It makes me sad to read about ratings like these. But I have to say, it's hard to root for a series which shoots itself in the foot so often. Firing Randy Barnard, for example, upset a lot of the dwindling fan base.
I don't like hearing about the bad ratings. But I'm going to be an optimist. My local paper, which never covers Indycar, had two articles about yesterday's race. I'm going to hope that good press coverage will translate into more viewers for next weekend.
