The Rise of Ultimate Fighting

Surely this news says something about the culture:
NEW YORK, NY, May 1, 2006 – The fourth episode of Spike TV’s hit series, The Ultimate Fighter 3®, out delivered more men in the hard-to-reach demographic of M 18-34 than the combination of the NBA Playoffs on TNT, the NHL Playoffs on OLN, and a marquee MLB match-up between the Red Sox and Indians on Thursday, April 27. The Spike TV telecast drew 799,000 Men 18-34 while the three combined telecasts drew 725,000.

Dude, you are sooo gay. On the one hand, you post about Ultimate Fighting and two minutes earlier you post about Gilmore Girls! WTF?

Wanna know how I know you're gay? Because you like Coldplay

Contrary to your McCainian objections to ultimate fighting, I would argue that it is both more interesting and safer than boxing. I have yet to hear of a legitimate UF match that has ended in death.

Surely this is good news for those who fear for the weakening of the American Jacksonian impulse.
