In the latest TV ratings, CBS’ broadcast of UConn’s NCAA men’s basketball championship win dominated Monday in both total viewers and in the demo.

CBS | The men’s March Madness season finale averaged 11.2 million total viewers and a 2.7 demo rating, down just a bit from the last time CBS hosted the championship game (13 mil/3.0), in 2021.

NBC | The Voice (5.2 mil/0.5, read recap) dipped week-to-week, while the already-renewed Quantum Leap (2.1 mil/0.3, TVLine reader grade “A-“; read recap and post mortem) lost just a handful of viewers and held steady in the demo with its freshman finale.

ABC | American Idol drew 4.2 mil and a 0.5 with its Monday premiere (read recap), after which The Good Doctor (3.3 mil/0.3, get new finale date!) was steady.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. This is only an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please, no wagering.
