Fast National ratings for Monday, April 7, 2014.
The University of Connecticut never trailed for a second in Monday night's NCAA Championship Game, but despite the lack of drama, the conclusion of March Madness gave CBS easy ratings wins, easing past both "The Voice" on NBC and ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."
Despite all of that competition, there was still room for FOX's "Bones" to improve week-to-week and for "The Following" to add a few viewers. And boosted by "The Voice," NBC's "American Dream Builders" doubled its dismal Sunday performances.
