The ninth episode of Fight Master: Bellator MMA debuted last night in its new post Impact Wrestling time slot on Spike TV again and the reality show was looking to keep up the ratings increases.
Thursday night’s episode landed at 539k total viewers according to Nielson sources, compared to 595k total viewers from the previous week.
The lead-in show of Impact Wrestling, which featured the return of the Phenomenal AJ Styles, Rampage and Tito Ortiz hit 1.2 million total viewers.
When it came to the rest of competition in the top-100 cable charts Fight Master also went against some NFL preseason football, which also skewed a lot of ratings and preempted a ton of the national networks like ABC and CBS. The NFL’s national game garnered a rating of 1.5.
We will have an updated Bellator ratings chart once the live+3 information becomes available. So as always, stay tuned for more detailed ratings analysis on TheMMAReport.com
