The NCAA men’s Final Four drew big audiences for TBS Saturday, improving a bit on the last time the cable channel had the Final Four.

The two games averaged 10.72 million viewers and a 3.1 rating among adults 18-49, up from 9.23 million and 2.9 in 2016. The numbers are down quite a bit (unsurprisingly) from last year’s Final Four coverage on CBS, where the primetime game drew 18.8 million viewers and a 5.5 in the 18-49 demographic.

Simulcasts of the two games on TNT averaged an additional 1.75 million viewers and 0.4 in adults 18-49.
