IndyCar TV ratings on Versus down from 2010
Sunday's event at New Hampshire marks the 12th of 17 events on the 2011 schedule. ABC will broadcast five events this year, including the Indianapolis 500, and the other 12 races are carried on the cable network Versus. Outside of the Indy 500, TV ratings remain low and relatively stagnant. In 2008, ABC's broadcast of events earned a 1.0 average rating, with ESPN earning a 0.6 average. In 2009, events on ABC earned a 0.83 average rating, with Versus events getting a 0.33. In 2010, the ABC number was 0.8 and Versus 0.39. Through 11 events this year, ABC coverage has earned a 1.01 average rating and Versus a 0.35 average, down from last year's 0.39 as it remains a noose around IndyCar's neck.
