TUF 17 episode 5: 1.13 million viewers

February 22, 2013

Television By Numbers reports that TUF on FX this past week received an average viewership of 1.13 million viewers.  The rating was good for a 0.6 rating.

Via MMA Fighting:

The show did healthy demographic numbers, doing a 1.45 in Males 18-34, the group the FOX family contracted with UFC to super serve. It also did a 1.17 in Males 18-49.

TUF 17 Episode 1: 1.51 million
TUF 17 Episode 2: 1.27 million
TUF 17 Episode 3: 1.191 million
TUF 17 Episode 4: 1.25 million
TUF 17 Episode 5: 1.13 million

At this point, the season average rests around 1.27 million.

Payout Perspective:

A problem with TUF on Tuesdays is that on the west coast it shows only at 6:00pm without a later rerun.  This may contribute to the lower ratings.  Its a theory anyways.  This week saw the appearance of Mickey Rourke talking to the fighters about his days as a boxer.  An interesting and random appearance.

    We dont get a replay on the East coast either. I missed this weeks show and remembers right after it was over. Turned it over to FX and no replay. This happened a few episodes ago too. Not sure why they dont do the replay. Maybe to get people to tune in for the “live” showing to boost numbers. But they do show a replay on a different day. I think its on Fuel though.

    Yes replays appear in a few days on Fuel. I have forgotten to tape on Tuesdays, but replay on Fuel or wait and it appears onDemand as well.

    Until they revamp the format, these are the types of ratings they will get.

    Brainsmasher said after the spinning heel episode that next weeks ratings would pick up because of word of mouth and would continue to improve.i guess not lol….UFC is really hard selling now they are trying to get the women market with rousey to attract a different demo.to counter the eventual decline…putting band aids to a long term problem

    That isnt what i said at all. I said any effect that kick would have would be shown the next week and that if it didnt increase the ratings it would slow the decline. As you can see i was right. The ratings the next week jumped from 1.19 to 1.25. So you might want to sharpen up on your reading comprehension skills.

    “From my experiences with TUF ratings. When something great happens it ussually reflect on the next weeks ratings…..But this KO is all over the internet and that good press will help promote the show either boosting next weeks ratings or slowing the decline.”
