From Bob Henry's blog at  Not sure what his title means, cause when I read the rest of the item it sounds like the race coverage from CA placed second in ratings after reruns and a bunch of other stuff on CBS.  Guess those of us boycotting might have actually made a difference.   Smiley   BTW, we were watching a recorded Busch North race on HDNet, Rome on HBO, and CNN Sunday night.  

"NBC scores with 18-49 age group

NBC's coverage of Sunday night's Sony HD 500 NASCAR Nextel Cup race was a ratings winner and a placer, too, according to the overnights. reports that the race was tops among viewers in the 18-49 age group, posting a 2.6 average rating.

Among households, CBS took the lead early in the evening, from 7 to 8 p.m., as some viewers took a pass on prerace programming, opting instead for “60 Minutes.” But that part of the show hung in for second, edging ABC's “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” said.

At 8, CBS was still out front with a repeat of “Cold Case” and held on through the rest of prime time with the movie “Along Came a Spider.” Race coverage, while high in that key demographic, remained in second among households.

No accounting for taste, huh?"

I read on Jayski that ratings went 'up from a 5.1 last year, to a 5.2 this year.  Maybe we DID make a difference!
