The lead-in, TNA’s Impact Wrestling received 1.49 million viewers for a 0.5 rating according to Television By Numbers.  This was slightly up from last week.

Payout Perspective:

Good ratings considering Bellator went up against NCAA Basketball.  The show featured Emmanuel Newton as he defeated Mikhail Zayats in the main event.  Newton was the surprising winner of the Light Heavyweight Tournament as “King” Mo Lawal and “Babalu” Sabral were early favorites to win but were upset.  It would have been interesting to see the ratings if either Lawal or Sabral had made the final.  But, as with March Madness that’s the unpredictable factor of the tournament.
