By Sherdog.com Staff Sep 24, 2009
The second week of “The Ultimate Fighter 10” saw its ratings drop by 29 percent from its record-shattering debut last Thursday of 4.1 million viewers (2.9 household rating) on Spike TV.

However, the series still netted 2.9 million viewers (2.2 rating) and was the top-rated show in its timeslot for Men 18-34, according to a press release distributed by Spike TV Thursday.

According to the release, the episode drew a 4.2 in Men 18-34 (5.3 last week), a 3.2 in M 18-49 for 1.8 million viewers (4.3 and 2.4 million last week), and scored big with 1.1 million viewers during the 11 p.m. replay.

Thursday’s episode still eked past the series’ previous highpoint of 2.8 million viewers for the live finale of “The Ultimate Fighter 3” in 2006, said the release, keeping the season on track for the highest overall ratings ever for the series.

Spike TV executives have more to look forward to next week when Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson squares off against former IFL heavyweight champion Roy Nelson.
