MotoGP goes mainstream TV

CBS will be airing 3 of the GP races this summer. I wonder what percentage of time allocation will be actual racing?

SPEED has me totally turned OFF. Even when home, I record the race so I can blow through the commercials.

I hope the commentary is better than Laguna when they broadcast it on reg. stations. Anything is better than Speed though.

Anything mainstream is good for the sport, well... anything but SuckTV.

Seriously though, I am tired of hearing that 20 yrs ago we didn't even have this much but still... It pisses me off to no end that shows like PINK (re runs no less) have more audience than WSBK races!
