tv ratings for the USMotogp

2006 USGP TV Ratings on Speed Revealed
fx race pulls equal ratings to motogp machines
by dean adams
Tuesday, August 08, 2006
Here are the TV ratings for the recent Speed telecast of the USGP at Laguna Seca, and the ratings for other Speed programming shown on the same day as the USGP.

World Superbike: .12 (82,000 Households)

AMA Superbike: .13 (85,000 Households)

MotoGP: .20 (137,000 Households) -- peaked at .29 (195,000 Households) in the second hour

AMA Formula Extreme: .20 (137,000 Households)

The highest rated program on Speed for the day was NASCAR RaceDay; it averaged .72 (483,000 HH).

Windtunnel, Two Guys Garage, Speednews and the NASCAR post-race show all pulled more viewers than the MotoGP telecast on Speed.

Updated: Reader Chris Nugent sourced the numbers for the ABC network re-broadcast/highlights show. Over 1.1 million people watched as Kevin Schwantz wore a suit and looked momentarily like he might at a dreaded "real job" that telecast.

Thanks superbikeplanet.com

well yes and no.....I never expected the GP to gather more attention then the Nascar related programs, but I did expect it would be able to generate more interest then "two guys garage". Sometimes I wonder what the percentage of people from websites like this watching motorcycle racing is. I got into motorcycles because I loved watching the racing as a kid. I think a lot of kids today get into motorcycling because of the cool factor, the bling, the bikes get chicks attitude. I am amazed to see how many new people I see on sportbikes these days. All of them with no gear, no ability, brand spanking new 1000cc superbikes, no common sense and no desire to improve what so ever. These people should watch races, they would find all the information they lack right there on the little screen.
crap....rant over....I hope it makes some sense cuz I had a few drinks and it took me 15 min to type this.

I'm not surprised. Our Idea of sports here in the US is completely differenty then the rest of the world.

that's what happens when sports get put on small networks with the addition of being a generally unknown sport to the masses, that's just how it is.

but we whine because they barely put bikes on the programming list. If YOU were the CEO, and where charged with keeping your broadcasting company profitable, would you air Nascar or Bikes? I'd be all over NASCAR for sure.

I wonder how ABC's coverage of the Laguna race will affect the sport... hopefully that was a good start to somewhat popularize/commercialize motorcycle racing and get shown more

actually I couldn't watch it.... it really pissed me off when the battle for 1st/2nd was going on and they went to comercial then they came back and had switched spots and didn't even show what happened...no replay no nothin

The idiots kept on talking on talking about nothin durring the whole race too. If they really wanted to make the races interesting the idiots in the booth would have to get off their arse and get down to the races and show whats going on.
