TUF 4 Ratings Drop

Ratings for TUF 4 are dropping. There are a number of reasons why this is going! One is the MTV awards were on at the same night and time as episode 3 of TUF. Another reason is that people were only interested in watching UFC unleashed and decided to change the channel when it was time for TUF 4! Is TUF finally running its course or will the ratings go up again?

Ya'll knocking this season are clearly not into MMA. I bet most of you looked at the roster and didnt know more than two of the fighters. That's because if they werent on TUF 1-3, you never heard of em. This season has a chance to be the best yet. If not for the Griffin-Bonnar fight, TUF 1 woulda sucked. TUF 2 was great. TUF 3 had THEE worst fighters with the exceptions of Bisping, Herman, and Grove. All the rest sucked. Any you guys are knocking this season?

I'm pretty sure Steve-D knows more about MMA than you GI Hell so I wouldn't accuse him of being nothing more than a TUF watcher.

This season does suck, but I'm not really into any of them. I watched the first 3, and they were alright. I'm not into reality shows at all, they are the worst thing to happen to television, and I think TUF is going to ruin the UFC. But I do find myself kind of addicted sometimes haha. But I try to fight it. Last year, the only good fighter was Bisping. Anyone who thinks Kendal Grove or Ed Herman are anything more than "decent" fighters (at best), should be labeled as a meat puppet. Kendal has good camera charisma, which is why he got that RIDICULOUS decision over Ed. I think they should work their way in like everyone else without so much attention from the media. The media ruins everything, and reality shows suck ass and their are soooooo many of them it's ****in ridiculous. I am hoping for a disaster season in terms of ratings so maybe they can rethink their strategy next year and come up with something better than a reality show contest.

Oh and it just shows you accurate they are in finding the best fighters out of each season when the losers of the season do better than the winners. Basically its like the AFC and NFC, the UFC should go with PRIDEFC, and have fight season, just like football season, and both "conferences" have their fighters fight each other. Only the best, no reality show winners (unless a reality show winner fits into the "best" category). This is what they should do instead of a reality show.

I think they are dropping because the season...unlike all others has vet. fighters. People want to see the new comers w/ tallent that deserve a contract fight for it. Not the lame kids who think they can fight, and not these guys get second shots, just to be destroyed by either champ. at the finale. But I assumed Dana's plan for that sacrifice at the first eps. when I saw who was in the show......

lol oh i kenw of the fighters. I knew almost all of them. I also knew that no matter who won the finale. would only then in turn loose to the "current" title holders.

But I do agree with both GI Hell and pt447 that the major crowd did not like the sudden change is the series.
