Spike TV Vice President of Communications David Schwarz recently contacted Prowrestling.net to respond to a report regarding a caller on a recent episode of the Bubba The Love Sponge radio show claiming to work for Spike TV who said the network plans drop TNA. Schwarz had the following to say about the claim by the caller.
“I can assure you the caller was a fake and TNA Impact is not only among the highest rated shows with young men on Spike, but on Thursday nights as well,” Schwarz wrote. “This past Thursday, Among Basic Cable Networks between 9p-11p, TNA ranked #3 in M18-49 behind ESPN (NBA Conf Semis CAVALIERS/CELTICS) and TBS (Disturbia, Family Guy). And our relationship with Dixie (Carter) and TNA has never been stronger.”
