers on their POP TV debut than they did during their final televised episode on Destination America.

Now that Impact Wrestling has made its debut on Destination America, all eyes are on the ratings to see how they would compare with the numbers that TNA was drawing on Spike TV. Total viewers drawn in for the episode were approximately 368,000, which is a lot less than on the previous network. However, those numbers were good enough to make professional the wrestling the most watched show on the network. That is a positive start for Dixie Carter.

When Dixie Carter announced a new television deal with Destination America, a lot of changes were said to be in place when Impact Wrestling made its debut on the new network. One of the directions that TNA is headed is that their weekly television show will have more of a reality television feel to it. Cameras are going to be rolling from all angles. There are even talks that the wrestlers might break character in backstage interviews from time to time.

Not only is Impact Wrestling going to be airing on a new channel, they're also going to be on a different night. TNA is going back to its roots by being aired on Friday night, which was their slot when they had a deal with Fox Sports Network about a decade ago. Start time is 9pm. The official debut date for the show on Destination America is January 7, which is actually a Wednesday. The belief is that Dixie Carter agreed to the new night, provided they can move later.
