The Ultimate Fighter 15 continues to find it’s hard sledding to draw significant ratings on a Friday night. After facing heavy scrutiny all season, the latest episode brought in just 821,000 viewers for this last week’s show. The episode featured two quarterfinal bouts and the live announcement of Urijah Faber-Renan Barao for the interim UFC bantamweight title.
However, none of that could help in terms of drawing in viewers. The series averaged 1.7 million viewers on Spike TV, but has not reached that number once on FX. It was the fifth time this season that the show failed to generate at least one million viewers. The top-rated episode, which was the opener, had 1.3 million with ratings declining since.
The numbers were confirmed with an industry source by MMAJunkie.
