MMA Uncensored Live LogoSpike TV in February unveiled an independent MMA magazine show titled MMA Uncensored Live.

The show debuted to an average audience of 547,000 viewers and peaked in early May with an audience of 567,000 viewers.

That was prior to the Thursday, Sept. 6 show. Up until the most recent episode, MMA Uncensored Live could be seen weekly on Thursday nights in the 11 p.m. ET/PT hour. The Sept. 6 show, however, moved to a new timeslot, putting the show on an hour earlier at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The move also pushed up MMA Uncensored Live’s TV ratings.

The result was a series high average audience of 696,000 total viewers, according to Spike TV officials. That is a 123 percent improvement over the show’s previous best night.

The move to a more prime time slot certainly seemed to help the show’s ratings. The crossover appeal of former WWE Superstar turned mixed martial artist Dave Bautista certainly didn’t hurt either.
