EliteXC & WEC Ratings

September 26, 2007

The 9/15 EliteXC show on Showtime headlined by Robbie Lawler v. Ninja Rua to unify the Middleweight titles did a 1.14 rating which due to Showtime’s limited clearance is only 231,000 viewers. The rating is slightly ahead of what the network normally does on Saturday night. The show drew a 0.87 in males 18-34 and a 0.81 in males 35-49. This has to be considered a good showing considering the fact that they were without their marquee names and still posted the third highest MMA rating on Showtime. The rest of the top five:

  • Frank Shamrock v. Phil Baroni – 1.71 / 410,000 viewers
  • Frank Shamrock v. Renzo Gracie – 1.62
  • Brock Lesnar v. Kim Min-soo and Royce Graice v. Kazushi Sakuraba – 1.07
  • Live K-1 Los Angeles Coliseum Show Prelims – 0.75

The 9/5 WEC show did a 0.5 rating which is the highest rating of the brand’s three live shows thus far.
