Last weeks Bellator 90, which preliminary number bounced back from the previous weeks low, once again saw an overall increase of roughly 7% overall.

This rise brought the show to a grand viewership total of 791k thanks to the live + 3 (DVR) numbers that were released today. This weeks show also drew 0.7 – HH rating and a 0.6 in the M18-49 demographic, which are pretty consistent overall this season.

This increase also brings the season eight total viewership average (with DVR) down to 851k total live + 3 (DVR).  However, it should be noted that overall household rating for the season remains at .70.

As a reminder, this adjustments was due to the live + 3 (DVR) numbers which will be released every Tuesday. For those new to Nielsen ratings terminology, live + 3 is a equal to a total of live viewership plus 3 days worth of DVR usage.
