IndyCar Doubleheader Has Slight Uptick on ABC

Posted by | June 3, 2013 at 1:05 PM

An weekend doubleheader did not do much to lift overnight ratings for the IndyCar Series.

The second race of the IndyCar Series Chevy Indy Dual in Detroit drew a 0.8 overnight rating on ABC Sunday afternoon, up a tick from last year’s solo Detroit race (0.7), which experienced delays and concluded on ESPNEWS.

On Saturday, the first race of the weekend drew a 0.7 overnight.

The only live sporting event to earn a lower overnight on broadcast over the weekend was the Rugby Sevens on NBC (0.5 overnight on Saturday, 0.6 overnight on Sunday).
