    Yet I thought this episode was the best of the season (despite having Ronda in it). First fight was quick but exciting, second was an absolute war and one of the best TUF fights in recent years.

    This is manufactured news. the ratings have been really consistent all year, and this week’s ratings are on par with weeks 5, 6 and 8. It’s been a very gradual and normal decrease and has really maintained a plateau. Hardly news.

    Big spring break week for their target demo

    It was Rousey that brought the views down

    • MackCram

      I bet next seasons numbers will be even lower, nobody wants to see that crap

        Doesn’t matter to Dana, needs his girl to be close to him as can be.

          They should keep the girls where they belong…as ring girls
          What a stupid Idea to have guy and girl fighters in the same house.. It’s going to focus on the drama and conflicts more than the fighters trying to make it
          My opinion
          I agree, nobody wants to watch that crap

  • If that idiot Rousey was in the episode, it’s another reason I’m glad I’m not watching this show anymore.
