There was said to be some surprise within TNA when the rating for this past Thursday’s Impact came in at a 1.1 rating. Many were expecting the show to draw in the 0.9 range going head-to-head with the Florida-Oklahoma national championship football game. Shows on Christmas night and New Years did well for the company. TNA is heading into 2009 with some of the strongest ratings in company history.
