WWE mocks The Ultimate Fighter ratings on Monday Night Raw

The WWE posted an infographic claiming that "Last Friday more than 3 times as many people watched Smackdown than (sic) the Ultimate Fighter." Television ratings sources indicate that 2.6 million viewers watched WWE Smackdown on September 28, 2012 while only 775,000 watched TUF.

TV by the Numbers reported the Friday night cable ratings yesterday, showing that WWE Smackdown on SyFy was the most watched show on cable with 2.6 million viewers. As we reported previously, The Ultimate Fighter on FX only drew 775,000 viewers, the lowest number in the series' history.

The WWE, being the classy organization that they are, couldn't resist the temptation to gloat a little bit on their Monday night broadcast of WWE raw, posting the following infographic:

Last Friday, more than 3 times as many people watched Smackdown than (sic) the Ultimate Fighter.
