Was that because of the level of interest or the fact it was on TruTV (which I don't get). If those games were on ESPN, the ratings would have been much higher.


Being on TruTV had something to do with it but I also think people don't really care. I know there are games on TruTV on Thursday morning and I guarantee much, much higher ratings than 1.2.


It's definitely for the hoops junkie. I would rather watch the play-in games than an NBA playoff game. I love college basketball, especially in March.

Last night's ratings were an astonishing .7. Ouch.

It's not surprising to me. I would doubt that the 1-16 to 3-14 games get good ratings either.

While I'm not sure, I would think the games with the best ratings are the games with teh most upset potential (4-13 to 8-9).

A 12-12 or 16-16 game, no matter the day/channel seems like ratings poison to me.

I doubt there is a huge VCU, Alabama St., etc. following.

I still think that this tournament is spectacular. FWIW, iPhone and iPad owners/hoops fans should download the March Madness On Demand App. It is free and lets you watch any game on your iPhone/iPad. Made sitting in my office yesterday much more enjoyable.

There is a similar app if you want to watch The Masters (also free).

I agree, No. 9. The tourney with the exception of two things has been great. The studio with the NBA guys is awful. I watched ESPN Gameday after the Syracuse at 1 am last night and it was Rece Davis, Dickie V, Jay Bilas and Hubert Davis. Awesome analysis! The other thing is TruTV. I don't get it so it forced me online last night.

Day 1 was really fun. Day 2 there was less drama but fun none the less. I have watched two days worth and about 7 pm each day, I am in a slightly dazed state. Looking forward to today and tomorrow. 8-) 8-) 8-)
