Oh, Thank God: ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ Reportedly Moving to Tuesdays

The Ultimate Fighter‘s year of wandering the Friday-night desert may be coming to a merciful end. Following two seasons on FX in which the show’s viewership went from really bad to straight-up abysmal, a new ad in UFC 360 (formerly UFC Magazine) claims that TUF 17: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen will debut Tuesday, January 22nd, at 9 p.m. ET. Says MMAJunkie.com:

UFC and FX officials have yet to make an official announcement, however representatives from both companies have since confirmed the change with MMAjunkie.com. UFC President Dana White was a little more coy.

“That day sounds good to me,” White told MMAjunkie.com.

With the new season of TUF slated for Tuesdays, it seems that the UFC and Bellator will avoid an uncomfortable head-to-head scheduling situation. According to recent reports, Bellator’s live events will be returning to Thursdays beginning next month.

TUF 17, which began filming in October, will feature a cast of middleweight fighters to be named shortly. The question is: Will you start watching it again? Before you answer, keep in mind that these guys will no longer be on the show.

This last season of TUF was so lame they should have let Chael film it at the Roseland here in Portland.

Look Jade, we can go feed third world orphans. it's cool. I'll bust out some eight ropers for you and they'll have more protein than they can wash down with a mouthful of UNICEF grain. I promise.

They put the show on Friday nights simply to capture new viewers. This was all planned.

Thank God. Chalk me up in the "I do shit on Fridays and do not own a DVR" category. I will finally watch again. Granted it will just be the final 15 minutes of the show because I hate reality tv, but I'll watch the fights none the less...

I've never stopped watching, not even this season, with the worst batch of sparring partners I've ever seen. Is there a single real fighter among them? I don't think so. But I'll watch next season, too. Why not, I DVR it, skip the commercials and the bullshit, takes me about 20 minutes, less if the fight actually has a stoppage.

Let me check my calendar... sorry, I'm busy Tuesdays. I've got a thing.
