TUF Live LogoThe Ultimate Fighter: Live, opening to an audience of 1.3 million viewers on FX, has struggled all season long to gain its footing.

A new home, a new night, a slightly altered format, have led the fifteenth season of the UFC’s venerable reality series to some of the lowest TV ratings in the shows history. With last week’s ratings dipping below 1 million viewers for the first time ever for the series, this week’s Episode 6 scratched and clawed its way back to 1.0 million viewers.

This season’s average isn’t much higher, with TUF: Live drawing an average 1.108 million viewers per week, halfway into the season.

UFC officials had hoped that the series’ new jive-format and the move to FX would have been a big boost for the series that found its home on Spike TV up until this year.

But despite the quickly edited for TV footage from the week leading up to each Friday night’s episode, and a live fight at the end of each show, the ratings haven’t received a boost at all. UFC president Dana White, however, has often indicated that both he and Fox officials are content with where the show’s TV ratings are at.
