TUF 16 TV Ratings Match Season High with the Snake Bite


TUF 16 Logo on BlackThe Ultimate Fighter Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson TV ratings for Friday night’s episode 8 matched this season’s high mark of 1,100,000 viewers.

That’s good news for the series, as it had struggled immensely over the past three weeks. Week 5 even hit an all-time series low of 624,000.

Scratching and clawing – or should we say biting – back up over the one million mark has to be a source of relief for UFC and FX executives, who are already gearing up for numerous changes in 2013.

While seasons 15 and 16 have floundered on Friday night’s on FX, Season 17 will emerge in January on a weeknight slot that is yet to be determined. Not only that, TUF 17 will also bring out the big guns, pitting UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones as a coach opposite the undisputed champion of the gift of gab, Chael Sonnen.

TUF 16, however, got a new shot of life itself with the improved week 7 ratings.

TUF 16 TV Ratings:

Episode 1: 947,000
Episode 2: 872,000
Episode 3: 775,000
Episode 4: 1,100,000
Episode 5: 624,000
Episode 6: 811,000
Episode 7: 676,000
Episode 8: 1,100,000
