TUF 17 Episode 2: 1.27 million viewer average
January 30, 2013
MMA Fighting reports that the second episode of The Ultimate Fighter did 1.27 million viewers for a 0.9 rating. The ratings reflect a decrease from the season debut on FX.
According to Television By Numbers, TUF did 1.27 million viewers for a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demo for its time slot.
TUF 17 Episode 1: 1.51 million
TUF 17 Episode 2: 1.27 million
The numbers are better than that on Friday nights and MMA Fighting indicates that the decrease between the debut and second episode is common for the series. But, the ratings are not in line with the series’ run on Spike TV. Does anyone else feel like the ratings for the second week be better considering the UFC put two of its biggest stars as coaches?
