TUF 28 debut draws 186,000 viewers

August 30, 2018

The Ultimate Fighter 28’s debut on FS1 drew 186,000 viewers on FS1 Wednesday night via Nielsen according to ShowBuzz Daily.  This season features coaches Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum and features Featherweight Women and Heavyweight male contestants.

The featured fight of the first episode saw Maurice Greene take on Przemyslaw Mysiala.  Greene took out Mysiala via KO in the first round.

The 186,000 is less than last season’s 200K debut.  TUF 26 last fall drew 308K for its debut.

Payout Perspective:

 This is the last season of TUF on FS1 and it will be interesting to see the types of changes the TUF Franchise will go through when it moves to ESPN.  Even with a robust DVR boost, this season is off to a poor-ratings start.
