    says even though the initial ratings are low when you add up the dvr and replay views the show gets a million viewers per episode. Says theres still a market for this product. Says will probably move to 1 season a year instead of 2.

    1 season of tuf, 1 season of looking for a fight and 1 season of contender series per year.

    Everyone thought tuf would go away with the new tv deal. I guess not.

    Only way to rejuvenate it is to raise pot for the winners. Get some actual prospects in the house again

    The show sucks and has sucked for a long time. Nobody wants to see that old school reality show crap with all the high school kid drama.

    I can’t stand reality TV and stupid behaviour in the house. Yawn. So I don’t even watch the fights either because the whole thing is so stale. Haven’t tuned in for years.

    Maybe they should take a break at least. Just a year or so. Maybe build a little steam going again. I’ve lost track of them all but the some of the eariler ones were pretty good

    Contenders series is a much better format. I don't give a shit about 40 mins of fake drama and training just to see one fight between 2 people I don't give a shit about. It would be better if they just used the hour to show 3 fights.

    One of the few shows I actually follow

    Weird how MMA fans hate on it, you think this is like Big Brother? These are real people chasing a real dream/career and you get a little back story on their lives then you watch them fight. Yeah sometimes they go full retard and start stupid beef but that rarely happens anymore, not like that's the whole show. Then you get to see the coaches too. Yeah it's not the greatest show on TV hell maybe it's not even that good but why the hate? It's dudes fighting and you'll eventually see them fight in the UFC. Easier to become a fan of someone on a personal level when you watch the show.

    Talk shit about TUF then turn around and watch some stupid shit about alien probes and superheroes and gay dudes slaying dragons <Lmaoo>

    Fuck the reality aspect of it. Halve the series length. 2 fights per ep. Raise the finish bonus

    Hopefully ESPN will do a better job than FoxSports.
