Ratings: Harry's Law Ends Season On Low Note

CBS’ coverage of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship dominated this Monday night, averaging 17.3 million total viewers and a 6.1 demo rating from 9 to 11 pm. While those numbers were down at the very least 6 percent from last year’s infinitely more watchable Duke-Butler match-up, scripted rivals nonetheless felt the sting.

The season finale of NBC’s Harry’s Law, for one, only courted 7.4 million viewers and a 1.3 demo rating, dropping 10 and 19 percent, respectively, to all-time lows.

Even ABC’s red-hot Castle dipped 10 percent from season highs, to 11.7 mil and a 2.9.

Elsewhere, The Event shed 11 percent in total audience (to under 4 mil) but held steady with a 1.2 rating. So there’s that. (BTW, the First Lady is so a Visitor, don’t you think? Er, I mean a “sleeper.”)

Lastly, Dancing With the Stars drew 21.4 million viewers and a 4.6 rating, down 4 and 11 percent week-to-week. If the parquet has a god, the noisy Kirstie Alley goes home tonight.
