    IMPACT ratings continue to increase in an awful timeslot. Now imagine how high that number would’ve been if it still had it’s 8pm timeslot on Pop.


    • LOLTNA

      IMPACT were drawing under 200,000 in their old timeslot.

      POP/Destination America/Spike isn’t the problem. It’s IMPACT!

    Can I have: ‘Irreconcilable Differences’ (Reelz, 9pm), and ‘Deutschland 86’ (Sundance, 12am)? Thanks!
