TUF 27 Episode 2 draws 185,000 viewers

April 26, 2018

The Ultimate Fighter season 27 episode 2 averaged just 185,000 viewers on FS1 Wednesday night.

In the fight of the episode, Brad Katona defeated Kyler Phillips by majority decision.

According to ShowBuzz Daily, it drew 0.06 in the A18-49 demo.  Last week, the debut of TUF 27 drew 200,000 viewers.

Aside from the fight, there were the usual shenanigans that a TUF episode produces.  Pranks between the coaches and a confrontation.  The prank involved pics of Stipe Miocic face in Team Cormier’s locker room.  The confrontation involved Thai Clark and Daniel Cormier exchanging words during a practice.  Cooler heads prevailed and, in the end, the two sparred and had a good laugh.

Payout Perspective:

Its looking really bad for this season of TUF.  We are seeing some really low ratings.  Granted, Wednesday included 3 NBA Playoff Games as well as a Game 7 in the NHL.  But, with the ratings lower than ever before, there’s little hope that this season will even eclipse 400,000 viewers an episode.
