LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The return of Hulk Hogan to pro wrestling gave Spike TV's "TNA Impact" its highest ratings ever Monday night.

The special live three-hour edition of "Impact" drew 2.2 million viewers, making it the most-watched episode in the franchise's history.

Meanwhile, over on ABC Family, a presumably very different audience set some records for "Secret Life of the American Teenager." The "2B" premiere was the network's most-watched telecast ever among certain key demos (12-34 and teens) while ranking as the second most-watched episode in the show's history.
