  • Fontana TV ratings?

    Can't believe there's not a Fontana TV ratings thread yet. Anyone? I'm interested in the status of Danica Mania and TV ratings are one way to gauge it.

    Cable ratings don't usually come out until late Thursday or Friday after as Sunday event.
    DVR . . . . Life is too short to watch commercials.

      Why even bother asking. No one is gonna release it, and no one here will look for it. I predict a repeat of Motegi, Sears Point, and Watkins.

        Those predicting they won't see the Fontana rating will be sorely disappointed.

          How sorely, step? Testify.

              239%?? Must be along the the lines of Indy 500 ratings.

                Here's the other part you can see without a subscription:

                The Oct. 16 race, which was won by Dario Franchitti, recorded a 0.6 rating and peaked at 0.8 at 6 p.m. EDT.
                Was this race a .2 last year?

                    Ratings for IRL IndyCar® Series season finale increase 293 percent: The Toyota Indy 400 from the California Speedway recorded a 293 percent ratings increase compared to the 2004 race according to Nielsen Media Research, and season-long ratings on ESPN finished 33 percent ahead of races in 2004. The Oct. 16 race, which was won by Dario Franchitti, recorded a 0.6 rating and peaked at 0.8 at 6 p.m. EDT.

                    Across all three networks covering the IndyCar Series, ratings improved from the 2004 season:
                    .ABC Sports showed a 53 percent rating and 54 percent viewership increase compared to the 2004 season. Ratings on ABC Sports averaged a 2.0 in 2005 compared to a 1.3 in 2004.
                    .ESPN's IndyCar Series ratings averaged a 0.6, up from a 0.4 in 2004 for a 33 percent ratings increase as well as a 35 percent increase in viewership.

                    .ESPN2 IndyCar Series ratings climbed 50 percent to 0.3 in 2005 up from 0.2 in 2004. Viewership was up 86 percent.

                    "We are thrilled with the final ratings report for the 2005 IndyCar Series season," said Brian Barnhart, president and chief operating officer for the Indy Racing League. "With the introduction of the more compact schedule in 2006, we look forward to working with ABC Sports and ESPN to help grow the IndyCar Series ratings again next season."

                      If you read that in a certain way it almost sounds like good news......That can't be.

                      It'll be shot down and stomped out within the next 5 posts.

                        What a great year to be an IRL fan. Ratings UP, Attedence UP, Honda till 2009, I went to four awesome races. Woo Hooooooo!

                          As pathetic as the actual results are, substantial increases are in the right direction and at least provide motivation to keep plugging. The goals for next year should be to get ESPN above 1.0 and non-Indy races up above 2.0. That would be real good news. I don't think the compact schedule will be the end all be all, however, the one fault I always found with the current schedule is too much downtime between races. That part will help. Further development of personalities will also help. Hey, maybe more woemn dirvers are needed.

                            The Indy 500 was a 6.5, more than two points higher than last year. Fontana last year drew a .1, so it was half a point higher on one of the toughest competition weekends in sports of the year against golf, MLB playoffs, NFL and NASCAR on a Sunday. Even at that low level, a half point is a pretty significant gain against all of that going on.

                              I predict the improvement won't carry through to next season.
