    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.

    Currently in Norway.
    Watching pre-recorded fights just isn't the same

    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:

    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.

    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.

    More like:

    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.
