Does anyone know what the final four viewership ratings? I figured they would be down or low because of the teams represented (no "blue blood" program) and because of the lack of notable star players (with media attention).

If anyone knows, I think it would be interesting to see and discuss! Thanks!

GoDuke!

Technically, they were up over last year. But this year the games were on CBS, while last year they were on cable (TBS). So the numbers were going to be higher.

Tonight's game will be also not be apples to apples, since last year was on cable. So when they come out, maybe compare it to 2017, Gonzaga v. UNC.

You can see comparing to 2017 when they were on CBS, the 2019 ratings were lower

I hope Virginia wins, but I have no intention of watching the game, and certainly hope I'm asleep when it ends at 11:30. Yes, if Duke was in it as we expected, I'd be watching. LGD GTHc!http://www.crazietalk.net/ourhouse/images/smilies/devil9f.gif

I would enjoy watching the game, but the starting time is too late for me and my interest in college basketball decreased massively last Sunday.

As a hoops fan I'll be watching. Hope the Hoos pull it out. Another banner for the ACC and a legit academic institution.

If you have trouble getting to sleep, just turn the game on. You’ll be out in five minutes.

Not sure what the betting line is, but seems to me 100 points total for both teams would be a reasonable over/under.

Surprisingly the over/under consensus in Vegas is 1191/2

I assume that's the "rewatch before the final season" binge. My better half and I knocked that out in short order in the first two months of the year.
