NASCAR Wins On Saturday Night
For those of you who ask about TV ratings, here is the official information that the Sprint Cup race from Darlington in primetime beat the other programs on the broadcast TV networks that night.
Fox averaged 7.4 million NASCAR fans for the Darlington 500 Saturday night and easily won the evening.
CBS placed second with an average 5.8 million viewers for a "CSI: Miami" repeat, a "Criminal Minds" rerun and a new "48 Hours Mystery."
ABC attracted 4.5 million with the NBA playoffs (Cavaliers vs. Celtics) and NBC came in fourth among the broadcasters with 4.1 million viewers for reruns of "Medium," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "Law & Order."
I would guess that those 1PM Sunday start times are going to be a thing of the past.
