TUF 13 Ratings Holding Steady; Episode 3 Draws 1.3 Million Viewers

TUF 13 LogoEpisode 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter: Team Lesnar vs. Team dos Santos” pulled in an average audience of 1.3 million viewers, according to Spike TV officials.

The numbers were strong enough to put TUF 13 in the number one position among basic cable networks in the 9-10 p.m. timeslot in the key advertiser demographics of Men 18-49 and Men 18-34.

Three weeks into the season and TUF 13 has averaged 1.33 million viewers per episode, which is down slightly from Season 12’s season average of 1.7 million viewers per episode, though the show is barely a quarter of the way into this season.

There really haven’t been too many dramatic episodes in the first three episodes, though things are starting to heat up amongst Team dos Santos’ coaching staff, and some of Team Lesnar’s fighters are starting to question Brock Lesnar’s tag line of turning his fighters from “chicken (expletive) into chicken salad.”
