I thought the service was blacked out till Tuesday even on the internet per the Speed contract. How much could they be paying? Let's buy'em out

Speed had race 1 on at 1600 on Sunday, but then replaced race 2 with "Pimp my Ride" and the Barret-Jackson auction.

Wonder why none of the normal stations don't pick this up. Speed, Iam sorry but they suck! After Despain started commentating for Nascar it just went down hill. Although they show more, the scheduling never makes sence.

Same reason that you don't see 400cc sportbikes in the US. Not enough people will buy the products. If 10 million people wanted to watch WSBK rest assured it would be on ABC Sports. However maybe 10K people at most watch it. Can't blame the broadcasters.

Was it just trail and error when CBS aired the races last year, thought for sure they'd have picked up a few.

I think the key to getting good ratings on broadcasting this series, or any racing series, is CONSISTENCY!

If I know it's going to be on at XXXX hours every week, I'll be there.

Geezus. I should be a TV exec.
