With no original programs airing on the broadcast nets, the Saturday TV ratings were a cable affair. The day was led by ESPN's 'UFC Fight Night' which found a 0.43 adults 18-49 rating and 1.07 million total viewers. It also led among men 18-49 (0.62), adults 18-34 (0.33), and males 12-34 (0.33). Interestingly, it also led in females 12-34 (0.20) though that was mostly due to the fact that there was no serious competition in that demo.
In scripted content, Adult Swim had a new episode of 'My Hero Academia' (0.22, 499,000) which scored strong numbers among males 12-34 (0.26) and adults 18-34 (0.21). Elsewhere, Nickelodeon had solid returns with 'Young Dylan' (0.11, 488,000) and 'Group Chat' (0.07, 313,000). The former show notched 0.17 in F12-34 - the closest competition to 'UFC' in that demo.
Food Network had its usual line-up of originals including 'The Kitchen' (0.19, 1.024 million), 'Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives' (0.19, 693,000), 'Pioneer Woman' (0.18, 1.015 million), 'Grill Power' (0.17, 874,000), 'Giada at Home' (0.17, 865,000), and 'Barefoot Contessa' (0.13, 779,000). In women 18-49, those programs were at 0.27/0.21/0.26/0.23/0.24/0.19.
