I'm really liking Kansas this year. They seem pretty unbeatable lately. I think they can beat UCLA (which may be my final 2 if the brackets work out right).

CBS Expanding Internet NCAA Basketball Offerings


CBS's broadband package of out-of-market games for "March Madness" -- the NCAA's men's basketball tournament -- is expected to earn twice the amount of ad dollars this year than it did last, CBS Sports president Sean McManus told Reuters on Tuesday. The wire service reported that CBS plans to double the bandwidth capacity and provide a video screen that is double the size it was last year. Coverage begins at 12:00 noon EDT Thursday, March 15.

UCLA out of the Pac 10 tournament. Ouch. Makes me nervous to pick them as a final four team.

YouTube, CBS Strike NCAA Deal
Viacom Inc.'s spat with Google Inc.'s YouTube may be heading to court, but the online-video site continues to partner with major media companies. YouTube and CBS Corp. announced a deal Thursday under which YouTube will show highlights, post-game press conferences and other clips from the TV network's telecasts of the NCAA basketball tournament. CBS and YouTube will split resulting advertising revenue. The deal with CBS underscores the allure of YouTube's huge and passionate audience for the television networks, whose core viewership is aging and more fragmented then ever. "There's a growing demand for professional content owners to have a presence on YouTube and to have that dialogue with the (YouTube) community," Chris Maxcy, YouTube's director of content partnerships, said in an interview. CBS, General Electric Co.'s NBC and other media giants have experimented with adding their content to YouTube. Broader partnerships have been dicier to negotiate -- as Viacom's recent lawsuit against YouTube shows. The deal for the NCAA tournament will add a CBS "channel" on YouTube, which comScore said drew more than 133.5 million unique visitors in January -- larger than the audience for the Super Bowl. Recently, the NCAA channel showed several highlights from Thursday afternoon's games and pre-game commentary from CBS sports analysts. The most popular clip had been viewed roughly 250 times. CBS and YouTube will share revenue from an exclusive advertising sponsorship from Pontiac, a division of General Motors Corp. The companies didn't detail expected revenue from the partnership or how they would split the ad dollars. YouTube will also keep track of user-generated videos that feature content from CBS's telecast of the two-week basketball tournament, and split ad revenue from those clips as well. "Through this agreement, CBS is monetizing its content on the Internet and proving that world-class programming can help bring brand-name advertisers to online platforms," Sean McManus, president of CBS Sports, said in a statement. Sports content is among the most popular on YouTube, with NBA games and matches from the NHL and Chelsea soccer in the U.K. "There's absolutely no lack of interest or demand for us to work with (content) companies," Mr. Maxcy said. "I wish we could clone ourselves because we're working around the clock here."

College Basketball Scores for CBS


With an overrun of the NCAA basketball tournament giving the overall schedule a big boost, CBS dominated every half hour of primetime Sunday night. The combination of the basketball game and the first half hour of 60 Minutes (featuring Katie Couric's interview with Senator John Edwards and his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth) led the way at 7:00 p.m. with an 11.5 rating and a 21 share. Even the final -- and deciding -- episode of NBC's Your the One That I Want, aimed at finding the leads for a Broadway revival of Grease, could not find a substantial audience, settling for a third-place 4.8/8 at 8:00 p.m.

Dribblers vs. Dancers Tonight


The NCAA men's basketball championship game on CBS will tip off against the last half-hour of ABC's Dancing With the Stars tonight (Monday), then face the network's season premiere of The Bachelor. Still, the basketball game, between Florida and Ohio State, is expected to dominate, especially after Saturday's semifinal game between Florida and UCLA produced ratings that were 12 percent above last year's comparable contest. Meanwhile, NBC saw its ratings jump Sunday night as a second hour of Dateline at 8:00 p.m. won the hour with a 6.4 rating and a 10 share. The network held on to the lead at 9:00 with the game show Deal or No Deal scoring a 7.1/11 and beating a clips show of Desperate Housewives ("The Juiciest Bites"), which drew a 6.8/10. However, ratings for The Apprentice tanked in the 10:00 p.m. hour, registering a lowly 4.7/8 and placing third.

CBS Scores with March Madness


With nearly 20 million viewers tuning in to see Florida defeat Ohio State to win the NCAA men's basketball championship -- an audience 12 percent larger than last year's -- CBS was able to hold off Fox's American Idol and win last week's primetime ratings race. Nevertheless, Idol continued to hold the top two positions on the Nielsen list, with the Tuesday episode attracting 26.67 million viewers and Wednesday's 26.10 million. CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation came in third with 21.69 million viewers. Meanwhile, the premiere episode of the final season of HBO's The Sopranos on Sunday drew 7.7 million viewers, down 19 percent from last year's season opener and well behind the 13.4 million who tuned in to the fourth-season premiere in 2002. For the week, CBS finished in first place with an average 7.3 rating and a 12 share. ABC followed with a 6.1/10. Fox was close behind with a 5.9/10, while NBC trailed with a 4.7/8.
