Bellator’s tenth live show on Spike TV last week once again scored improved live + 3 (DVR) numbers.
Last weeks Bellator 94, which combined number (live + replay) was well within the norm, had a DVR increase of about 7%.
This rise brought the show to a grand viewership total of 764k thanks to the live + 3 (DVR) numbers that were released today.
This increase also brings the season eight total viewership average (with DVR) down further to roughly 840k total live + 3 (DVR). It should also be noted that the overall average household rating for the season is below 0.6 now.
Last weeks Bellator also went head-to-head with the 2013 NCAA Basketball tournament which once again scored huge ratings victory for the CBS family of networks. Again, this should not come as a shock, but needs to be taken into account when reviewing the week-to-week comparison chart below.
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.
