Spike TV president Kevin Kay told Multichannel News that he expects TNA’s offering on January 4th will “draw significant attention from avid wrestling fans and its core young male audience.” Kay wouldn’t predict a rating for TNA on the 4th but did say he thinks TNA can hold it’s own against WWE‘s Monday Night RAW.
Kay also revealed that TNA is looking to air quarterly TNA specials on Monday nights. If the show can draw good numbers, Spike is considering permanently putting TNA on Monday nights head-to-head with WWE and RAW.
Kay added, â€œIf it’s successful, I’m not opposed to moving it to Monday nights. This is the time for this â€¦ TNA has a lot of momentum with Hulk Hogan and we have the ability to market and promote it.â€
