The second week of “The Ultimate Fighter 10” saw its ratings drop by 29 percent from its record-shattering debut last Thursday of 4.1 million viewers (2.9 household rating) on Spike TV.

However, the series still netted 2.9 million viewers (2.2 rating) and was the top-rated show in its timeslot for Men 18-34, according to a press release distributed by Spike TV Thursday.

To be expected. The numbers always taper off for the 2nd episode, since there's no UFN lead in. I'm willing to bet that the numbers jump for next week though.

I wouldn't be surprised if next weeks episode is the most watched TUF episode of all time.

I remember talking to a few non die hard mma fans and most people got pissed off with the show after that dudes cheap take down. Im sure it has a lot to do with their not being a live event but im sure that first fight turned a lot of viewers away.

I'll be surprised if it's not the most-watched episode of all time.

honestly if these heavyweight fights all look as terrible as the first two then i wont be surprised if this is the last season. especially after kimbo gets kimura'd next week. there will be no draw left in the show...
