A Ridiculous Amount Of People In Louisville Watched Yesterday's Kentucky-Indiana NCAA Tournament Game

Louisville fans might tell you they don't care about the NCAA Tournament this year because the Cardinals are banned from it, but it appears they are lying. 

The TV ratings for Saturday's Kentucky-Indiana second round game are in and they are pretty ridiculous, especially in the Louisville market. 

The game between the Hoosiers and the Wildcats was watched by nearly 250,000 households in the Louisville market. The contest, won by Indiana, received a 36.9 rating/56 share. Each rating point represents about 6,750 households in the market. The "share" is the percentage of TVs in use that were tuned into the game.
