Everything is lukewarm so far… at best.
Episode 3 was viewed by 635,000 people and received a rating of 0.37 in the 18-49 demographic. The Challenge: 14 Biggest Meltdowns was viewed by 310,000 people and received a 0.16 in the 18-49 demographic.
This is a pretty good bump up in ratings, but Fear Factor outperformed The Challenge with 936,000 viewers and a 0.47 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Who would have thunk that Fear Factor would be a success for MTV?
