Fast National ratings for Sunday, March 23, 2014.
CBS got 41 minutes of overrun from a tight NCAA Tournament thriller between North Carolina and Iowa State, which boosted the network's lineup to Sunday primetime wins in most measures.
Due to that NCAA Tournament overrun, I have to remind you that these numbers are time period data and thus we don't have any sort of exact ratings for Sunday night's pivotal episodes of both "The Good Wife" and "The Mentalist."
On the other three networks, there was some consistency, at least: Nearly everything went down. ABC got a second straight week of fairly steep declines from "Resurrection," though the freshman hit was still easily Sunday's top drama. Also drooping were FOX's "Cosmos," as well as NBC's "Believe" and "Crisis," which shed viewers after a weak premiere for "American Dream Builders."
