  • Used to pull in the 5s.

    Meanwhile MNF got 20 million viewers, 11.1 rating on ESPN for Denver-Seattle, 22.2 million combined for last night's double header.

      The NHRA nearly had equivalent viewership last weekend.

          Another dumb change based on the mistake of all mistakes, the idiotic chase.

          For decades the race was the weekend before Labor Day. Which meant that it was, for most people, before the kids went to school, before HS football started, etc. And, on TV, up against the goofy “week zero” college football games and some baseball. Then, trying to fix the un-fixable, some bright light bulb decided that its position in the idiotic chase was more important than the actual race and it was lost in a sea of college football.

          • Yes the NASCAR ratings are down from where they were. Yes for some it's fun to pummel them

            digest these numbers

            https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/...224727461.html

            MNF yeah this week down to 3.5 in that 18-49 group and just 12 million viewers
            Dancing with the Stars at 0.74 and 5 million viewers
            The recent Emmy broadcast audience was considered abysmal


            NASCAR isn't alone in seeing lower numbers. What we here don't have access to is the total number of TV viewers compared to 1, 5, 10 years ago and how do the NASCAR numbers compare to everything else. All TV viewership is down so do the networks and NASCAR look at their numbers in the context of the total drop in viewers and say, we're in the tank and should fold up our tent or is it just possible they say, look at everybody else and we're not in such bad shape. I have complete confidence that both sides of that discussion say, just glad we're not in the pit IndyCar is
            "You can't arrest those guys, they're folk heroes"
            "They're criminals"
            "Well most folk heroes started out as criminals"

            • No need to be hyper sensitive about it. Bristol used to be appointment TV. Now it’s obviously not and that’s a shame.

                I mean, I guess you'd have to describe what "fold up our tent" means. Obviously the series hasn't closed up shop, but it's radically changed the makeup of circuits, the cars, the drivers, and the points system multiple times over the last 20 years in an attempt to stem the loss of fans. If someone's going to argue that Indycar should follow NASCAR's lead, then NASCAR's lead is no longer "all ovals all the time with good ol boys!"

                • While all TV viewership is down, as the market fragments more and more, only ONE sport has changed positions relative to where it was before in a massive way. The same one that is the only sport to reduce its total venue size by maybe a third.

                  The one with an idiotic chase.

                    Two MNF games this week more or less simultaneous. 22.2 million viewers cume, peaked over 23.

                      At this point just barely. And this is compared to how high it used to be compared to every other motorsport broadcast on American television.

                        I kind of agree with you here. Bristol and Darlington were both special events that didn't need to be part of the playoffs. It's hard to get a 'perfect' schedule, but Bristol probably belongs back in August and not competing with college football for viewership on a Saturday evening.

                            What would the ratings be in 2022 had they never went to stages, lucky dogs, or playoffs?

                            We'll never know but I find it hard to believe that all the goofy new rules have improved their ratings.

                            Doing nothing at all could not have hurt the ratings any more than they've already been damaged and wouldn't have infuriated half the fanbase.
