NEW YORK (AP) - The NCAA tournament's television ratings for the regional semifinals and finals are up 13 percent from last year.

The games Thursday through Sunday on CBS and TBS averaged a 7.0 rating and 14 share, up from a 6.2/12 last season.

CBS and Turner said Monday the tournament is averaging a 6.2/13 overall this year, the best since 2005.

Ratings measure the percentage of American homes with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of those with TVs in use at the time.
