UFC 145 Primetime and TUF: Live Ratings Were Strong this Week


The final episode of the three-part UFC 145 Primetime show pulled in the highest ratings yet for this latest installment, generating an audience of 646,000.

The UFC 145 Primetime debut episode drew 462,000 viewers and the second episode 573,000, showing a steady increase in viewership over the miniseries' three-week run.

The show, which aired on FX, followed UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and challenger Rashad Evans as they prepared to face one another in the main event of UFC 145. The two met in the cage this past Saturday, April 21, with Jones picking up a unanimous decision over his former training partner.

Episode seven of The Ultimate Fighter: Live averaged one million viewers, tying the mark hit by episode six. Despite featuring a new format on a new network, this season of TUF has been something of a ratings disappointment, with episode five setting a record for the lowest numbers ever pulled in by the long-running reality show.
