Fast National ratings for Monday, April 6, 2015.
A competitive showdown between high-powered and star-studded No.1 seeds Duke and Wisconsin helped the 2015 NCAA Championship Game draw its best overnight numbers in 18 years, getting a huge bump from last year's game and leading CBS to Monday domination.
Keep in mind, as always, that these are time period numbers for a game that started a bit after 9 p.m. ET and 6 p.m. PT, rather than ratings for the game itself.
While "The Voice" and "Dancing with the Stars" mostly held their own against CBS' basketball, the enhanced competition took a bite out of a few scripted shows, sending "The Following" to below The Mulaney Line with a 0.9 key demo rating and also dropping the drama below 3 million viewers. Basketball also sent The CW's "The Originals" and "Jane the Virgin" to low ratings.
