Who’s Going to the Big Dance? Where to Watch the 2018 NCAA March Madness Selection Show
For the first time in a long time, the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament field won’t be announced on CBS. This year, the honor of announcing the brackets goes to TBS.
TBS has the exclusive live first-time announcement of the tournament teams and matchups with the 2018 NCAA March Madness Selection Show, airing Sunday, March 11, at 6/5c. The two-hour special airs in front of a live audience at Turner’s studio in Atlanta and will also air on NCAA March Madness Live.
Also new this year, all 68 teams in the tournament will be announced at the beginning of the show, followed by the release of the regions, seedings and first-round opponents. Hosts Ernie Johnson and Greg Gumbel will be joined by analysts Clark Kellogg, Charles Barkley, Seth Davis and Kenny Smith in Atlanta for analysis, discussion, interviews and reactions from teams. Selection Committee Chair Bruce Rasmussen joins Adam Zucker from CBS Studios in New York to discuss the challenges in the selection process.
If two hours of bracketology isn’t enough, Turner Sports and CBS Sports have a four-hour Social Madness preshow on Sunday beginning at 2/1c leading up to the selection show. Social Madness is available exclusively on official March Madness platforms across YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, along with NCAA.com and Bleacher Report.
Who will create #MarchMadness memories this year?
