A look at viewership for final round of Masters, NBC's coverage of NHL playoffs — This is not breaking news: Tiger Woods will remain his sport's top television draw -especially when it comes to the majors-until he is no longer competitive on a week-to-week basis.

Charles Barkley talks fame, social media at SXSW, plus more Media Circus — Moderating a panel featuring Charles Barkley is an easy assignment: Your job is to basically get the hell out of the way so the TNT NBA analyst can talk. Last month, as part of the South By Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, I moderated a panel Barkley was on titled "How to Remain Relevant in Today's Digital Age."

Women's championship: UConn defeats Notre Dame, wins 10th title — TAMPA-When Breanna Stewart was a junior at Cicero-North Syracuse High School, more than a year before she would suit up for her first practice at the University of Connecticut, she would often check in with UConn coach Geno Auriemma to discuss her basketball goals and dreams. Once upon a time when Auriemma was trying to recruit players to come to tiny Storrs, Conn., he would sell them on the idea of building a program that could one day win an NCAA title.

Women's Final Four: Can Notre Dame stop UConn's dominance? — TAMPA, Fla. - It's not often (or, quite frankly, ever) horse racing comes up at the Women's Final Four, but anyone who has sat in on a Geno Auriemma presser knows to always expect the unexpected.

UConn and Notre Dame to meet again in women's national final — TAMPA, Fla.-For the 18th time since the 2009-10 season, and the fifth straight year at the Final Four, UConn and Notre Dame will meet on the court. While Notre Dame has won seven of the last 10 games in the series, UConn owns a victory in the biggest game: last year's title game in Nashville.

Media Circus: How WrestleMania got traction at ESPN — It was the announcement heard round the WWE universe. On March 24, after months of speculation, former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar announced that he had ruled out a return to mixed martial arts and would instead re-sign a three-year deal with the WWE.

Women's Final Four preview: Can anyone beat UConn? — TAMPA, Fla.-On Old Water Street in Tampa's airy Channel District, across the street from the site of the Women's Final Four, the Tampa Bay History Center is currently running an exhibit on Pirates in Modern Culture, an ode to the swashbuckling Buccaneers who gained fame by stealing the treasure of others.

ESPN will not renew the contract of Bob Knight

UConn coach Geno Auriemma rips men's college basketball — College Basketball Though the television ratings for the NCAA tournament have been exceptional this year-CBS/Turner has averaged 9.9 million viewers for the tournament, the highest average viewership in 22 years-there have been plenty of commentators, writers and fans who lament the quality of the game at the moment.

@Reaves9 Not only would I bet my mortgage on that number, I'd bet yours too. And then you'd thank me afterward.
