Bellator put on its first Friday night show of season nine on Spike TV this past weekend to increased DVR numbers.

Bellator 99 #2

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.
