It is all over.
The ratings are in for episode 10 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 and, all things considered, they aren't too bad. According to numbers released today by Spike TV, the latest episode garnered a 0.9 household rating (including a 1.14 in males 18-49 and a 1.2 in males 18-34) for an average audience of 1.2 million viewers.
TUF 13, which averaged 1.24 million viewers per episode throughout the 10 episode season, was the lowest rated TUF in the history of the show, which dates all the way back to 2005.
Alas, the disappointing season is over with just the Finale remaining this coming Saturday, June 4, 2011, from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
