CBS Sports' exclusive live coverage of the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Regional Semi-Finals from the Boston and Glendale regions on Thursday, March 26 (7:00 PM-12:15 AM, ET) earned an average overnight household rating/share of 6.8/12, up +13% compared to last year's Regional Semi-Finals Thursday night rating/share of 6.0/11 in the metered markets.

CBS Sports' overall average overnight household rating/share for the Tournament-to-Date is a 5.6/12, up +8% compared to last year's 5.2/11 in the metered markets.

CBS Sports' first broadcast window of the night (7:00-9:45 PM, ET) featuring Pittsburgh's win over Xavier and Connecticut's victory over Purdue earned an average overnight household rating/share of 6.2/11, up +3% from last year's 6.0/11 (North Carolina-Washington State and Xavier-West Virginia, OT).
