IMPACT Wrestling Ratings Drop 20 Percent For December 15 Episode

A return to normality...

Kenny Omega's first appearance in IMPACT Wrestling resulted in a boost in the ratings for the promotion as last week's show averaged 221,000 viewers and earned a 0.08 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. 

IMPACT wasn't able to stay above 200,000 viewers on AXS TV on December 15, though. This week's episode averaged 177,000 viewers, down 20 percent from December 8, and drew a 0.04 rating in the 18-49 demo. Despite fewer viewers tuning in, the show still drew one of it's biggest audiences since mid-August. 

IMPACT's viewing figures on Twitch declined by 71 percent from the week prior. According to Wrestlenomics' Brandon Thurston viewership on December 15 averaged 12,397 and peaked at 14,663.

The Best Bout Machine's segments remained strong on YouTube and Facebook, as did the AEW paid advert featuring Tony Khan and Tony Schiavone. As of Thursday morning, the Omega and The Good Brothers segment with Rich Swann and The Motor City Machine Guns had 268,000 views on YouTube and 162,000 views on Facebook. The vignette with the Tonys has been watched 73,000 times on YouTube and the remaining IMPACT Wrestling clips from Tuesday's episode have averaged 37,000 views on the platform.
