More ratings from Bellator 138

June 24, 2015

Spike TV has released Live+3 data on Bellator 138 which reveals that 1.7 million viewers watched Friday night’s event.  The Kimbo Slice-Ken Shamrock fight drew 2.8 million viewers and peaked at 2.9 million making it the most watched Bellator event ever.

Adults 18-49 drew a 1.2 rating, Men 18-49 a 1.7 rating and Men 18-34 a 1.3 rating.

In comparison, Bellator 131’s DVR numbers bumped up last November’s telecast to 1.4 million with a peak of 2.246 million viewers.

Payout Perspective:

A remarkably good showing by Bellator as the live event showing plus 2 replays drew an average of 8.9 million viewers.  It did much better than Bellator 131 although you might recall it competed with UFC 180 that night.  Without another MMA telecast to compete with, Bellator had its best night on television.  We shall see how Bellator does September 19th with its third “tent pole” event.  It will go up against a UFC card but that is a Fight Pass only event.

    Hmm..looking at this makes me feel like the PBC with Broner wasn’t that bad.

    They drew 2.38 million viewers and this great show drew 2.8 million.

    Haha. Joe, PBC was on NBC, Bellator was on Spike. The viewership isn’t even remotely comparable for both. That just goes to show how embarrassing PBC with Broner was.

    A 3.2m peak with overhead in the minimum of 7-8m range is horrible. If that number is in fact even legit, because the overnight peak was considerably less-2.56m peak. When you lose money, your event is not a success unless in the long run you eventually turn it around. Unfortunately for PBC there is no light at the end of the tunnel. There is no reason these numbers will turn around.

    Also Andre Ward’s big return landed a massive 325k avg viewers. Pathetic. PBC is a shit product with shit ratings. HAHA!
