Glory Ratings on Spike TV:
When you look back to the debut of Glory on Spike TV, the 381,000 viewers was something you would expect in the US, which has never been to high on kickboxing as some other parts of the world are. Since the debut, it has steadily increased it’s ratings on Spike TV for each following show.
Saturday nights show finally ended that trend as the show was a -25% from Glory 13 but +23% increase since it’s debut. Even though the show did not do the number previously reported, Glory 14 still ranked as the second most watched event on Spike TV, only trailing the previous Glory 13 event. Glory and Spike TV should be more than thrilled with the ratings so far and with the decision to carry kickboxing on the American network.
