PBC on Fox draws 880,000 viewers

April 29, 2018

PBC on Fox drew 880,000 viewers on Saturday night according to Television By Numbers.

PBC on Fox aired from 8:30-10pm and drew 0.2 in the A18-49 demo and a 1 share.  It featured Josesitio Lopez beating Miguel Cruz in the feature event.

The ratings are the second-lowest of a PBC on Fox event as it drew 866,000 viewers in July 2017.  This past October’s event drew 1.3 million viewers.  It mustered 1.06 million viewers opposite the Winter Olympics this past February.

The event went up against the NHL Playoffs featuring the Las Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks.  The game drew 1.84 million viewers.  It also went up against a rerun of American Idol which drew 2.31 million viewers and Ransom on CBS which won the 8pm hour with 2.56 million viewers overall.

Payout Perspective:

It was a combat sports-heavy night on Saturday with 3 televised boxing events and Bellator.  Not to mention a Game 7 in basketball and the aforementioned NHL Playoffs.  So, it wasn’t surprising that PBC on Fox did not draw well last night as it seemed buried among all of the sports on television.
