CBS and Turner – Highest TV Rating Ever for March Madness

According to The Dagger, even though it has only been one night, March Madness has had the highest TV rating ever on CBS, TBS, TNT, and TruTV and has earned a 6.6 on the Nielson TV Rating Scale.  It is the highest rating in Tournament opening day history.  10% higher than last year.  The article is below.

Since I am not a basketball fan, I do not understand all the hype and excitement, however, respect the fans and the game.  Sounds like March Madness is catching on across the country.  The Superbowl did not have a big turnout when it started, so perhaps March Madness will become as big as the Superbowl someday.  Who knows?
