I bet the reruns and DVR will be huge this week.
There are some weight cut penis action.
About 50,000 less viewers than the ladies' fight last week. Not bad.
I watch the show with my wife too. I say nothing, and keep waiting for her to come to the conclusion (as the entire world apparently has) that Ronda's crazy, a bitch, and is coming off terribly. But it's just the opposite - she's starting to hate Miesha Tate and always seems to root for Ronda's team member in the fights.
Well it kind of makes sense. I mean everyone has seen men's TUF fights before. Many of them aren't terribly skilled or gas out. Of course there are some good fights too. However it's kind of a "been there, done that" type of mentality.
Now you have women fighting, people are going to tune in to find out what the fuss is all about, how skilled are these women, will they be hot, etc. Anyone that's new or different will likely garner extra attention at first.
Heck, I'll even admit. I stopped watching TUF after the HW season with Roy/Kimbo on it. I think it was season 10 in 2009. I am tuning in to this season b/c the women were on it and I wanted to see what the deal was.
is it expected that FS will grow ratings/programming wise in a few years? or the feeling is that the channel is a failure? I'm not american so I cant know
FS1 is expected to challenge ESPN eventually
After DVR and repeats the episode with Kimbo vs Nelson got 7M+ so I really doubt that it's hitting anywhere near "highest numbers in TUF history".
Meltzer is a total bullshitter, has made up numbers for WWE and UFC PPV's for years.
Not at all true
He is by far the most accurate
No shock you disagree
Most networks would cancel a show with such abysmal ratings.
Most networks would cxl their highest rated show & a hit with males 18-49?
How can he not make up the PPV numbers? He has nothing to go on, he just analyzes certain trends and comes up with a number.
And as for "highest TUF ratings ever!" he's talking shit because unless DVR and repeats are doing 7 million views (unlikely) they aren't the highest ever.
Everybody in the IWC takes his "numbers" with a grain of salt and most everybody on the MMA boards does too.
He is not saying it did the highest numbers in history. He's saying it's the biggest increase percentage-wise. You should at least know what you're reading before bashing the guy.
Viewership has increased anywhere from 32 percent to 37 percent from the initial reports when you factor in people who watched the show via DVR between Thursday and Saturday. For example, the Sept. 26 show, the most recent to have DVR numbers for, did an additional 272,000 viewers of the initial airing, pushing total viewership to 1.05 million. The Ultimate Fighter has always been a strong DVR property as compared to most sports programming, but the increases have historically only been in the 15 percent range.
You might wanna go back and read what I was responding to:
"According to Dave Meltzer, the repeats & DVR are the biggest numbers in TUF history" Wouldn't imply any kind of percentage increase, instead it'd suggest these are the highest ratings, period.
I asked myself the same question. I watched the latest episodes and
thought this would be a season with women and small teenage boys.
He then said: "they are doing well over a million a week combined." A million would not be the highest numbers in TUF history. It was clear he was referring to the percentage jump, which according to Meltzer, is the biggest in TUF history.
Thanks for using your head where others run to bash without using theirs
