coca cola 600 2012 TV ratings: NASCAR drives FOX to a Sunday win, 'Harry's Law' ends quietlyFast National ratings for Sunday, May 27, 2012

FOX’s coverage of the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night gave the network a ratings win, and it lapped the field in the 18-49 demographic.

Elsewhere, “Harry’s Law” bowed out quietly for NBC, and CBS continued to burn off its canceled cop show “NYC 22.”

FOX averaged 6.9 million viewers and a 4.1 rating/6 share in households for the night with its live sports coverage (the numbers will likely change some in the final nationals). CBS (4.6 million, 3.1/6) came in second, followed by NBC (4.2 million, 2.8/5) and ABC (3 million, 1.9/4)

In the adults 18-49 rating, FOX’s 2.1 rating equaled the combined total of the other three nets. NBC took second with a 0.8, while ABC averaged 0.7 and CBS 0.6.
