Within 100k viewers of some of the ratings that TUF 16 drew. I don't think they're at any more risk of being cancelled than TUF is.


TUF 16 was considered a disaster and convinced Fox to move it off Fridays.

If they can get the numbers up to 700k, I think it would be seen as ok. The problem with these numbers is that it was hoped the show could help Bellator increase it's overall audience and create new stars like early TUF shows did. With audiences this small, it will have very little impact on the visibility of the company.

Stipe - Those numbers actually seem pretty good to me.
Spike could beat those numbers with reruns of anything.

How can you spin 550,000 people watching at that time on a channel that over 90 million get? Phone Post

 

yep... spike averaged 700k viewers last week airing mostly reruns.  550k viewers on primetime wednesday night is aweful. 

There's nothing else on TV except reruns.  550k for a first run program is atrocious.

That's not at all how it happened. Fox was fine with those numbers because it was on a difficult night for original programming. The reason it was moved was because Zuffa was unhappy with the numbers and wanted a better spot.

I watched a couple of episodes recently. The show is decent so far. I'm curious to see hoe it looks once everyone is in a camp and has started the tournament.

That said, I feel conflicted. The show is good enough to watch, but I kind-of don't want to support Bellator due to how shady they're being with Eddie Alvarez.

I'll probably catch an episode here and there if I happen upon it, but I'm not going to be a regular viewer, for certain. It makes me sick the way Alvarez is being screwed.

and that was considered an absolute disaster and a complete flop when they were doing 650k, people were calling for the show to be killed at that point.

So how is doing 100k less than that good?  Also they bounced back cause TUF is a proven show that has 17 seasons under its belt and a fanbase.  Fight Master doesnt have that.

Major pet peeve is edited fights. Not sure if that was just for episode 1 or all of it. missed the 2nd one.....



I refused to keep watching Best of Pride back in 07-08 because they cut out half the fight. Same goes for The Contender boxing show. What a joke, the fight cut down to a few minutes with meat slapping sound effects. Even the last TUF had an odd cam effect that made me bail on the whole season.

and another thing.....you have to be a real a-hole to think that Iron Ring wasn't the best mma tv show of all time. That's the gold standard.

Bellator Fan - It's a better show than TUF Phone Post 3.0

Its a very similar show to TUF it just has 4 coaches instead of two, isntead of Jones/Sonnen or Rashad/Page bickering at each other you have Frank and Warren with Randy and Jackson doing it.

Other than that the show is basically the same.  It comes down to what you like, I think the way TUF 17 was is better than this but the real show hasnt started yet.  Thats where we will see how much different it is.

Right now its the same, cage in a warehouse/gym, fighters fight to get into the house, coaches evaluate, they live and train together, fighters fight at the end for a contract/tournament spot.

I recall Meltzer talking about the lowest numbers of 16 had Fox agreeing with the UFC that it was being hurt by the night.

They had, prior to season 16, agreed to look at moving it to another night if things did not improve. But in season 16, both sides were concerned with the lowest of the lows.

I think that's what Dana wanted everyone to believe because he didnt want it to seem like a failure.  What was true though is that FX didnt really care because they were just a placeholder until FS1 launched.  

But during tuf 16 I think even Fox realized this franchise could get killed off in the friday night timeslot before fs1 even launches.

More importantly, Tuf was on a friday night.  while Fightmaster is on the historical best timeslot for an mma reality show.  Byork must be waking up in cold sweats regarding the friday night move.

I actually thought they would do more than the live events since it fits in with Spikes reality programming.

But they messed up not putting it on Thurs after TNA to keep viewers.

I figured atlesat 700-800k a week.

Bellator Fan - MMALOGIC's "dead in 2 years" guarantee was a complete flop and his "no 2nd season" prediction will be more of the same. Phone Post 3.0

If you're so sure you should take MMALOGIC up on his bet. This is probably just one of your accounts anyways right?
