"Destination America is not renewing TNA Wrestling next year. While the ratings were strong, the audience was not large enough to justify the program investment. We plan to honor the current contract and continue to air original episodes of TNA Wrestling on Friday nights through the end of the third quarter 2015. When the up-front rate card is released, the Friday night anthology title will now be called 'American Tales,' which will be a combination of Paranormal and Americana programming. I hope this is good news given all of the advertisers that included TNA on their DNA list."
That last line... ouch.

She's an idiot if she did that
It's surprising how common this actually is. More than once I've seen execs where I work CC the wrong people on sensitive e-mails.

It will be interesting to see what happens to ROH if/when DA drops Impact altogether.

You can tell that Impact is fighting for it's life, when they have EC3 take the TNA title from Kurt Angle on Impact and not on the big Slammiversary ppv, which created some awkward continuity issues.
So far, Impact is still doing higher ratings than ROH, but the gap isn't too far when you factor in replay ratings and DVR numbers, and ROH isn't as expensive for DA to run.
