Weekend TV Ratings (2nd Update)

UPDATE #2 Last Sunday’s presentation of the Singapore Grand Prix (7:30–10:15 a.m. ET) on NBCSN averaged 510,000 viewers to become the most-watched Singapore Grand Prix on record. Viewership was up 26% vs. 2014 (406,000), and the race produced a 0.33 HH rating.

The Singapore GP marked the fifth race in 2015 on NBCSN to eclipse 500,000 viewers. Only one race during the 2013 and 2014 seasons surpassed 500,000 viewers (2014 Bahrain GP; 594,000). Through nine races, the 2015 Formula One season on NBCSN has averaged 450,000 viewers, up 15% vs. 2014 (390,000).

09/22/15 NASCAR's ratings slump has continued into the Chase For the Cup. NASCAR Sprint Cup racing from Chicago, the first race in the Chase For the Cup, earned a 1.8 overnight rating on NBCSN Sunday afternoon – down 18% from last year on ESPN (2.2). The 2013 race featured multiple rain delays and moved from ESPN to ESPN2, earning a 1.6 overnight across both networks. The 1.8 overnight is the third-lowest of the season for NASCAR on any network, ahead of only Richmond the previous week (1.7) and Kansas on Fox Sports 1 in May (1.5). It is also the lowest for a Sunday NASCAR race this season. Despite the lower numbers, NASCAR on NBCSN topped competing coverage of the PGA Tour FedEx Cup on the NBC broadcast network (1.3) and was Sunday's top non-NFL sporting event in the metered markets.
