Bellator put on its first Friday night show of season nine on Spike TV this past weekend to increased DVR numbers.
According to Nielsen sources, Bellator 99’s preliminary viewership number landed at 660,000 total viewers and has since increased 6% to 704,000 total viewers thanks to the live+3 DVR numbers.
Now, 6% isn’t exactly a huge number, but between this jump and the cumulative numbers from last week it is safe to say well over 1 million people witnessed at least a part of Bellator 99.
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.
