MMAPayout.com has learned that The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 Episode 5 did a 1.1 household rating and 1.4 million viewers. After a series low .8, TUF recovered strongly doing a 1.4 on last week fueled by the antics of Junie Browning. The number for this week seems to have settled back into the 1.1-1.2 range that marked the first couple of episodes of the season.
Looks like drama fuels ratings. I guess it was a great idea for the UFC to put a years supply of liquor in the house. Correction: TUF 8 Episode 5 Rating : MMAPayout.com: The Business of MMA
