The Problem with the Impact TV Show
I'm a fan of TNA now Impact wrestling since the beginning. I stop watching for a couple of years during the hogan era because i thought the product was dumb and look just like what WWE would produce. Then near the end of the hogan era, i started to rewatch to product. First it was once and a while when i didn'T have anything else to watch and then i went back to watching full time.
But for the last few years, since they started to tape three months worth of tv in a week, i kinda a see a pattern developing with the end product and i think it's a major problem with the show itself. It's the fact that they don't have enough content to fill a 2 hour show each week. So to fill up time, they normally put a replay of a match that aired in the first hour. That's a problem because fans already saw that match so why would they be interested in seeing the whole match again.
Impact needs to find a way to fill that empty segment in a way that entertaining and make sense during the body of the show. Either that or do a half hour pre show where you hype the next episode and you some of the stuff they publish on youtube to fill the half hour they waste every thursdays.
Outside of that, i think the show is finally finding a way to be entertaining and i tend to really loving what i see every week. So they have a good formula, they just need to find a more creative way to fill those empty segment then offering a full replay of a match that just happen during the body of the show.
