NASCAR Pocono TV Ratings

Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Party in the Poconos 400 earned a final 2.8 U.S. rating and 4.4 million viewers on TNT, down 13% in ratings and 17% in viewership from last year (3.2, 5.3M), and down 10% and 19%, respectively, from 2011 (3.1, 5.2M).

The 2.8 rating is the lowest for the season's first Pocono race since at least 2000. The previous low was a 3.0 for the 2007 race. The race also ranks as the second-lowest rated and second-least viewed Sprint Cup telecast of the season, ahead of only the Sprint Cup All-Star Race on Speed Channel in May (2.3, 3.7M). Despite the lower numbers, Sunday's race ranked as the fifth-most viewed television program of the week on cable
