americas-cup-logo-300While TVNZ remain silent on the success of their America’s Cup coverage, yesterday’s ratings for the America’s Cup races between Team New Zealand and Oracle saw an increase of 26% on the previous Monday. The average audience for races 9 and 10 was 542,675 viewers.

The ratings have been enormous so far, particularly for the time of the day they are on.

Monday, September 9th: 432,350
Wednesday, September 11th: 509,600

Sunday, September 15th: 812,030
Monday, September 16th: 542,675

Average: 575,556

The event could be all over tomorrow if Team New Zealand can win races 11 and 12 of the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco.
