Bellator 198 Peaks With 1.5 Million Viewers
While Bellator 198 may have only averaged 581,000 viewers on April 28th, the highly anticipated matchup between Frank Mir and Fedor Emelianenko was able to net a peak of 1.5 million viewers.
The initial data for the evening scored an 0.22 rating for the live broadcast on the Paramount Network, while the simulcast on CMT ended up with 169,000 viewers.
With DVR data accounting for the west coast replay and for DVR viewing up to three days after the broadcast, the show would turn out for 838,000 viewers, with the peak being for the Fedor-Mir main event.
On top of a solid rating for the promotion, it would generate the second biggest gate in Bellator history.
