Nine Weeks In, Are the TUF 17 TV Ratings Headed for a Big Finish?


Jon Jones vs Chael Sonnen TUF 17Are The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen TV ratings headed for a big finish?

We’ll have to wait for the next three weeks of TV ratings returns to find out, but week nine definitely took a turn to the upside.

Episode nine drew 1.3 million viewers, according to TVbytheNumbers.com. That matches the second-best mark of the season, which was set in week two. Only the season premier, at 1.51 million viewers, set a stronger mark.

TUF 17 has three weeks to go before the finale, but we’re now into the home stretch with quarterfinal and semifinal bouts on tap, so a strong return in TV ratings wouldn’t be unexpected.

TUF 17 TV Ratings:

Week 1: 1.51 million viewers
Week 2: 1.30 million viewers
Week 3: 1.20 million viewers
Week 4: 1.25 million viewers
Week 5: 1.13 million viewers
Week 6: 1.14 million viewers
Week 7: 1.26 million viewers
Week 8: 1.12 million viewers
Week 9: 1.30 million viewers
