If TUF was looking like a jumper two weeks ago, I think it’s safe to say it’s been pulled back from the ledge with this news:
MMAPayout.com has learned that The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 Episode 5 did a 1.4 household rating and 1.1 million viewers. After a series low .8, TUF has followed up with back to back 1.4’s, signaling a strong recovery for the reality franchise.
That’s the second week in a row that it’s pulled this rating, and it’s a strong rating indeed. I don’t know what was in the water the week the show did a 0.8, but whatever it was seems to have gone away.
