Good numbers Phone Post 3.0

tuf will never get back to a million plus while it's on fs1.  A sports network requires destination programming (live content)...  taped content will not do as well on a network like fs1 compared to a general entertainment network like FX.

Tuf USA should move to 1 season a year and air on either FX or big fox.  You can air the international tufs on fs1 and fs2.

Lol pretty average for a Wednesday UFC event with no huge headliner and most the good fights on prelims Phone Post 3.0

the difference is fightmaster was doing half spikes primetime average whereas tuf is doing more than double fs1's primetime average.... And that's why fightmaster was cancelled whereas tuf is being replayed all over fs1 and fs2.

 

That main event definitely didn't help matters, a total momentum killer, which I would imagine is the opposite of what they (FOX and the UFC) were going for. I think the TUF numbers will improve, but by how much is anyone's guess. They should put that first episode up on the FOX and UFC websites for free, the way CNN does for shows like "Parts Unknown".

That really sucks I thought everyone would have tuned in to watch Bisbing he usually attracts more attention. Big bummer Phone Post 3.0

lol @ airing on fox

isn't overnights usually not the final numbers?

TUF is played out. The only reason it's still on FS1 is because they lack content. Give it time, it will die soon enough. UFC is doing everything in their power to milk it before it does.

why?  if Fox buys zuffa out of the ppv business and eventually becomes one of the main beneficiaries of the big fights like jones vs gus 2, anderson vs weidman 2, etc... it would be worth it for them to air 1 season of tuf a year on big fox... or at a minimum back to fx.  It would definately be worth the investment.



right now though fox would rather get 595k viewers on fs1 with tuf than twice that on FX or even 3 times that on fox.... but that may not always be the case especially if the deal gets reworked.

No it won't be worth it for them.

TUF is old, and was only ever huge for like 1-2 seasons.

Why do you think Fox keeps moving it to shittier channels..

Major League Baseball averaged 400k viewers when it debuted on fs1 a week ago...

Just like I said: Ronda crippled the TUF brand, TUF: Nations killed it.  Good thing they are putting Pettis on the shelf for 7 months for that garbage.

Wow, doesn't the first episode of a TUF show usually do well in the ratings? I was thinking 800k viewers at least. Phone Post 3.0


But how many viewers did COPS do?
