And just like that, the one slice of non-football season Sunday happiness has been bludgeoned to death in front of our eyes.
In years past, Selection Sunday was an entertainingly nerve-racking few hours as you wait and see if your bubble team made it into the field for a chance to be the tourney’s Cinderella. Sure, the matchups mattered, but it was more about seeing if your team would get a chance or be left out in the cold.
This year, however, the show moves from CBS to TBS and the powers that be have apparently changed up the format so that all 68 teams are dropped on you like a steamy, hot shit.
Oh, good; at least there’s a live studio audience. That’s what I was really worried about.
Who approved this? Oprah?
Fire whoever made this decision. This shit should be run by M. Night Shyamalan. “Marquette, you’ve made the tournament…PSYCH! Your campus is actually about to be attacked by a pack of rabid dogs that are unable to be killed because they harness the soul of an undead three-year-old girl from 1642.” What a twist. That’s just damn good TV.
Finding out if a bubble team makes it or not is the best part. The reaction cameras are either amazing or soul-crushing, in which case they are also amazing.
This seriously might be the worst update since new Snapchat. Don’t make the same mistake, TBS. Change it back before Kylie tweets about it..
