This week's Impact followed a very similar pattern to last week's show - U.K. Impact started slow with a 0.98 Q1 rating, built to a 1.38 Q5 rating, dipped off the remainder of the second hour, and finished with a 1.17 Q8 rating.

Q6: Impact began a post-Hogan Family Drama slide with a 1.25 rating for Dixie Carter's announcement of Impact going on the road, Velvet Sky teaming with James Storm against Tara and Jessie, and one commercial. (LW - 1.24 rating, continuing the pattern.)

Q7: Impact dipped slightly to a 1.22 rating for various video packages and backstage segments, plus one commercial. (LW - 1.20 rating, continuing the pattern.)
