    Dana White confirms Ultimate Fighter's return to Wednesdays in 2013

    After declining ratings this past year, FX will be moving The Ultimate Fighter reality show back to Wednesday nights, where the show aired for many years on Spike TV.
    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 Saftler 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.

    ...but seriously you guyz, it was doing fuckin' great on Fridays. No concerns at all with viewership and numbers and fuckin' shit like that.

    You only program shows for Friday nights that women will watch with ice cream on hand.

    TUF is not one of those shows.

    if it does or doesn't drama. If it goes to Wednesday great watch both at same time only ten minutes I care to watch of TUF anyhow. Fridays conflicted with boys football and ect.. plus it was getting monotonous no desire to watch any more for me.
