    Starting in 1956, CBS cobbled together ten regional networks to televise NFL games across America. Eleven of the 12 teams - all but Cleveland - signed on with CBS. For 38 consecutive years, CBS televised NFL games through the 1970 season and the National Football Conference after the merger. After the 1993 season, FOX won the rights to the NFC and NBC continued with the American Football Conference. When NBC's contract expired, CBS won the rights to televise AFC games.
    .
    With the 2009 season, the NFL on CBS celebrated 50 seasons on the air. The milestone 5,000th telecast came on the afternoon of November 28, 2010 in a Week 12 game between the Miami Dolphins and the Oakland Raiders.moreless

    The White Shadow

    CBS (ended 1981)
    A knee injury forced Chicago Bulls forward Ken Reeves into retirement and he was talked into a coaching career by his old friend and teammate Jim Willis. That was the premise behind TV's White Shadow. Jim was a principal at Los Angeles' Carver High School, nestled right inside an inner-city, working-class neighborhood…and though Reeves was new to the world of clipboards and de facto paternal responsibilities, coaching soon appeared to be his true calling. The White Shadow was created by TV producer (and big basketball fan) Bruce Paltrow. It was about the sport, of course, but it was also about a growing up in a tough neighborhood at a tough time. The kids on the team had to face drugs, gangs, race hostility, learning disabilities, financial hardship, and more-so it wasn't all towel rattail fights in the locker room. Whatever the dilemma, Coach Reeves figured into the solution, be it through good advice or hands-on intervention. His players trusted him, and given the general mistrust they had for people older than them, that was really saying something. In the 1979-80 season, b-baller Curtis Jackson was shot while standing in a liquor store that was being held up. That was also the year that a load of players "graduated" from high school and moved on…and a new batch of actors came in to take their place. In its third season, the show lightened up--there were less episodes that dealt with serious topics, but the season still had it's moments, such as teacher burnout ("Burnout") and unfair treatment by law enforcement ("Cops"). On the court or off, the young men on the Carver High basketball team were a funny and eclectic group, and their coach, their "white shadow," was always there to lend an assist.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

    The Super Bowl is the biggest football game of the year. Each year since 1967 two teams battle it out on the gridiron for the NFL's most prized possession, the Lombardi Trophy, which was named after legendary Green Bay coach Vince Lombardi, the winner of the first two Super Bowls.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers hold the record for most Super Bowl victories with six. The Dallas Cowboys have the most appearances in The Super Bowl with eight.

    Four teams have never made it to the Super Bowl; they are the Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Houston Texans.moreless

    For the first time, Pete Young (Jeremy Sumpter) takes a risk--perhaps the only risk of his young life--when he applies for and lands his dream job as a batboy for the New York Empires. The problem is that his single mother, Lynne (Mare Winningham) has no idea what he's up to. Until now, he's been the golden boy while his rebellious older sister, Betsy (Kirsten Storms), has always been in the doghouse. Pete attends a strict Catholic high school where he hangs out with his best friend, Mike (Dan Byrd), who hopes to cash in on his friend's new position in life. On the job, Pete becomes a member of a new family that includes Conrad Dean (Dean Cain), the team's captain and star third baseman and one of the boy's all-time idols, who takes on the role of an older brother. Also in the clubhouse are Pete's boss, Lou Russo (Christopher Lloyd), a gruff but fair equipment manager who becomes a much-needed father figure; Carlos Tavares (John Ortiz), a rookie who believes that Pete is his good luck charm, and Jose Marquez (JD Pardo), the Empires' territorial head batboy. Pete is over the moon at being part of his favorite team but he must still balance life at home and life in the big leagues as he faces the moral dilemmas and curve balls that are thrown his way. (CBS Press Release) NOTE: The show is inspired by Matt McGough's experiences as a batboy for a professional baseball team.

    2009 Champs is a collection of videos replaying all the games from North Carolina's 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship. College basketball's 2009 season was magical, as long as you were rooting for North Carolina.

Favorites going into the 65 team tournament in March, coach Roy Williams had his team well prepared. Led by Tyler Hansbrough, Wayne Ellington and Ty Lawson, UNC mowed down potential spoilers Radford and LSU to reach the sweet 16, where they dispatched Gonzaga and Oklahama for a trip to the Final Four.. The Tarheels worked their high powered offense with precision to defeat Villanova for a date with Michigan State in the Championship game. The final contest proved not to be much of a contest at all, as UNC took apart the Spartans 89-72, behind a balanced effort and a standout performance from Ellington, who was named tournament MVP. It was a truly dominating year; catch every minute with 2009 Champs, a commercial-free, high def replay of all the games, and relive this historic title run!moreless
