Last Saturday night's (June 4, 2011) Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 Finale drew an average of 1.8 million viewers for the live Spike TV broadcast from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
According to numbers released by the cable network today, the conclusion to the reality series garnered an overall household rating of 1.32 with a 1.74 among men 18-49 and a 1.95 among men 18-34.
By comparison, TUF 12 Finale back in Dec. 2010 drew an average of two million viewers and a 1.4 household rating, roughly the same as TUF 11.
TUF 13 Finale brought to a close a mostly disappointing season of the once popular reality hit. The show, widely regarded as the saving grace for the UFC after its debut back in 2005, saw its lowest numbers this year, despite featuring behemoth heavyweights Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos as opposing coaches.
