Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 ratings tie series low with 1 million viewers for episode nine on Spike TV

via cdn2.sbnation.com

Well, at least it's almost over.

The ratings are in for episode nine of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 and they aren't pretty. According to numbers released today by Spike TV, the latest episode garnered a 0.9 household rating (including a 1.0 in males 18-49 and a 0.9 in males 18-34) for an average audience (which ties the series low) of 1.0 million viewers.

The cable network is quick to point out the fact that the NBA playoffs are in full swing and they were up against the clinching game of the Dallas Mavericks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder series, which did very well on ESPN with seven million viewers.

Can't win 'em all.

But will we finally see a meaningful increase in viewership now that just one episode remains before the live Finale? Or will folks just hold out until June 4 to see how it all shakes out?

Here's 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
Episode 6: 1.2 million viewers
Episode 7: 1.0 million viewers
Episode 8: 1.2 million viewers
Episode 9: 1.0 million viewers

Nine episodes down, just one to go.

TUF 13 episode nine saw two more quarterfinal elimination bouts, with Chuck O'Neil taking out Zach Davis (literally, Davis suffered two torn retinas and has been advised to retire immediately) and Tony Ferguson knock out Ryan McGillivray.

Oh, and the previously mentioned Ferguson became "The Boogeyman." Scary stuff.
