Kimbo Slice Leads ‘TUF 10′ To It’s Highest Rating In History

As expected, the Season 10 premiere of The Ultimate Fighter shattered all records for the show, garnering it’s highest rating ever. The episode did a 2.9 rating and 4.1 million viewers, eclipsing it’s previous record of 2.8 million viewers for the finale of The Ultimate Fighter Season 3 in 2006.

Last night’s episode was also the highest-rated debut of any Spike TV original show, topping the previous record of 3.4 million viewers set by The Joe Schmo Show season finale in 2003.

The show also allowed Spike to beat all other programming, both cable and network, amongst the coveted key demographic of men 18 to 49 in that timeslot.
