Halfway through tht season, “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights” has settled into a solid ratings niche.
The series drew a network record 4.1 million viewers for the season premier, and then topped that with week three’s 5.3 million viewers (6.1 million viewers during that week’s Kimbo Slice vs. Roy Nelson bout). Six weeks into the season, the series has nestled into a comfortable three-week run of 2.8 million viewers per episode.
The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights has also performed strong in its key demographics of Men 18-34 and Men 18-49, consistently drawing top ratings in these two demographics. Episode six again put TUF above Major League Baseball’s National League Championship Series in these advertiser-coveted groups.
