UFC on Fox 29 draws 1.78M viewers

April 15, 2018

UFC on Fox 29 drew 1.78 million viewers on Saturday according to Television By Numbers.  It is the 6th straight UFC on Fox event that failed to draw 2 million viewers.

The main event featuring Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier went on past the 7pm PT time slot so there will be additional viewers tacked on.  But, the fast overnights reflect a drop-in viewership.

The telecast drew 0.6 in the A18-49 demo and a 3 share for its time slot.  UFC on Fox 29 went up against the NHL Playoffs on NBC which drew 2.18 million viewers and identical ratings for the A18-49 demo and share.

Overall, UFC on Fox 29 had the lowest overall viewership in its time slot.

Payout Perspective:

Despite the entertaining card, the casual viewer failed to tune in once again.  The 1.78 million viewer ensures another low 2 million viewership for the event when factoring in the overrun.  While the ratings are better than the PBC on Fox, there has been a decrease over the years in these network shows.  Some of it has to do with injuries and amount of cards ongoing, and fans are starting to tune out the free shows.
