March Madness officially came to an end Monday night with Louisville beating Michigan in the NCAA Championship game. Metered Markets have the game up 18 percent from last year’s ender, pulling a 14.3 rating and 23 share among households. It marks the end to a boosted tournament for CBS Sports and Turner Sports, which saw overall coverage up an average of nine percent.
In the adults 18-49 demo, Fast National returns give the game a 7.5 rating. That’s up half of a point from last year’s initial returns. It will likely see some change when time zone adjustments come in.
