The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale pulls in a reported 1.7 million viewers on FX

Quote:
The ratings are in for last Saturday's TUF 17 Finale from Las Vegas, and they look quite impressive. The FX broadcast reportedly pulled in a little over 1.7 million viewers. MMA Junkie's John Morgan tweeted out the news earlier today:



These numbers are consistent with the uptick in UFC on FX ratings. UFC on FX 7 in January nearly reached 2 million viewers and stands as the the highest rated UFC broadcast on the channel. The TUF 15 and TUF 16 live finales, both broadcast on a Saturday night 9 PM timeslot, averaged 1.0 and 1.3 million viewers respectively.

Morgan also reported that the card also was the highest rated cable program among 18-49 male viewers. There was definitely some interest leading to this event, particularly the Uriah Hall hype as well as the #1 contender fight between Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano. It would've been interesting to see how the ratings would've fared had the original main event of Demetrious Johnson and John Moraga not been scrapped due to Johnson's injury.

TUF 18, coached by Cat Zingano and Ronda Rousey, airs on Wednesday, September 4th at 10 PM ET on the new Fox Sports 1 channel.

Good news for the UFC! I expect the Bones-Sonnen PPV to do really well as a result.

Thanks for the info guys and gal. I was hoping the ladies would get fight of the night, they sure set the example for the guys. I'm sure they have chips on their shoulders, but they showed that you can have exciting wrestling and stand-up as opposed to lay and pray and wait for the bell, that has become more prevalent it seems.
