TUF 21 Episode 2: 454,000

April 30, 2015

The second episode of TUF 21 on FS1 scored just 454,000 viewers in overnight ratings per Sports TV Ratings.  It’s a slight decrease from the debut.

In the second episode, Luis “Buscape” Firmino defeated Uros Jurisic by unanimous decision in a fight that Dana White voiced his displeasure.

TUF 21 was up against the NBA Playoffs on TNT as well as a Game 7 on NBCSN in the NHL Playoffs.  The Portland/Memphis game won the night for cable TV sports with 2.937 million viewers tuning in.  The ESPN Mayweather/Pacquiao press conference which aired from 4:00-5:00 ET drew 465,000 viewers, which was just ahead of TUF per Sports TV Ratings.

TUF 21

Episode 1 – 490,000

Episode 2 – 454,000

    Another bad year for TUF and the UFC, after half a billion in investment and these pathetic numbers.
