The Fuel TV Network posted 10 straight months, including 44 straight weeks of year-over-year audiences increases.
"We’re thrilled that October continued the growth momentum that we’ve sustained throughout the year,” says George Greenberg, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Fuel TV. "We know things will keep rolling with our strongest UFC programming to date. It includes our first-ever live show in an MMA gym - "Training Day: Inside the Tristar Gym Live. We’re also very excited about the upcoming special UFC Unrestricted, a total unvarnished, behind-the-scenes look at the biggest event in UFC history, UFC 148. Plus, we have our sixth fight of the year, UFC on Fuel TV 6: Franklin vs Le.”
Extensive UFC coverage continues in the month with Fuel TV telecasting the live Weigh-in, Prefight, Fight and Postfight shows for UFC on Fuel TV 6: Franklin vs Le on Saturday, November 10; and the Weigh-in and Postfight shows for UFC 154: Condit vs St-Pierre on Saturday, November 17.
In this year, FUEL TV offers more UFC programming than any network has ever offered, with more than 100 hours of live fights, weigh-ins, preliminary bouts, and pre- and post-fight shows, and significant shoulder programming.
Fuel TV’s remarkable streak of viewership growth in 2012 continues this fall. The end of October marked Fuel TV’s tenth consecutive month and 44th consecutive week of audience growth, largely buoyed by the popularity of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events and programs.
Fuel TV is the fastest growing ad-supported cable network in percentage year-over-year growth in 2012 among households, total viewers, and men 18-49 during total day and prime time, according to Nielsen Media Research. This viewership growth continues on the heels of FUEL TV’s third quarter audience performance, which was the network’s most-watched ever.
