FOX 6 ratings triple competition in key demo


Nearly 3.78 million viewers (3.7766 to be exact) on average watched the two-hour long broadcast that featured Johnson vs. Dodson in the main event, as well as the farewell fight for Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as he lost to Glover Teixeira in what should likely be his last trip to the Octagon.

The ratings signify a 13-percent increase from the numbers returned for the UFC on Fox 5 card in December.

Now these initial numbers are only preliminary, and if anything represent a smaller segment of what will surely be a bigger viewing audience once the final reports come in from the Nielsen ratings system on Monday or Tuesday.

UFC on FOX 6 also killed the competition in the coveted 18-49 market, which is seen as the key group for advertisers. With a 1.8 share, UFC on Fox 6 nearly tripled its closest competitor, and while NCIS on CBS at 8pm just slightly beat the show in total viewers, that particular program is comprised mostly of watchers 50 years old and up.

It just makes sense... They're really getting the production dialed in. The Monday Night Football theme music they use for UFC on Fox is just awesome. The UFC is only getting more popular.Nobody would touch Married With Children, until Fox picked them up. They've always been the network that places that smart bet.

The UFC is the biggest promotion in the world. Those that don't like that need to get over themselves.

The show averaged a little more then half of the TNA's audience.The show did not build upon the first episode.What will you cheer for after Bellator goes out of business in a few years?Will you actually convert to the UFC fan? Or is that too cool for you?

How did there 2nd show do bad numbers? Of course a drop off from a season opener, the numbers were fine and higher than people thought the first show would do

Yeah, I'm clearly hugging Zuffa's nuts because Bellator's 2nd show did shitty numbers. That really makes a lot of sense. Moran.
