Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 ratings up for episode five with 1.5 million viewers on Spike TV

via cdn0.sbnation.com

The latest ratings for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 have proven, once again, that a pissed off Brock Lesnar sells.

The numbers are in for episode five and while they're not exactly anything to write home about, they're a nice little improvement from last week and the highest of the season to date.

According to numbers released by Spike TV, the latest episode garnered a 1.1 household rating (including a 1.3 in males 18-49 and a 1.4 in males 18-34) for an average audience of 1.5 million viewers.

That's up from last weeks 0.93 rating and 1.3 million viewers.

It's a significant boost in viewership, considering the ratings so far this season have been far less than expected. Dana White recently admitted as much at the UFC 129 pre-fight press conference.

The bossman blames the timeslot, throwing Spike TV under the bus for switching the start time to an hour earlier. All may not be lost, however, if these numbers continue to climb. Will they?

Stay tuned.

Here's a look at how the numbers stack up to date:

Episode 1: 1.5 million viewers
Episode 2: 1.2 million viewers
Episode 3: 1.3 million viewers
Episode 4: 1.3 million viewers
Episode 5: 1.5 million viewers

We're halfway through the season. Five episodes down, five to go.

TUF 13 episode five saw Team Lesnar wrestle control back from Team dos Santos after Clay Harvison earned a unanimous decision win over Mick Bowman. He broke his pinky in the process, though, to the point where the bone was sticking out of the skin.

Fun fun.
