TUF Live TV Ratings Remain Flat Through Week 10


The Ultimate Fighter Live (TUF Live)Even with two quarterfinal bouts on the same night, The Ultimate Fighter: Live is still stuck in its TV ratings rut.

Episode 10 of the series pulled in 948,000 viewers, according to MMAWeekly.com’s industry sources.

That’s right in line with what the show has been pulling since mid-season. TUF: Live is currently averaging 1.048 million viewers per episode, and that’s only because the first four episodes pulled in slightly over one million per show.

The quarterfinal round of the season 15 lightweight tournament got underway on Friday night with Team Faber’s Mike Chiesa and Team Cruz’s James Vick winning their respective bouts, moving into the semifinal round.

The semifinal round takes place on May 25 on FX, followed by the TUF: Live finale on June 1.

UFC president Dana White has maintained that they will continue to tweak the show, as he hasn’t been pleased with the ratings it has drawn on FX. Fox executives, however, insist that they are happy with the show’s Friday night performance, particularly in their key advertising demographics.
