The problem for TNA is that there's almost no way that you can build up to a monthly pay per view with only four or five hours of TV to set the card and push the matches. TNA does a good enough job of this, but the flipside is that TNA has to go with lots of squash matches so they can show more wrestlers to build to the PPV. A two hour show would definately help to improve Impact's pacing, but their roster may be too thin to sustain two hours of TV each week. Plus there will inevitably me more pressure to do what the WWE does by giving away "pay per view caliber" matches for free. After all, people might watch one hour of mainly squash matches, but at two hours it becomes WCW Saturday Night circa 1998 (and I say this not having a problem with the format of Impact right now).

The ideal situation for TNA at this point would be one hour a week, preferably in prime time, and about four to eight PPVs a years so that they aren't so rushed and interchangable (which they seem like now).

Yeah! I've been to a couple of their events in Brooklyn - Twoflowers assessment is basically correct.
