The early ratings are in for CBS’s Saturday night MMA show, and although the numbers aren’t as good as the network did last year with Kimbo Slice, CBS executive Kelly Kahl tells FanHouse he’s encouraged that CBS improved on its usual Saturday night ratings among the coveted young male demographic. Now the question is whether MMA will improve to CBS in 2010. Kahl said it’s too soon to say about that, but that a significant improvement in the targeted demographic means CBS accomplished its first goal. Kahl noted that MMA on CBS beat college football on ABC in the demographic. mmafighting.com

I have to admit, it was nice seeing decent fights on free T.V…but I’m still sticking with D White and UFC for my MMA action. -TO
