The lowest ratings for the entire season of the The Ultimate Fighter: Live were recorded last Friday on its 11th episode of the season. It drew in 821,000 viewers, which is over 100,000 less than the week before, marking the least watched episode in season history.
After Dana White’s recent video on ratings, the numbers may not tell the whole story. These are still high numbers for a cable channel on a Friday night and with most of the season completed, these numbers don’t have room to go down anymore and should actually rise with the final live broadcast on FX and with the finale on June 8th.
In the last episode, two quarter-final fights took place as Vince Pichel took a decision win over Chris Saunders, and Al Iaquinta delivered a brutal TKO over Andy Ogle.
This season was still a solid first season with the new live format on a new channel for TUF, which just barely dipped below 1 million viewers.
