good wife march 30 14 ratings TV ratings: 'The Good Wife' rises Sunday with NCAA assist, 'Resurrection' dipsFast National ratings for Sunday, March 30, 2014

“The Good Wife” saw its ratings improve Sunday, a week after it suddenly killed one of its main characters. The CBS show drew some of its best numbers of the season, pending updates for live NCAA basketball that pushed the network’s primetime schedule back 20 minutes in Eastern and Central time.

Not pictured in these ratings: the season finale of “The Walking Dead,” which will just about certainly beat everything on the broadcast networks. Opposite that at 9 o’clock, ABC’s “Resurrection” and FOX’s “Cosmos” both dropped, as did “Believe” on NBC.

CBS scored 11.7 million viewers and a 7.3 rating/12 share in households for the night, pending updates. ABC (6.45 million, 3.9/6) came in second, and NBC (3.9 million, 2.5/4) edged FOX (3.5 million, 2.0/3) for third.

CBS also took the adults 18-49 crown with a 2.3 rating. ABC finished second with a 1.8, followed by FOX, 1.5, and NBC, 0.9.
