For those of you who are into television ratings and such, here you go: the Strikeforce Nashville numbers from the triple title card on CBS.

9:00 p.m. – Viewers: 2.57 million (#4), A18-49: 0.8/ 3 (#4)
9:30 p.m. – Viewers: 2.55 million (#4), A18-49: 1.0/ 3 (#4)
10:00 p.m. – Viewers: 2.89 million (#3), A18-49: 1.2/ 4 (#2)
10:30 p.m. – Viewers: 2.52 million (#3), A18-49: 1.0/ 3 (#2)

Overall, those numbers aren't enough. But when you compare them to the November numbers (5+ million) when Fedor Emelianenko fought, well, you get the idea.

Saturday night's broadcast said Strikeforce would be back on CBS this Fall, but nothing official has been announced.
