i'd say its more Important for people to watch it Live on CBS, The number that they draw will give us an Idea of where MMA is in the mainstream, but they draw low number than CBS wont want them anymore and would set MMA back as its trying to break into mainstream, but if they draw Big Number, than CBS will push for more shows, and it will be much easier for the UFC/mma to land on network TV since they now know it will draw big.
I agree 100%, but TV ratings are still based on a small sample from what I konw. So Im guessing there is either 1 or zero people who use this site who also are part of the TV ratings sample group. So when I watch TV, they dont know what channel Im watching.
Since I dont have any impact on TV ratings, I can only help MMA grow by going to shows and buying PPV's, dvd's or gear. Im not saying people should give over their life savings - just be aware that by spending money and showing up can help the sport u love grow more. I buy PPV's but outside that I havent seen more than 1 IFL show. Im going out to Elite XC so I can see a good show and they can hopefully have a good crowd to make the TV show more exciting.
