Thursday’s edition of WWE Superstars (March 17, 2011) drew a 0.52 cable rating with 541,000 viewers. The replay scored a 0.2 rating with 200,000 viewers. As noted previously here on WrestleHeat.com, the future of the show is much in question as WGN America revealed that the show will not continue airing on the network after the show following WrestleMania. WWE has not publically commented on the status of the show. It is unknown if WWE will put future episodes on their website or decide to drop the show altogether.
TNA iMPACT, which airs an hour following Superstars on WGN America, drew a 1.28 cable rating, rounded up to a 1.3. In the demographics, it drew a 0.9 amongst male adults 18-49, a 0.54 among males 18-34 and an average audience of 1.781 million viewers, up from last week even against the NCAA games on cable and CBS.
