Belmont Stakes TV Ratings

Nielsen Media Research Inc. Television ratings indicate that all 6 games of the NBA Finals were the top six watched sports programs on US Television in the month of June 2008. The Belmont Stakes was the top non-NBA most watched sports event with 13.1 million viewers.

Here are some of the sports programs the Belmont beat out this month: The NHL Finals (Game 5 & 6 were broadcast in June), The US Open ( all days including The final round on Sunday June 15th and the Playoff on Monday June 16th), all NASCAR TV Events, All Fox National Baseball Broadcasts, the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships and all WWE wrestling broadcasts (Nielsen ratings count the WWE as a sports program).
