Want to hear a positive spin on this ultimate fighter is beat by seinfeld, killed by spongebob

spongebob 18-49 rating .5 ultimate fighter .4

2.53 million people watch spongebob three times the amount of the ultimate fighter

Friends killed ultimate fighter at 1.5 million, which wouldnt have been to bad if it was 1997.  Yep ten year old reruns that have show hundred times kill the ultimate figher.

But have no fear UFC is going to move this show to be the lowest rating show on tuesdays lol.

 

Question is how is this show still on the air?

ouch. They need to go back on Spike. Granted I wasn't a huge fan, but I frequently saw it on and watched a few episodes. Now I couldn't even tell you what channel it is on.

LOL I see the ads for it, I just can't even be bothered to set the DVR. The UFC doesn't need TUF anymore, time to let it die IMO.

LOL actually, if I remember right, this was the only season he DIDN'T say that!

He was privy to the taping of the show, so he knew it would be an abortion beforehand.

Yeah, Dana knew this one was brutal. Nelson not interested and no stand out fighters.

No one wanted to bang, bro. Phone Post

as horrendous as the ratings are FX is moving it to the highest rated night on their network.  tuesday nights are FX's best nights with sons of anarchy and justified.

they wont have any excuses this time. but really all they need to do is go back to the averages they had on spike (around 1.3 million which they shouldeasily do with the new timeslot)  and the numbers will be good enough for fx.... so I suspect tuf will be around for while.... unless the friday timeslot and move to fx completely killed the franchise beyond repair.

I foresee tuf morphing into a 4 man tournament where every week you see 4 of the best prospects fight in a tournament to see who wins a UFC contract with all 3 fights airing in a 60 minute taped episode.  this is the future of tuf in my opinion.

IF you want a Global Tuf Grand Prix then you make it an 8 man tournament taped and aired as a 2 hour episode.  An 8 man grand prix product could work globally thereby eliminating the need for a tuf brazil, tuf canada, tuf japan, etc...

forget the olympics... if we had a 2 hour tuf world grand prix every week it would be a blockbuster.

Don't worry, Dana said the next season is the best season ever (for the 16th time), and some crazy shit is going to happen. TUF is as played out as Von Dutch trucker caps. It's mad mid 00s. It'll never get it's cool factor back.
