The final ‘normal’ episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Live drew 875,000 viewers on FX this past Friday night.

That’s up from last week’s all-time low of 821,000, but is still fairly dire by TUF standards and means that half of the season’s episodes have failed to even get beyond the one million barrier.

In recent weeks UFC president Dana White has been defending the ratings while claiming that it would remain in it’s current Friday night slot for the next season, but following it’s latest episode he told reporters that changes would be made and that he wanted to change it to a different night of the week, though that may be easier said than done given FX’s packed schedule.

He’ll no doubt be hoping that this Friday night’s TUF: Live finale will deliver much improved ratings with a full fight card that will end with the new ‘Ultimate Fighter’ being crowned along with a higher profile Jake Ellenberger Vs Martin Kampmann main event.
