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