Oor 17 million view Baylor's championship win over Gonzaga

'N Geskatte 16.92 million people watched Baylor win the national championship title by routing previously unbeaten Gonzaga on Monday, the Nielsen company said.


That’s down nearly 14% from the 2019 title game between Virginia and Texas Tech. Last year’s NCAA basketball tourney was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Viewership declines are hardly unusual in today’s world. Awards show ratings have been cratering. Given that this year’s NCAA football championship saw its ratings plummet 27% persentasie, the basketball ratings weren’t half bad.

This was the first men’s Final Four with no teams from the Eastern time zone, where nearly half of the country’s television viewers are located.

Saturday’s men’s semifinal — already considered a classic — where Gonzaga beat UCLA in overtime on a last-second shot was seen live by just under 15 miljoen mense.

Op Sondag, the women’s NCAA championship, where Stanford edged Arizona, was seen by 4.08 miljoen mense, Nielsen said.
