Nicht nur dem Motorsport brechen die TV Zuschauer weg:
Figures from Nielsen show that NBC’s Sunday night games were down 13% year-on-year, ESPN Monday night games were down 17%, CBS Thursday night games down by 15%. Fox and CBS Sunday nights were the best performers, down 3%.
Similarly in the UK, September viewing figures for channels are suffering, including Sky Sports which has saw the viewing figures for its Premier League broadcasts fall by 19%. Taken together with BT Sport and Eurosport, there is a 9% decline across the board compared to 2010.
