All In Zero Hour draws 196,000 viewers

September 5, 2018

All In Zero Hour on WGN America Saturday afternoon drew 196,000 viewers according to Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.  The event preceded the first major Independent Wrestling PPV in years.

The one-hour broadcast featured one match and a battle royale and more importantly, promoted All In, an event that sold out (over 11,000 in attendance) the Sears Centre in Chicago, Illinois.

Payout Perspective:

The ratings are on par with that of Professional Fighters League on NBC Sports Network and TUF on FS1.  It is slightly lower than an average Impact show on Pop TV.  Although it was a one-time show, WGN America, until recently has not been showing pro wrestling or any other sporting event for that matter (unless maybe its MLB).  Thus, the near 200,000 viewers followed via social media and regional promotions to know of the event.  The rating is a testament that there is a space for independent pro wrestling.
