This week, we’re switching things up and highlighting the top five shows in both sports and entertainment on Slingbox. Week after week in 2016, we are seeing the same shows score big with Slingbox users; two of the biggest viewing trends this year seem to be a surge in popularity for both NASCAR and politics.

Since the Sprint Cup series season started last month at Daytona, NASCAR Racing has been in the top 5 sports shows Slingbox fans watch each week. This bucks the general trend with NASCAR TV ratings, which have decreased this year, a trend many are attributing to the retirement of fan favorite Jeff Gordon. On the other hand, the popularity of 2016 election coverage mirrors the unprecedented interest in politics sweeping the country as we continue to move further down the road to the White House.

The timing for the next Republican and Democratic debates is still up in the air but in the meantime, political junkies can use their Slingbox to catch the latest updates from the campaign trail on all of the major news networks. Racing fans can “sling” the Good Sam 500 starting at 3 p.m. ET this Sunday on FOX.

We’ll be back next week with more lists.
