    Showtime
    Inside the NFL is one of the longest running, Emmy award winning sports shows on cable television today. Each episode has some of the most exciting player profiles, interviews and footage as well as expert comentary from past players from around the NFL. Current hosts include James Brown, Cris Collinsworth, Phil Simms and Warren Sapp who provide the in depth coverage that fans have come to expect since the shows long history. Inside the NFL began in 1977 with its original hosts, Al Meltzer and Chuck Bednarik, but is wasn't until 1979 that the show started to take form, with the hosts that would be on the show for the next 22 seasons, being Len Dawson and Nick Bounichonti. In 1990, Cris Collinsworth joined the cast of the show, and the three-man setup was there for 5 more seasons until they added some others to fill that 4th spot, whether it was Jimmy Johnson for his lone season in 1996, or Jerry Glanville, who was there from 1997 to 2001. In 2000, Dan Marino joined the cast after retiring from 17 years in the NFL, and was immediately a fan favorite. After the 2001 season and the shows 25th season, Len Dawson, Nick Bounichonti, and Jerry Glanville left the show because in Len and Nick's case, they were getting too old and Cris Collinsworth took the lead host role. In 2002, Bob Costas and Cris Carter came on the show, and joined Cris Collinsworth and Dan Marino. That foursome went from 2002-2007, ending with what was supposed to be the last ever episode of Inside the NFL, on February 6th 2008. Then for the 2008 NFL Season, Inside the NFL was picked up by Showtime, and the current cast for that show is James Brown, Phil Simms, Cris Collinsworth, and Warren Sapp. Historical segments from the show included the Cover Story, Where are They Now, NFL Crosstalk, Teeing Off, and now there are segments called Grab Bag, King for a Day, Phil's Pet Peeves, and Ask Warren Anything. Inside the NFL is now going into it's 33rd season and it now the longest running sports show on TV, and the second longest non-soap oprea show TV only behind The Price is Right.moreless

    March Madness returns with live coverage of the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. CBS has been televising the Tournament since 1982 and was the exclusive broadcaster for all games (except the Tuesday play-in game) from 1991 through 2010. The only exception was 2003 when the daytime first round games were moved to ESPN to accommodate CBS News' coverage of the Gulf War.

    The 2011 Tournament marked a new-era of television coverage as the $10.8 billion, 14-year contract with CBS and Turner kicked in. The 67 games will be spread across four networks (CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV) allowing for all games to be televised nationally.

    The Tournament, one of the most popular events on the U.S. sporting calendar, is a single knockout tournament staged annually at various sites across America. The field, increased to 68 teams (from 65) for 2011, is made up of 32 automatic bids for conference tournament winners and 36 at-large bids as determined by a selection committee. The committee also determines the seeding for each participant. The tournament takes place over three weeks beginning in mid-March.

    There are four geographic regions with 16 teams each and the winner of each region qualifies for the national semi-finals, which are better known as the Final Four. During the first week, there are two First Four games (which reduce each region to 16 teams) each on Tuesday and Wednesday, 16 second round games each on Thursday and Friday and eight third round games each on Saturday and Sunday which reduce the field to 16 teams. The 16 teams are better known as the Sweet 16. During the second week, there are four Regional semi-final games each on Thursday and Friday and two Regional final games each on Saturday and Sunday which determine the Final Four participants.

    During the third week, the National semi-finals are contested on Saturday night and the National Final on Monday night. This guide begins with the 1978 Tournament, as that was the first year in which all games were televised on one network or another.

    The first HDTV telecasts were the 2000 Final Four and National Championship games. From 2001 through 2006, a limited number of games were shown in HDTV and since 2007 all games have been televised in HD. The telecast format is shown in the Recap of each Tournament game for the 2000-2006 seasons.moreless

    ESPN (ended 2005)
    Three aspiring gamblers team up to attempt to bring down the "King of Vegas," Don Everest. "The Matador" has achieved that nickname through countless victories, mostly against those interested in bringing him down. But when a man named Seymour (Kenneth Walsh - The Practice, Judge Harrod) comes knocking, Eddie (Eddie Cibrian - Invasion, Russell Varon), Clark (Todd Williams - Third Watch, Detective Barlow), and Miami (Kristen Lehman - Killer Instinct, Detective Danielle Carter) decide to attempt to take down "The Matador" and all his glory. Everest is good buddies with the president of the Colorado Casino, Bart "Lowball" Rogers, or at least he tries to be. Together they call the shots at the casino, and sometimes that means inflicting pain on those considered threats in any way to "The Matador," "Lowball" or the casino in general. The series unfolds during nine episodes, revealing information from the character's pasts, and also the present day action of running a casino and trying to take down a legend. Character Guide: • Don "The Matador" Everest: The King of Vegas. "The Matador," having earned his nickname for taking on all of the bulls that try to slay him, is the undisputed champion of Texas Hold 'Em. He "wrote the book on the game," and the road to greatness goes through him. On his way to earning countless riches by mastering poker, "The Matador" amassed a loyal group of influential backers. Some believe that he uses this influence to rig the game and that he can't win on his own. But no one really knows for sure. One thing is certain ... The Matador is the most ruthless and feared player in town. • Eddie: The women find him handsome, charming and intuitive. He is one of the most gifted young poker players on tour. He's one of the new young guys of Texas Hold 'Em, and is looking to take down the old guard. Eddie, born to a -addicted father and an emotionally distant mother, turns to cards for his escape. He is looking to take down the big dog, "The Matador." • Miami: She's sexy, seductive, and as tough a poker player as any in Vegas. She desperately wants to take down The Matador for personal reasons. She had left the game not too long ago but now plans to make her triumphant return to the big show. • Clark: A degenerate gambler who is just as talented as Eddie. He has never lived up to his father's expectations and turned to poker as an escape. His quest to prove his father wrong is manifested in his many insecurites. He plans to rid himself of his family by sitting at the top of Vegas. • Nickel: He lost his only brother to an addiction and is out for sweet revenge. When his life spiraled out of control, he sued The Matador and The Colorado Casino. His brother, Wayne, had made a videotape in which he revealed all of the ways in which The Matador rigged games. He will stop at nothing to prove to everyone that The Matador is a con artist, not a poker champ. • Dee Everest Daddy's little girl? Hardly. This wild-child of Sin City is looking to have fun. But when you're the daughter of "The Matador," people tend to treat you with kid gloves. Makes it tough to earn a living, but she needs money to live a certain lifestyle. If "The Matador" keeps bankrolling Dee, will she and Eddie be able to maintain a real relationship, or is "The Matador" just using her to keep tabs on his new protégé? • Bart "Lowball" Rogers Bart "Lowball" Rogers is the president of The Colorado Casino and a longtime friend of "The Matador." These two conquered Las Vegas together, but it's clear that their old alliance is about to fold. He's under an enormous amount of pressure attempting to control the money and chaos from the current craze. But he's also a cagey, political animal, intent on convincing the owner of the casino that they need to operate on the up and up. One thing is clear ... "Lowball" will have to be one step ahead at all times if he plans to survive. FAQ: What does "tilt" mean?: "Tilt" is a well known term in Vegas. It essentially means off-kilter. When you're at the table, you're in the zone, and you have that edge. Then, all of a sudden, something happens that takes you off your game and that little thing is all it takes to lose in Vegas. (i.e.: a bad hit, too high a raise, etc.) Is this the first drama from ESPN?: No, it is the second. Playmakers was an EOE drama that debuted in 2003. It was a hit but the NFL, the league that it was essentially portraying, pressured ESPN to scrap it. Can a drama based on poker actually work?: There have been several movies based on poker that have been successes. The list includes: Rounders, The Cincinnati Kid, Maverick, and Luckytown. Is The Colorado Casino a real casino in Vegas?: No, The Colorado Casino, which most of the show action takes place in, is fictional. However, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) is a real event. It is held at Binions Horseshoe Casino in Vegas. Is the show filmed in Las Vegas?: It is actually filmed in a warehouse in Toronto, Canada.

The first NHL game to be televised on Canadian Broadcasting Company was a game in Montreal on Oct. 11, 1952 and the first Finals in 1953, which were broadcast in French on CBC Radio-Canada only in Quebec, perhaps only in the Montreal area. Rene Lecavalier was the play-by-play man and only the three games in Montreal were televised. English language telecasts began in 1954 with Danny Gallivan at the microphone. Danny was followed by Bill Hewitt and Bob Cole were the primary play-by-play announcers through the 2008 Finals. Beginning in 2009, Jim Hughson took over the play-by-play duties with Craig Simpson alongside for color commentary.
