The Ultimate Fighter 17’s ninth episode on Tuesday night drew 1,303,000 million viewers on FX.

That’s the second highest rating of the season behind the opening week which drew 1.51 million viewers and is up 210,000 viewers compared to the previous week.

In addition it also drew a 1.0 household rating along with a good 1.37 rating amongst males 18-34 and a 1.25 amongst males 18-49.

A rise at this stage of the season is definitely a good sign and with only three weeks remaining it looks like there’s a real chance the show can stay above the million mark and end on a reasonably solid footing.
