PBC on Fox Saturday night drew 880,000 viewers in fast overnight ratings per Television By Numbers.  The 2-hour event which supplemented the Fox PPV featuring Pacquiao-Thurman drew a 0.2 share in the A18-49 demo and a 2 share.

The telecast on Fox was last in overall viewership when compared to the other 3 networks of ABC, NBC and CBS.  A rerun of Shark Tank on ABC drew nearly 2 million viewers on Saturday night in the 8-9pm timeframe while a rerun on Dateline NBC drew 2.47 million viewers in the 9-10pm hour.

PBC on Fox featured Caleb Plant and Mike Lee in the feature bout of the telecast.  Plant took care of Lee in the 3rd round.

Payout Perspective:

It’s a little surprising that Saturday’s Fox event drew less than a million viewers in fast nationals despite it being a lead-in to a Pacquiao fight.  Also, Caleb Plant has been a fighter that PBC has been pushing.  He had an impressive victory yet it appears that less people tuned in.
