TUF 13 Episode 8: 1.2 million viewers

May 19, 2011

According to Television By Numbers, episode 8 of The Ultimate Fighters scored an average of 1.177 million viewers. It received a 0.8 household rating and earned a 0.6 for the 18-49 adult demo.

Spike TV released numbers contrary to those from TBN: a 1.12 household rating (including a 1.1 in males 18-49 as well as a 1.14 in males 18-34) (via MMA Mania)

Payout Perspective:

Although the actual numbers state an average of 1.177 million, we’ve given TUF the benefit of the doubt and rounded up to 1.2 in the title of this post. The numbers are better than last week’s season low and this week TUF had heavy opposition from the Bulls-Heat NBA playoff game. Although TUF featured two quarterfinal elimination bouts, they were less than stellar as Ramsey Nijem squashed Clay Harvison and Chris Cope won a decision over Shamar Bailey. As the season winds down, it will be interesting how Brock Lesnar pulling out of UFC 131 will affect the rest of the season.
