UFC Primetime Episode 1 Condit-GSP earns 629K viewers
November 7, 2012
MMA Fighting reports that last Friday’s debut of the UFC Primetime: GSP-Condit Show received an average of 629,000 viewers. The average according to the article ranges from 540,000 to 560,000 viewers.
It was the first of a three part series which will reintroduce the viewers to GSP as he comes back from a knee injury that left him out of action over 18 months. The first episode also reminds folks that Carlos Condit is the interim champ and takes a glimpse into his humble family life.
According to the report written by Dave Meltzer first episodes of UFC Primetimes tend to be higher rated than the following episodes. TUF, which made a return to a 1 million viewer average Friday, was the lead-in for the series. I’m suspecting that we might see better numbers for this series as one of the company’s top draws, GSP is training for a return to the octagon. I’m sure many are interested on how he looks and whether he’ll be ready next Saturday.
