Newsday is featuring an interview with TNA commentator Taz. During the interview, Taz addressed this Monday’s big live three-hour edition of TNA Impact and if the rating for the show will be important.
“I?ll be completely honest with you. Unlike everybody else in this business, I?m not obsessed with the ratings ? no matter if it’s positive or negative. I know when I was in WWE and I was on Smackdown and I was the host, at some point we were doing monster ratings unbeknownst to me. And the reason is I believe in concentrating on doing a good segment. And then there’s a commercial break. And then let’s do a better segment. And there’s a commercial break. And then let’s do another good segment. That’s how I look at it.
So I?m not one of those guys who’s obsessed with the ratings. I know how important it is. Don?t get me wrong. I know that’s advertising money. I know that’s what the network wants. I get that. I?m totally down with that. But I can?t sit here and predict a rating, because some of our better shows in TNA in my short time with the company I thought would do monster ratings, and then they didn?t. And then there were some shows that I didn?t think were that good as shows, and they did a better rating. So you can?t figure it out. There’s really no rhyme or reason. It’s truly hard to figure out.”
