CBS had Duke and Zion Williamson on Sunday, so CBS won in TV ratings on Sunday.

With the NCAA Tournament in full swing on CBS, ABC settled for second last night. Though NBC settled for fourth place among adults 18-49, “Good Girls” bounced back a bit from the prior week’s series lows.

Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast-national Nielsen numbers for CBS are subject to adjustment. CBS’ primetime was delayed 40 minutes due to a March Madness overrun.

CBS was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 9.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. After the Duke game, “60 Minutes” had a 2.1 rating and 11.2 million viewers.
