UFN 15 served as a lead-in for the TUF premiere and aired live from 8-10 p.m. ET. Competing against ESPN’s telecast of Major League Baseball and ESPN2’s college football broadcast in the same time slot, UFN 15 outdrew both shows combined in the coveted young male demo.

To be exact, the Spike telecast drew 913,000 men 18-49 and 465,000 Men 18-34. By comparison, ESPN’s telecast of the Red Sox vs. Rays and ESPN2’s Louisville vs. Kansas St. college football game drew a combined 858,000 men 18-49 and 373,000 men 18-34.

Then, between 10-11 p.m. ET, TUF 8 debuted to a 1.2 household rating with an average audience of 1.6 million viewers. According to Spike, the show was number one in its timeslot on basic cable in the male 18-49 demographic, garnering a 1.5 rating. The premiere also drew a 1.5 rating in males 18-34.

Considering it's on Spike the numbers are pretty decent, but if it were like a sitcom on Fox those numbers would lead to cancelation.

I work Part time at a "charity" poker hall... I can rarely find anyone to talk MMA (UFC) with. I am glad the ratings are so good and I enjoyed the hell out of Guida- and Diaz ( whats with only 4 fights) I think that the "tuf" show has about run its course....
