FX exec: TUF moving to another night
Today on a media call to announce the casting of Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen as coaches for the next Ultimate Fighter, an executive from the FX network, Chuck Safter, revealed that the show will move to another day of the week.
The show has been broadcast on Fridays for the first two seasons on FX, but ratings have been lower than expected. The actual new day the show will broadcast is expected to be announced in the next thirty to forty-five days.
Safter warned that Spike better ‘watch it’s ass’ and they expect good ratings for the best casted TUF ever. It is likely that a better time slot and the casting of Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen will most certainly increase the ratings.
