TUF 13 Finale Draws 1.8 Million Viewers On Spike TV

Despite lackluster TV ratings all season long, The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale managed to draw an audience that wasn’t too far wide of the mark compared to previous finales on Spike TV.

An average of 1.8 million viewers tuned into watch Tony Ferguson be crowned the new ‘Ultimate Fighter’, just 200,000 down on TUF 12’s finale last year.

Saturday’s show also pulled in a 1.74 rating for men aged 18-49 and a 1.95 amongst men 18-34.

Overall this season of TUF was a major disappointment on the ratings front though, and all concerned will now be hoping that next season’s coaching choices of Michael Bisping Vs Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller can generate new interest and bring back some good old fashioned rivarly and drama to the long-running series.
