The ratings are in and Bellator's Spike TV debut featuring two title fights drew 938,000 viewers, a very strong showing.

Not bad, but not even in the ballpark of the UFC's first live show on Spike.

Shit, eh. Good for them

I thought they put on a great card. I saw a lot of bitching about it on other forums. I don't understand why but some people are born to piss and moan.

They still have some casual carryovers that haven't figured out the old switcheroo yet. Time will tell if this number is an accurate representation of Bellator viewers. Keep in mind that Spike counter-programming did similar numbers with UFC reruns when Fox had live fights. It'll probably be the end of the 2013 before we really know where both companies stand with ratings.
