Powell's POV: The first hour of the show drew a 0.88 rating, which is up from the 0.782 first-hour rating last week.The second hour scored a 1.075 rating, which is up from the 1.0 rating the second hour drew last week. The overall show drew a 0.978 rating, up from the 0.89. More people found the show in the earlier time slot, but they're still not back to the mark they were at prior to time slot shift. They still have at least one more night against NBA competition and potentially a second game if the NBA series isn't a sweep. The good news for TNA is that the NBA Finals games won't start until an hour into the show, though they will face pre-game competition for their own first hour.
