  • Vegas ratings look promising

    let's hope this is a trend for all motorsports in 08


    note: this is ZAP TV Fast Nationals - only for the Sunday 7pm time slot

    CBS' "60 Minutes," 8.0/13, led the 7 p.m. hour in households, but FOX's coverage of the NASCAR UAW-Dodge 400, 7.0/12, had a few more total viewers. "America's Funniest Home Videos" put ABC in third with a 4.7/8, topping the 3.9/7 for "Dateline NBC." The CW aired an "America's Next Top Model" repeat.

    If that holds, it would be a nice increase.

    2007 - 6.2
    2006 - 6.3
    2005 - 6.4

    NOTE: That quote doesn't say if it's the total broadcast rating, or if it's just the hour.

      At 7 p.m. Fox was first with a 4.5 for coverage of NASCAR racing, with ABC second with a 2.7 for “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” CBS was third with a 2.1 for “60 Minutes,” NBC fourth with a 1.6 for “Dateline,” Univision fifth with a 1.1 for an hour of “P. Luche” and CW sixth with a 0.6 for a repeat of “America’s Next Top Model.”

        The ratings don't fall into the doldrums until after Bristol, same every year, Daytona caries the early season until chase positioning becomes job one. That doesn't happen until the races start "averaging out."
        It's always been about the Indy 500!

          AOW can beat that.

            Even if it doesn't entirely hold Jayski has the fast nationals as a 6.7 last year which dropped to 6.2 in the finals. Looks like NASCAR's upwards ratings trend is continuing with the fast national 7.0. As someone said before, hopefully this translates across all racing.

                    It's only up because of the vast fan base added via Franchitti, Hornish, and Carpentier.

                      I don't believe Jim offered any comment, one way or the other.

                      Isn't the 18-49 number of interest?

                        Or maybe because they heard the Split was over, whatever that was...

                          I think they were all in the trailer by 7 PM...

                            How can this be?

                            NASCAR is doomed. Ratings are a death spiral.

                            "The Split" made NASCAR. Now that it is over, its 1979 again.

                            From Jayski:

                            NASCAR ON FOX earned a major victory Sunday with a 6.2/12 for Sprint Cup Racing from Las Vegas. That 6.2/12 is a 13% gain over last year's 5.5/11 for the same race. This year's 13% growth for the Las Vegas race matches FOX's best gain for any single race in almost four years, since the 2004 California race posted a 14% increase. Sunday's 6.2/12 is FOX's best rating for the Las Vegas race since 2003 (6.3/13). For the season-to-date, NASCAR On FOX is averaging a 7.2/14 for the Sprint Cup, up +3% over last year's 7.0/14. So far this season, FOX has aired four Sprint Cup events that were not impacted by weather (Bud Shootout, Daytona qualifying, Daytona 500, Las Vegas 400) and all four have either matched or beaten last year's metered market rating.

                            Try again doomders.

                              I'm confused this says it scored a 6.2 which was a 13% gain over last year's 5.5, yet others have posted that last year was 6.2 and 2006 was 6.3. So where is the gain of 13% and where did the 5.5/11 come from?

                              2005 - 6.4
