FOX is clearly all in when it comes to working with the UFC, but now that they decided The Ultimate Fighter is moving to Tuesday nights, the UFC and the network seem to be more focused on the move than the actual numbers of this season. High numbers would be great for selling advertising, but the last episode of series numbers fell 16%. The series finale netted just 678,000 viewers according to industry sources, and that’s down nearly 200,000 from the week prior.
The UFC’s reality competition drew 678,000 viewers on FX, down 16 percent from the 804,000 who tuned in for the debut of episode No. 11 the week prior. Industry sources confirmed the ratings information Monday.
The show concludes this weekend on FX for The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.
