Selection Sunday 2014: Time, TV schedule for NCAA Selection Show

USA TODAY Sports

The selection show rarely changes, but it doesn't need to.

Selection Sunday is upon us, and the season-long fight for the 32 automatic berths and 36 at-large bids will be settled by the time the selection committee finalizes its picks and hands them over to CBS to reveal to national television audience.

CBS will take to the airwaves at 6 p.m. ET to announce the field of 68, with the final game of the season presumably having just concluded: the SEC tournament final, which starts at 3:30 p.m.. The show will first reveal the four No. 1 seeds, before revealing the rest of the field one region at a time.

CBS's selection show will last an hour. Greg Gumbel will anchor the broadcast as the host, joined by Clark Kellogg, Doug Gottlieb and Seth Davis. Ron Wellman, chairman of the selection committee, will also make an appearance. When the selection show ends, the coverage will shift to to TruTV—the channel you haven't watched since last year's tournament—for another hour of in-depth bracket analysis. The Selection Sunday on truTV will be hosted by Ernie Johnson. Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Gary Parrish will serve as analysts.

The First Four opens the 2014 NCAA tournament in Dayton, Ohio on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the field of 64 kicks off the best weekend in sports Thursday.

Time: 6 p.m. ET

Channel: CBS
