UFC Fares Well In Primetime

December 17, 2018

A UFC bout on Saturday evening in the USA scored the highest rating in the 18-49 demographic in its time slot.

In a week consisting mostly of reruns the fight between Kevin Lee and Al Iaquinta (in photo) on FOX scored a 0.7 rating among 18-49s, the best for shows starting at 8 pm, although the audience of 2.15 million trailed repeats of Dateline on NBC (3.33 million) and NCIS: Los Angeles on CBS (3.01 million).

The 18-49 rating for the UFC was 0.2 higher than FOX scored for its broadcast of the season-ending 2018 MLS Cup last week, which had a 0.5 in the same demographic.
