The old axiom of "Duke means high ratings" still holds true. Even better for CBS is that Butler's almost as good.
Saturday's Final Four games drew the highest TV ratings in five years and were up 8 percent from last season. The games drew an overnight 9.7 rating and 19 share, which is good for the network. However, it's still a far cry from Duke's heyday in the 90s, when the Devils' games usually doubled those numbers.
Overall, the tournament ratings are 6.2/13, up 2 percent to last season.
(Ratings represent the percentage of all households with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time. Overnight ratings measure the nation's largest markets.)
