The following is a ratings breakdown for MMA's debut on the Versus television network:
WEC WrekCage (air-time: 8PM, highlight show) did a final cable rating of .19. The show did a .22 in the male 18-49 demo, and .34 in the male 18-34 demographic.
The live WEC fight card (Urijah Faber vs. Chance Farrar, etc.) did a final cable rating of .39, with a .43 in males 18-49 and .65 in males 18-34.
The TapouT reality show (which I enjoyed quite a bit I have to admit) did a final cable rating of .28 with a .36 in males 18-49 and .54 in males 18-34.
Overall I'd say every show can't be happy with those numbers. But hey, at least we know what the “die-hard MMA fan base” does to ratings. It's a shame too because all those shows were great shows and are getting very good reviews on the various forums and message boards.
