Debut episode of TUF 10 highest rated original show in Spike history

After seeing the ratings slowly slide in the most successful mixed martial arts program on television, The Ultimate Fighter has come back with a vengeance in it’s tenth season, blasting the previous record for the highest rated original program in Spike TV history out of the water.

The highest rated episode in Ultimate Fighter captured 4.1 million viewers, besting the previous TUF high of 2.8 million viewers during the season three finale in 2006.

The news of the dramatically increased ratings for The Ultimate Fighter is great news, not only for Spike TV and the UFC, but for the sport as a whole.
