The following are the quarter-hour ratings for Thursday's TNA Impact Wrestling television show.

Q1: 0.98 rating - Dixie Carter, Bully Ray, and Magnus promo. One commercial break.

Q2: 0.91 rating - Bully Ray rallies the troops, . Robbie E vs. Hernandez vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Eric Young, AJ Styles arrives. One commercial break.

Q3: 0.84 rating - AJ Styles promo and Aces and Eights attack, Knux vs. Gunner, Chris Sabin promo. One commercial break.

Q4: 0.78 rating - Aces and Eights promo, Chris Sabin and Samoa Joe promo. Two commercial breaks.

Q5: 0.84 rating - Chris Sabin vs. Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, Jeff Hardy, and Manik run-in after match, Bad Influence attack on AJ Styles, EC III vignette. One commercial break.

Q6: 0.80 rating - Magnus vs. Bully Ray. Two commercial breaks.

Q7: 0.77 rating - Magnus and Sting argue, Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode talking segment. One commercial break.

Q8: 0.81 rating - Bound for Glory contract signing. One commercial break.

Shore's Slant: Thursday's TNA Impact Wrestling television show drew a 0.84 rating and averaged 1.10 million viewers. This was the go home show for Bound for Glory and the sagging numbers seem to indicate poor buys for that show. Quarter seven had major star power (as far as TNA is concerned) and only one commercial break and still had the worst quarter. That's stunning.
