The ratings for the fourth episode also reached 1.1 million viewers, but the following week the show reached an all time low with just 624,000 viewers. However, it should be noted that the fourth episode had a lead-in with the LIVE UFC on FX 5 event.

This is the second season for TUF on FX after many fruitful years of airing on SPIKE TV. The initial season which broke away from the traditional edited version of TUF averaged just over one million viewers for the entire season. That was a sharp contrast to the 1.7 million average the show had on SPIKE TV. This season has returned to the edited version of TUF and is currently averaging a little under one million viewers each week.
