CBS’ broadcast of the NCAA Championship game dominated Monday’s ratings: North Carolina’s 71-65 win over Gonzaga averaged a preliminary 5.6 rating among adults 18-49 and just under 18 million viewers.
Those numbers are likely to change a good amount in the finals as the game extended well past primetime. In metered-market households, the game’s 14.5/24 is up 21 percent from last year’s title game (which aired on TBS). It will likely come in behind the last CBS telecast of the championship in 2015 (which, to be fair, was an 18-year high).
Opposite the game, “The Voice” (2.1) and “Dancing With the Stars” (1.5) were both down week to week. Both were down 0.2 vs. last week’s early ratings (“The Voice” adjusted up in the finals while “DWTS” held).
“Taken” (0.9) and “Quantico” (0.6) each lost a tenth of a point from last week, as did “24: Legacy” (0.8) on FOX. “APB” matched last week’s 0.6.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||4.6/17||1.7/6||1.2/5||0.7/3||0.3/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||15.40||8.17||7.95||2.87||1.03|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
