Saturday TV Ratings 3/20/21: March Madness Coverage Steady with Friday, NBC Takes Second with Dateline and SNL Vintage

Preliminary Analysis: CBS was once more in the lead with their second night of March Madness (0.9/0.8). The games were essentially on-par with the ones from Friday (0.8/0.8). NBC was far behind with encores of 'Dateline' (0.3) and 'SNL Vintage' (0.3). But the peacock network still edged out ABC's 'Shark Tank' (0.2) and 'American Idol' (0.2) repeat duo. Fox matched the alphabet network's efforts with reruns of 'The Masked Singer' (0.2) and 'Game of Talents' (0.2).

Final numbers to come.
