TUF 11: Episode 8 ratings lowest of season

source: mmajunkie.com

With the NBA and NHL playoffs in full swing, the eighth episode of "The Ultimate Fighter 11" took a dip in ratings and was the least-viewed episode of the season.

Despite the dropoff, this week's new installment of the Spike TV reality series, which hosted the season's historic wild-card fight and first quarterfinal bout, still drew an impressive 1.0 household rating and an average audience of 1.3 million viewers, officials today announced.

Among basic cable stations, the show ranked second in its timeslot with men 18-49 and men 18-34, trailing only the NBA playoff game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Phoenix Suns, which drew a whopping 7 million viewers.

The show earned a 1.54 in the M18-34 and a 1.2 in the M18-49.
Quarterly hours: .91, .92, 1.05, 1.02

Payout Perspective:

This was the 1.0 drop that I had anticipated coming a little earlier in the season;  it’ll be interesting to see if the ratings bounce back. However, even if the show draws a 1.0 in the next three straight episodes it’ll still end up in the top-five TUF seasons in terms of HH rating averages.

this season sucks talent wise, also the fights aren't that exciting. the UFC should have just had tito and chuck talk shit to each other the whole episode to draw in more ratings.

show is in its 11th season. It is stale and without interesting charactors people wont tune in. Last season there was the Kimbo factor.Revamping it will be hard to do now as the show has a formula that worked for a few seasons. Today though reality tv is on its way out so they might need to do a weekly fights type show but problem being ufc isnt wwf and have fights every week.
