I heard this last night on XM and thought it was quite interesting.  From Jayski:

"Indy TV Ratings Increase: ESPN had a final household coverage rating of 5.1 for the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard, a 3% increase from last year's 4.9. Household impressions were 4,888,964, up 5% from last year's 4,657,433. Viewership 6,667,729, up 1% from last year's 6,573,536. This race is ESPN's most-viewed auto race ever. The NASCAR Nationwide Series ORP event was on ESPN and had a final rating of 1.5, up 6% from last year's 1.4 on ESPN2. For NNS season on cable (ESPN and ESPN2), they are up 17 percent from last year (not including the California race that was rain-delayed and run on Monday).(ESPN)(7-29-2008)"

I also remember reading that "The Closer" drew 7.1 million viewers...a cable show that out drew Indy.

So people stuck around despite one of the boring races I have ever seen?  Either us fans are very devoted, very stupid, or just can't get around anymore due to the gas prices.

All of the above.   Wink

Or it's like being unable to look away from the proverbial trainwreck...

  The ratings system has no way of knowing how many viewers fell asleep and could not change the channel.
