LAS VEGAS – While officials say they’re satisfied with the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter: Live” on FX, changes are on the way.
This season of the UFC’s long-running reality series is the first on FX (after seven years and 14 seasons on Spike TV) and the first to feature live fights.
While UFC president Dana White believes many folks have painted a far-too-bleak picture of “TUF: Live,” he told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) some changes are going to be made for future seasons.
“TUF: Live” has recorded the lowest ratings in series history, and episode No. 5 bottomed out with an all-time-low 947,000 viewers earlier this month. But in key demographics, the show continues to be among cable’s highest-rated Friday-night programs. But White echoed comments he made to the “Orange County Register” earlier this week that the show isn’t doing as well as he personally wants.
“It’s not that I’m not happy,” he told MMAjunkie.com. “I said it’s a home run for them … since they’re dominating Friday nights with 18- to 34-year-old males. It’s not the best position for me, though.”
