  1. Scotty says:

    Million viewers on a Friday night isn’t bad.. Still think they should change it to either Sunday night or Wednesday night..

  2. true mma says:

    Nobody wants to see that dumb ass Cruz.

  3. EBM FTW says:

    There is not enough drama in the house. I stopped watching since episode 3. Because of the live fights, I believe they made the show “too real”.

  4. Kk says:

    The ratings are so low because people arent gona sit around til 10 o’clock at night on a friday just to watch a tv show. They definetly need to have it between sun-thurs.

    • Rollin Thundar says:

      thursday night would be good. kinda sucks on a friday night since i have to watch it till 10 then get dressed to go to the bar/club

  5. Eric says:

    I watched half of the first episode then stopped watching it and haven’t seen an episode since. Also I have no interest in reading subtitles for Brazil either. I find myself wanting to see Ultimate Fighter but I wont watch either of these versions out right now. I have watched every episode of each season in the past but this live format does not do it for me at all.

  6. Clay says:

    DVR this shit everybody cmon

  7. Bear says:

    Friday nights suck, and it just isnt exciting enough to make me want to DVR it.

  8. Kalab says:

    2 my friends from my gym are on there and I only tuned in to watch Sam Sicilia and mike Chiesa fight… And it’s DVR’d… Its just the same thing every season…

  9. Mr. Nuggets says:

    Wed night @ 9….PERFECT! Fri’s @ 10 is brutal, plus…they need more female fighters visit! They do need to mix it up

  10. Yea I agree that Friday is a horrible time for the show. The fact that they choose to air it at ten is because WWE Smackdown is off at 10pm. If they are afraid to compete with the WWE then make it on a Sunday night at 8pm. Perfect time.

  11. Dick Diaz says:

    didn’t MMAMania just have an article today about how riveted Dana White is with the ratings? lol…

  12. Paul Harris says:

    Joe San Do

  13. john says:

    I miss the old ultimate fighter series where we see the fighters grow
