TUF Nations Episode 5: 187,000

February 15, 2014

MMA Payout has learned from Nielsen sources that the fifth episode of TUF Nations on FS1 received an average viewership of just 187,000 viewers.

TUF Nations: Australia vs. Canada

Episode 1:  371,000 viewers

Episode 2:  253,000 viewers

Episode 3:  107,000 viewers

Episode 4:  384,000 viewers

Episode 5: 187,000 viewers

Payout Perspective:

This week’s episode represents almost a 50% drop in average viewership.  This is interesting considering that the controversy surrounding Tyler Manawaroa did not move the dial.  In fact, less people were interested.  This may be due in part to the Winter Olympics which earned an average viewership of 20.8 million on Wednesday night albeit the Olympic ratings were the lowest of the Sochi Games.

    Even if there was nothing on TV no one would still watch that garbage. TUF & all these little spawn aberrations don’t build any talent so why would anyone invest their time? It’s basically just crappy reality TV with crappy fights that nobody cares about.
