TUF 26 Episode 10 draws low of 158,000 viewers

November 16, 2017

TUF 26 Episode 10 drew 158,000 viewers on FS1 Wednesday night according to Nielsen.  It is the lowest-rating for the TUF series.

The show featured the final quarterfinal bouts to determine the semifinals for the inaugural UFC women’s flyweight champion.  Barb Honchak defeated Rachael Ostovich in one of the quarterfinal bouts.  In the other Nicco Montano defeated Montana Stewart.

Honchak and Montana will now meet in next week’s semifinals to determine who will fight for the title at the Finale on December 1st.

The show drew only 0.06 viewers in the A18-49 demo.

Payout Perspective:

The 158,000 viewers is the lowest-rated TUF this season and overall for a first-run episode for the series.  It was ranked 150th in cable tv ratings on Wednesday night and almost did not make the cut for reported ratings on ShowBuzz Daily as it only lists the top 150 shows on a given day.  The lead-in was college basketball which did not draw that many viewers.  An Indiana-Seton Hall matchup drew just 252,000 viewers Wednesday night before TUF.
