The fifth episode of ‘The Ultimate Fighter 17’ drew an average of 1.13 million viewers on FX this past Tuesday night.

That’s the lowest of the season so far, down 60,000 viewers for the previous low during the third episode.

On the bright side, the show still produced a strong 1.45 rating in males 18-34 and a 1.17 rating amongst males 18-49 which are the key demographics as far as FOX is concerned.

That helps, but to maintain this favorable Tuesday night slot on the FX schedule it’s important that the show keeps it’s head above the million mark for the remainder of the season.
