[via press release from Turner]

NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship

Turner Sports and CBS Sports' exclusive coverage of the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship - across TBS, CBS, TNT and truTV - is delivering its highest viewership in 21 years (since 1993).

Through its opening week, the NCAA Tournament is averaging 9.2 million viewers, a +4% increase through the same period last year (8.9 million viewers). Through its first six days, the tournament is averaging a 5.9 U.S. household rating (+2% vs. a 5.8 U.S. HH rating to date in 2013). The 5.9 U.S. HH rating is tied with 1998 as the highest rating for the opening week of the tournament in 17 years.

This year's NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship has netted audience growth through each stage including a record-setting NCAA First Four on truTV and year-to-date viewership increases during the second and third rounds.

Driven in part by the success of the NCAA, TBS ranked as basic cable's #1 network on in primetime among total viewers, adults 18-34, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54, with TNT ranking second with viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 and truTV ranking among the Top 10 with adult demos. In addition, TNT scored basic cable's top spot for the week in total day delivery of adults 25-54.

The 51 million live video streams - across online and mobile platforms (tablets and smart phones) - have grown +40% when compared tournament to date with 2013. Additionally, NCAA March Madness Live has netted more than 10.5 million hours of live video consumed, an increase of +6% over last year and on pace to rank as an all-time record.
