Selection Sunday: CBS Selection Show Time, Hosts Announced

Okay, so maybe “announced” is a bit much, since it’s not like this is really earth-shattering news that we couldn’t already guess ourselves, but when it comes in a tweet from Richard Deitsch, followed up by commentary from Fang’s Bites, I treat it with the appropriate levels of gravitas.

Here is the big news:

Greg Gumbel, Greg Anthony and Seth Davis will host the NCAA Selection Show on CBS on Sun at 6PM.


Greg Anthony, Greg Gumbel, and Seth Davis will host CBS Selection Show this Sunday.

Note that the 6:00 PM is Eastern Time, so it’ll be here 5:00 here in my fair Central-timed burgh of Dallas.

A notable name missing from the March Madness 2012 Selection Show crew is Charles Barkley, but Ken Fang let us know that Barkley’s presence on the Selection Show was never really a possibility.

No surprise that Charles Barkley will not be in the Selection Show. CBS/Turner said as much last year.

I’m fine with this. The Selection Show is about the nitty-gritty details of brackets being revealed and fun videos of teams celebrating the announcement. Barkley has nothing to add to such proceedings.

His presence will be felt, however, once the brackets are announced the analysis begins.

Via Richard Deitsch:

G. Gumbel, Charles Barkley, K. Smith, G. Anthony & Seth Davis will be on truTV at 7PM Sun. for a new bracket show. Going against ESPN here.

Frankly, this totally underwhelms. I didn’t think Barkley provided much value last year because he just doesn’t know the teams very well. Greg Anthony and Seth Davis are okay, but I prefer to get my bracket breakdowns from Jay Bilas, so I’ll muster up the courage and patience to tolerate Digger Phelps and Doug Gottlieb on ESPN for the morsels of insight Bilas will drop when it’s his turn to speak on ESPN.

It’s Tuesday of Selection Sunday Week. If you’re not already…get excited!
