Ratings For Ortiz-White Special & TUF 5 Episode Two


The Ultimate Fighter 5 episode number two this past Thursday night on Spike TV scored a final cable rating of 1.3, according to Nielsen Media Research. That is slightly down from last week's 1.4, but without the UFC Fight Night as a lead-in a slight decrease isn't any big thing.

The “Countdown to Dana White vs. Tito Ortiz” special that aired following TUF 5 on Thursday night, also scored a final cable rating of 1.3. That would have to be considered a success given the late timeslot and the fact that it was a 90 minute show following an hour show, without the average dropping off at all.
