The season premiere and series debut of "The Ultimate Fighter", the reality based show put on by the mixed-martial arts fighting organization "The Ultimate Fighting Championship" (UFC for short), did exceptionally well its' first time out this week on SpikeTV.

The debut efforts from the show scored a 1.4 cable rating, according to Nielsen Media Research. No show in the history of SpikeTV has been able to retain that much of the WWE audience from RAW (which is a two hour program, leading into the one hour premiere of the UFC show, making it three-straight hours on the same channel watching television).

UFC president Dana White had initially hoped to score at least a 1.0 cable rating, but projected his show to debut around 1.3, which is close to dead on the money. The show exceeded those expectations, which no matter how the "nay-sayers" may try and put it, has to be considered a success, at least for the debut. Whether or not the show can maintain numbers in this vicinity has yet to be seen.
