The season's final IndyCar race drew 229,000K viewers to NBC Sports Network Saturday night according to information tweeted by John Ourand (@Ourand_SB) of the Sports Business Journal (sportsbusinessjournal.com). Only bull riding (237,000) did better on NBCSN last week. IndyCar had been the top rated program on NBC Sports Network for the last two race weeks.
It's the third straight race on NBC Sports Network that IndyCar attracted around 250,000 viewers, which equates to about a 0.2 U.S. household rating.
A "U.S. household rating" measures the number of households viewing the program out of the total number of households in the U.S., regardless of if they are able to receive NBC Sports Network programming or not.
