The sad part about all this is that the rubes would rather watch RAW
"sportz entertainment" instead of TNA

My first thought was "I hope Vince gets the Rock back for that RAW." But
then I remembered that Impact can't even break a 1.5 (maybe they haven. I
haven't kept up with the ratings, but I know they are still in the 1s).
Vince could put Hornswoggle as Guest Host, and Impact wouldn't get a 2 if
they showed a live feed of the following weeks RAW.

Seriously, this move makes no sense. If Impact were making high 2s, I'd
understand, but why force your already low viewership to decide between
yourself and the, clearly, number one organization in the world, on a night
that has been owned by said competition for the past decade?

I think you're right. I don't remember the circumstances but the last
time RAW went head-to-head with Impact, Impact got killed.

I wouldn't expect much different this time, unless they do something
crazy and hotshot a match we have never seen before, like Foley vs Hogan.

And that won't happen.

Impact hasn't aired on a Monday since I started reviewing it. And we're
talking at least 3 or 4 yrs there, so if it aired on a Monday before it was
when the promotion was still considered too young to be a threat.

Though I do think Dixie is a ***ing idiot who is willingly destroying her
own company by airing opposite their biggest contender for an audience.
Dixie, its not too late to change your mind.  Run a live Thursday show
instead, no-one watches Superstars anyway.
Or they can open the show with Bischoff reading the results of that nights
RAW.

Its been done before, and it worked.

I believe that RAW aired on a Thursday, TNA Impact's as night,  three or
so years ago.  But I'm going from memory.

I remember TNA showing a 'Best of' show up against either a RAW or a
Smackdown a few years ago on a non-traditional RAW/SD night.
