According to a Nielsen source, Bellator 96’s preliminary number did not crack the Nielsen top-100 cable shows for the night and landed at roughly 480k total viewers.

The updated number which now includes the DVR number brings the show up roughly 10% to 526k total viewers.  Keeping it inline with Fight Masters 13% increase for the same night.

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.
