Strikeforce: Fedor Vs Rogers – Final CBS TV Viewing Ratings Now KnownBy Ross Cole on November 10, 2009
What the figures didn’t show though was the ratings from 11pm-11.30pm when the main event of the evening between Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers was shown.
Those figures are starting to emerge this Tuesday, and sportsbusinessdaily.com is reporting that the average viewers for the entire show including the main event now stands at 4.042 million viewers, giving a final Neilson rating of 2.5.
As expected the main event, which had been the most heavily promoted in the days leading up to the fight by CBS and was highly anticipated by MMA fans, did help to push up the overall average viewing figures for the evening.
Some 5.46 million viewers tuned between 11pm-11.15pm in to see Fedor defeat Brett Rogers, a figure that is sure to be met with a positive response from both Strikeforce and CBS.
Having said that it still doesn’t match the peak of 6.51 million for last years EliteXC debut, though that was largely due to the presence of Kimbo Slice.
