  1. Ever gonna do a spreadsheet of TV Ratings for every NCAA tournament game again? Think in some years some games [mainly the championship games on CBS] had higher ratings than individual games of the NBA Finals if I’m not mistaken.

    Michigan/Villanova championship game got 13.3 million viewers
    4.09 A18-49
    3.42 A18-34
