The word of mouth about the 12th season of the “Ultimate Fighter” seems to be paying off in the ratings as the show reached it’s highest point in three episodes with an average of 1.8 million viewers for Wednesday night’s episode.
The steady climb has increased with each episode shown so far this season, and with an average household rating of 1.3, with an impressive 1.9 rating among males 18-34, the “Ultimate Fighter” appears to be on the rise.
The 12th season of the reality show features UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre opposite top contender Josh Koscheck as coaches, with lightweights filling the role as competitors this season.
Wednesday night also marked the TUF debut of former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, who made a special appearance at the request of St. Pierre, speaking to his team prior to the second elimination fight of the season.
