TUF 13 Episode 5: 1.5 million viewers

April 28, 2011

MMA Junkie reports that last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV a season-best average of 1.5 million viewers. Episode 5 received a 1.3 rating among men 18-49 and a 1.4 among men 18-34.

 Via MMA Junkie:

Wednesday’s episode scored a 1.3 household rating overall and matched the 1.5 million viewers who tuned in for the season debut back in March. They also were up 15 percent from the week prior.

 Payout Perspective:

Perhaps it’s the fight week bump, but TUF tied for its highest ratings this season.  Of course, the 1.5 million debut was disappointing considering the Kimbo Slice-Matt Mitrione season averaged 4.1 million viewers. With the increase in viewership of TUF, we shall see if the ratings positively affected the ratings for UFC Primetime on ESPN2 and Spike TV last night.
