I think the marketing during the playoffs helped out a lot. As well as Conor being the draw that he is.
Not crazy about staying up until 6AM+ on a work night.
Damn bro, where do you live?
Currently in Norway.
Watching pre-recorded fights just isn't the same
Here in Brazil we had to stay wake till fucking 3:40AM... I am at work now and my head is about to explode...
So connor does less views than nate does when he headlines tv cards.... But he is not considered a needle mover? However, pretty good numbers for connor he is fun to watch.
It's not hard to understand: The playoffs had huge viewings from sports fans. Those same fans kept watching TV. Some turned to the fights.
In the preview on my site on Thursday I quoted almost the exact rating that the show looks like it ended up doing. 1.7 should translate to between 1.9 and 2.1 million viewers. This was from my preview article:
Fuck them, what about Pixelated's needs?
If it was that simple, you'd hope more people would've grasped that concept going INTO Sunday's event.
According to others: it's expected to be about 2.4 million viewers or so.
Nate headlined a TUF finale against a former title challenger that did 1.1 million viewers.
1.7 > 1.1
Oh the plight of being an international sports fan. I used to stay up watching dream and sengoku cards in Japan. Definitely not the healthiest of ways to manage sleep.
As far as pre-recorded events. I actually think it's the best. That way I can fast forward through all commercials and redundant spectacles of the sport. Just gotta stay away from media that covers the event.
Its sherdog, there re a lot of idiots.
And FOX had a HUGE push during the Seahawks game.
Some did. But it was pushed out of the front-page of threads via the general insanity of sherdog :icon_lol:
Depends on the viewers per home. Point was that I did predict it to do the biggest number for FS 1 and I'm not at all surprised that it did.
I'm a little disappointed that I didn't have more confidence in my own numbers and qualified it by saying that it would likely be a little down from what it should do because of football. But at the time I didn't know about all the commercials they'd be running or the shoulder programming Conor was doing on Saturday. My predictions are almost always within 10% of the actual number.
UFC is ded
FOX/1.5 (approx.) = FS 1
Nate's 2.5 million on FOX is roughly the same as 1.67 million on FS 1.
But FOX generally gets better overall cards, although this one was definitely a "FOX quality" card. If this show did 2.4 million viewers on FS 1, I'd guess it would've been 3.5-4 million on FOX.
