  • NASCAR's Ratings still going up at Bristol

    Hadn't seen this posted anywhere for those that care. But Bristol pulled a 5.0 rating overnight, up from a 4.9 overnight last year (5.1 was the final last year and traditionally Bristol pulls higher finals than overnights by at least a couple of points). Not as dramatic an increase as previous weeks, but up none the less and it stops a skid of several years for the Spring Bristol race as well. This despite the weather troubles, NCAA basketball, Tiger Woods setting new records (guy is a stud), F1 racing now being available, etc...

    Pretty impressive, considering the competition (Tiger Woods in contention on NBC; the Big 10 tourney final on CBS and the Houston Rockets going for their 22nd consecutive win against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers on ESPN).

    The juggernaut rolls on.

      It's all because of the open wheel guys crossing over.

          Maybe. Hornish did qualify for Martinsville by moving to 35th. Definitely not Franchitti contributing however.

            I didn't watch any of them. I was watching a DVD of Eastern Promises.

            Great Movie BTW

                Thank God the Nascar TV ratings are going up. I was almost suicidal in '07 over the ratings decline. Does it get any better than this?

                  You may not have been suicidal, but some people were getting their jollies off last year because NASCAR was declining. Just posting the counterpoint that this year is turning out to be.

                    Yes, getting jollies over anything negative as regards NASCAR is pretty common here--it's certainly easier than improving the alternative.

                        Where is there any bad news for OW above? Good news for NASCAR doesn't = bad news for OW. Infact it may signal good news for OW ahead if they too get the bumps.

                          He means the usual suspects that drool over the bad news in OWR and always, ALWAYS, make a point to post it. And, to be fair, there are a few who post with glee on any bad NASCAR news.

                            For perspective...

                            Fox's coverage of Bristol still sees a bump in viewers, (albeit slight) against some pretty stout counter-programming.... 5/3.8 million

                            NBC's coverage of Tiger staying perfect at The Palmer Invitational saw a 61% increase in overnight numbers compared to last year's event... 4.2/3.2 million

                            And ABC's coverage of Houston going for its 22nd consecutive win against Kobe and the Lakers drew 81% better than the Mavs/Pistons game in the same time slot last year... 2.9/2.2 million

                            Id' say they held their own pretty well...

                              Correct.

                              And there are many many others who get caught in the cross hairs.
