The show didn't start until after midnight on the East Coast but benefited from the lead-in of the NCAA men's basketball tournament which averaged 2.38 million viewers and finished second on the charts with a 0.82 rating in the 18-49 demo.
19 of the top 20 spots on the charts were related to the tournament with the World Baseball Classic taking the other spot. Rampage finished fifth for the day outside live sports.
As compared to the same week in 2022, Rampage was up 19% in overall viewers and 38.5% in 18-49. Rampage aired in a similar time slot last year due to the tournament, but the lead-in was only a 0.69 in 18-49 and 2.2 million viewers.
The biggest increase from last week was with males 18-49, up 15%. They also had a 10% decline with females 12-34 which somewhat offset that.
