final-four Last night's UK-Wisconsin rematch drew a 13.3 overnight television rating, ranking it the most watched Final Four game since 1993.  That's 22 years worth of big-time games that didn't meet the benchmark.  Kentucky's undefeated record obviously had a lot of people tuned-in.  Add that to the game being a Final Four rematch, one year in the making.  It had all the ingredients to be a great basketball game. Despite the outcome, viewers got what they wanted; a close game that kept you on the edge of your seat, no matter who you were cheering for.  The officiating was questionable, but that's nothing new to sports fans. The Duke-Michigan St. game drew an 11.4 rating, even though it was a blowout.  I think it's safe to assume many of those simply tuned-in early, waiting for the later game.
