CBS gladly did away with Ransom for one night to continue airing their March Madness coverage (1.7), the added lead-in advantage helped an original 48 Hours (1.4) jump 100% from last week's low outing to an unrealistically strong number. 

ABC couldn't hold a candle to the former with their own game (0.4) and a countdown special before it (0.3) went even lower.

In anticipation of the 8th film in the franchise, NBC aired a presentation of Fast Five (0.5), it ended up higher than anything on ABC or FOX, 

FOX had anemic Motorcycle Racing (0.3), but at least it was a tiny improvement over drama repeats, right?
