Maybe I'm in the wrong part of the city, but not a whole lot of buzz that I'm noticing in Toronto for this weekends event.  The numbers for this weekends event should be interesting to see, but will probably be decent enough.  Expect a big rise in PPV buys to finish the year with GSP/Hendricks and Silva/Weidman.

I'll watch when Roxanne fights and then when Jessamyn fights, but other than those two, I'm not interested.

TheGFC - lol not that surprising the guys fought this week, when the girls get back in the cage should bring the ratings back up ;)


TheGFC - uh i just mentioned that the GUYS fought this week..hello! so if the dip was this week that just shows how much less pp aren't interested in the guys than females, which is exactly why wmma is blowing up so much currently..


TheGFC - Guys...it's a NEW NETWORK...there's no accurate way to calculate that it's being reviewed in most cases as the best TUF to date ALREADY, and it's just gettin warmed up. the UG always gets hypercritical about everything. calm down and wait to see how things play out. the guys fought this week..


In case anyone was wondering, "TheGFC" is Glendale Fighting Club, where Edmund Tarverdyan trains Rousey.


I'm unconvinced......if it were the Glendale fellas... instead of "Guys...it's a NEW NETWORK" it would be "BRO...it's a NEW NETWORK."

There are so many better reality TV shows on right now. Why would the average consumer settle for TUF?

<br /><br />exactamundo, because there's actual skilled fighting involved in this reality show. all the "Bad Girls Club" b*tchez are still mostly head-down windmills who can't fight worth a duck's fart, and fight over a stolen hairbrush, and STILL get the highest ratings on that network...whereas with TUF girls there's much more profound real life storylines and legit competitive heat pro fighters go thru, and with chicks who can actually get down...*much* better and why it will only continue blowing up..

Here's a conversation between two very-casual MMA fans.

#1 "So has that new TuF season started?"

#2 "Yeah, a few weeks ago."

#1 "Damn, what channel is it on?"

#2 "Hmm, good question. Either it's Fox ... or FX ... or Fox Sports ... or FS1, whatever that is. I mean last season it was on FX, I think. Or was that season 16?"

#1 "Ha ha, okay. What day/time?"

#2 "Don't even ..."

Point being that the show has moved from one network to another, moved days and moved air times. And now it's on a network that even leave UGers constantly asking "How do I watch it?"

BOOM!^...and the network launched like 10 min before the show started. it typically takes mucho time for any new network to get established. had this season debuted where everyone was already used to it airing i don't think there's any question it woulda smashed any and all previous season #s..they are literally using this show to build the new network..

also, FOX Sports 1 is a re-branding of the SPEED channel which got dumped, so there's no doubt a ton of pissed off motor sports fans boycotting on top of it. once that butt hurt all dies down should gradually gain many more viewers.

Actually there has been virtually no outcry over this.

All the google results i get negative about it are from such documented web powerhouses as awfulannouncing and sportsgrid and Bleacher Report etc.

then there is the we want speed channel Facebook page....with 23k likes. which is close to the I hate lil wayne FB with 18k.

Yes its a new network but its low initial viewership is not cause of boycotting motorsports fans.

LOL @ "it woulda smashed any and all previous season #s."  No TUF will ever top the Kimbo season numbers.

This.  Nothing would touch Kimbo season but had this season aired a few years ago on Spike or even right now on FX it would have done really, really well.    I dont think anyone can dispute that.  But yeah dont care when this aired or on what network it wouldnt do what TUF 10 did.  That had the perfect coaches, Kimbo, HW, at mma's peak.  It was the perfect TUF storm.

not to worry, fyi there are also numerous female "Kimbos" currently preparing to transition, and with a lot more base martial arts and complete training. in fact, one from Russia just bypassed TUF and already got inked, so this is just the tip of the iceberg to everything that's coming..

Rox19 - sucks that viewers went down... I wonder how they know who tuned in or not.

What are the problems with the Nielsen data?

Nielsen definitely has its critics -- probably including every fan of a TV show that was ever cancelled due to low ratings.

A fairly eloquent critique comes from analyst Arash Amel, research director for digital media with Screen Digest. Amel tells us:

"There has never been a proven method of actually measuring how many people are watching, for how long and what [they're watching]. It's all a shorthand that was created from a panel of several thousand homes, who were supposed to be indicative of 100 million television households, and to create some kind of a common ground so you could sell advertising... It's just an immense amount of guesswork, that's carried out from a very small percentage, no matter how accurately you can say that each panel member is indicitative of a certain amount of a demographic, no matter how closely you can vet that panel, you still don't know... This is just [designed] for linear broadcasting, when you used to have three channels. Now take that, multiply it by a thousand -- or how many cable channels you receive -- then throw in a DVR... All of this guesswork, over the past few decades, has basically been standardized as fact. But it's not."

well based on that i suppose we could throw all the #s out the window, although the being a new network issue pretty much does that already...
