The third episode of TUF 18: Team Rousey v. Team Tate averaged only 639,000 viewers for the latest episode Wednesday.  It received a 0.3 rating in the key demo of adults 18-49.

Episode 1: 762,000 viewers

Episode 3: 639,000 viewers

Payout Perspective:

TUF went up against Duck Dynasty, which led the night in cable ratings with 9.4 million viewers for a 4.3 rating in the 18-49 demo.  This week featured the men in the octagon.  It also featured another verbal exchange between Rousey and Tate. With next week’s fight being the women, we will see if the ratings will fluctuate.

    Wow a 25% drop. I predicted this for episode 2, guess I was just 1 off. I’m thinking a new series low will be reached with a rating in the 400,000s and this season will sit in the 500-700 range.
