The Ultimate Fighter Live On FX Episode 6 Ratings Report


By Lynn Mitchell:
There was a slight climb in ratings for the sixth episode of The Ultimate Fighter producing 1 million viewers.  Episode 6 is when Team Faber took its first lead of the season.  Joe Proctor submits Team Cruz’s Chris Tickle in the first-round making the series 3-2.

The deal with FOX caused the series to move from SpikeTV to FX.  It didn’t help the ratings when Spike TV decided to run past episodes calling it “Ultimate Fighter Fridays”.  The prior seasons with SpikeTV – TUF was taped and edited to its entirety before the season even began.  This season the episodes are taped and edited during the week followed by a live fight.

Episode 1: 1.3 million viewers
Episode 2: 1.1 million viewers
Episode 3: 1.2 million viewers
Episode 4: 1.1 million viewers
Episode 5: 947,000 viewers
Episode 6: 1 million viewers
