It’s all about the fights, and Wednesday night’s Ultimate Fighter Season 14 regular season final episode TV ratings proved it.
The final regular season episode of TUF 14 drew 1.7 million viewers, according to Spike TV officials, the highest number of season 14. That was good enough to rank the episode No. 2 in the key advertiser demographics of Men 18-49 and Men 18-34, just behind FX’s American Horror Story. Ironically, The Ultimate Fighter is moving to FX in 2012.
TUF 14’s final regular season episode featured two semifinal matches, one in each weight class. John Dodson earned his birth to Saturday’s TUF 14 finale with a victory over Johnny Bedford in the bantamweight division, while Diego Brandao did away with Bryan Caraway in the featherweight class.
Dodson squares off with T.J. Dillashaw in Saturday’s finale on Spike TV. Brandao faces Dennis Bermudez in the The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale.
The reality series’ final season on Spike TV drew an average of 1.5 million viewers per episode.
