For more than two decades, college basketball fans have known to tune in to CBS for the men's Final Four games.
Well, folks, get ready to have your world turned upside down. Or at least part of your world, part of the time as CBS and TBS begin to start sharing the Final Four.
CBS and Turner Sports have a 14-year deal with the NCAA for the broadcast rights of the men's tournament. For the first three years of that contract, every game of the first three rounds was shown on either CBS or one of three Turner channels -- TBS, TNT and truTV -- and everything from the Elite Eight on has been shown on CBS.
That arrangement seems to have worked out well, with this year's tournament drawing the event's highest ratings in 19 years. But now things are going to get a little more complicated, according to an announcement Tuesday by the networks.
