The following are the quarter-hour ratings for Thursday's TNA Impact Wrestling television show.
Q1: 0.86 rating - Hulk Hogan and Shaquille O'Neal backstage, Kurt Angle and A.J. Styles name Open Fight NIght opponents, Angle and Styles vs. Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez

Q7: 1.09 rating - Aces & 8s on the big screen in back and forth with Hogan, Joseph Park struck with a hammer, Jeff Hardy video, Austin Aries in-ring promo and calls out Bully Ray
Q8: 1.06 rating - Aries vs. Bully Ray, Hardy out to help Aries, Aries gets upset when he sees Hardy holding the TNA Title
Powell's POV: The show drew a 0.97 overall rating and averaged 1.34 million viewers on Thursday. It appears that some viewers just aren't watching the first hour, as ratings generally increase for TNA in the second hour. As I mentioned on Friday, it will be interesting to see how Impact ratings are affected by NFL Network and Time Warner cable finally reaching a deal that will give 12 million cable subscribers a chance to watch NFL games on Thursday night.
