So i just went and watched Episode 3 of TUF Redemption... No, I didn't watch it on my cable TV box, or DVR it or anything. I went to a website and watched it... like I always do. The reason that I watch it online is simple... The adverts are removed. The one I watched showed a combined 38 minutes of footage over 3 videos. When this show is on TV, it is an hour and change (1 or 2 minutes over). The poor TUF ratings are a DIRECT result of over-saturation of the show with advertising. Now I'm not sure if this is the fault of the UFC, or the network that airs the show, or BOTH??? But whatever the reason being, they are shooting themselves in the foot. Me and a bunch of guys I shoot assault rifles and go ATV'ing with were all talking the other day at the shooting range we had set up.. We drive our ATV's deep into a part of my property where we have a real nice range set up. There was 9 of us there, and 5 of us are currently watching this season of TUF, which is HUGE compared to all o their last seasons. The show pretty much fell by the wayside and off the radar of even the biggest MMA fans... out of the 5 of us, 4 out of the 5 of us admitted to watching it online and we ALL cited the same reason... It feels like there is a commercial every 5 minutes on the show. And that is portrayed by them packing a sub 40 minute show into over an hour of programming. I'd say a couple 2-3 minute sessions would be plenty of advertising for one show, but when greed sets in, they want you to watch as much adverts as programming, and at that point, they should really be paying us for broadcasting their shows in our residence. Not vice versa. I really feel that this could be key to why their ratings have slipped so, because this eason really is good, and a lot of people seem to be watching it... for it to have the lowest ratings ever just dont seem to make sense... unless everyone is following this same path. Anyone else find they are having the same experiences?? watching the show online to avoid the over saturation of advertising?? Any other reasons you guys think this could be going on?
