Dana White confirms Ultimate Fighter's return to Wednesdays in 2013   [View Full Version]
DrivenDavies15 » Posted 8/10/11 1:23:00AM

The 17th season of Ultimate Fighter, which is currently being filmed in Las Vegas with Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen as coaches, is expected to air on Wednesday nights, starting in January on FX.

The show moving to a better night was announced by FX Executive Vice President Chuck Safler back in October. Malki Kawa, the manager of Jones, said the move would be to Wednesday in an interview with The Fight Network. Subsequently, MMAFighting.com confirmed the new date with Dana White.

In doing so, the show is moving back to the night it ran on Spike for many years. The show moved to Fridays at the start of 2012, with the move from Spike TV to FX. Even though moving to a significantly higher rated network, and having the fights air live for the first time in the show's history, ratings fell to the lowest level in the show's history.

I'm not a big fan of this idea I prefer my MMA on a Friday or the weekend, but I'll watch regardless.

I would only do it during June through August though, as there are two many shows to compete with during the week, the summer months pretty much are showing reruns.
