The ratings are in and the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Live debuted on FX on Friday night to an average audience of 1.3 million viewers, according to industry sources.

The Ultimate Fighter: Live kicked off season 15 with 16 one-round fights, aired live on FX. Each episode for the rest of the season will feature footage filmed and edited within a few days of each Friday night episode, culminating in at least one live fight each week.

pretty good numbers considering it was a Friday night, as opposed to a Wednesday, and that I assume FX is in less households than Spike...I know this to be the case in Canada

I totally forgot it was on. Not sure if I'm gonna like the new night it's on, and how the overall ratings will turn out.

I've been checked out for a while, but I DVR'd it and watched it later. I thought it was pretty damn good. Of course it was all fights (and tons of commercials). I don't know what it's going to be like in the house - I'm expecting a let down (pessimism FTW.).

But I was impressed with the quality of the fights - much more so than in some previous seasons. (sorry if this has been done/said already).

It was on a Friday night. What do they expect? Not to mention it isn't the same as the first few seasons. It was exciting then...it isn't as exciting anymore.

FX in Canada you have to pay for in an extra channel package.
SPIKE was free.

im certainly not ordering a special channel to watch a show that was pretty dumb after the 3rd or 4th season.
