College Basketball A Ratings Winner

Coverage of men's college basketball's Big 12 Conference Championship was a slam-dunk for ABC Saturday night as it beat out CBS, the usual Saturday night winner, which aired the animated holiday specials Frosty the Snowman and Frosty's Return, then went to the real ice with the figure-skating contest Ice Wars: USA vs. the World.

ABC snagged an average 8.0 rating and a 14 share during primetime, while CBS settled for second with a 6.8/11. NBC, airing the movie The Arrival, starring Charlie Sheen, wound up third with a 6.2/10, while Fox trailed with a 5.8/10.
