Showbuzz Daily has the ratings and viewership available for Tuesday’s new episode of Impact Wrestling on AXS TV. Ratings and viewership were slightly up this week as the show returned with new content for Impact’s first episode of 2021.

Tuesday night’s episode saw an increase in viewership with 148,000 viewers. The show also drew a 0.04 rating in the P18-49 key demographic.

Impact Wrestling closed out last year with back-to-back Best of 2020 specials, along with the Year End Awards. Last week’s Best of 2020 Part 2 special drew a 0.01 rating in the P18-49 key demographic and 103,000 viewers. So Impact ratings and viewership were both up this week.

This week’s episode did feature another appearance from AEW World champion Kenny Omega to advance his storyline with The Good Brothers and Rich Swann. Also, Impact did manage to chart into the Cable Top 150 rankings at No. 140 for Tuesday night. Last week’s Best of 2020 special was able to make it onto the rankings.
