Better yet, you want your NCAA Tournament coverage airing on MTV? It could happen, CBS Sports president Sean McManus said. If the United States goes to war with Iraq and major developments occur during the NCAA Tournament, CBS might pre-empt its basketball telecasts. If that happens, McManus said CBS probably would shift the games to MTV, VH1 or TNN. Those cable networks are owned by Viacom, as is CBS. "That's a decision you have to make at the time of the crisis," McManus said recently. "If there is a war going on and there are important news elements to cover, that will take precedent over a sporting event." The NCAA Tournament begins March 20 and 21 with 16 first-round games each day. ____________________________________________________________ Well at least they would have some good programing for once, since they don't show videos anymore. if "Washington is a Hollywood for ugly people," then, considering the remarks coming out of Tinseltown about Iraq, "Hollywood is a Washington for the simpleminded."

Originally posted by brick Well at least they would have some good programing for once, since they don't show videos anymore. They sure in the hell dont. Everytime I turn it on, it's always either some Road Rules/Real World all weekend long marathon, or some spin-off version of TRL. Speaking of which, is Carson Daly gone from MTV? And is his crappy show still on after Conan? I wish I could work the random images thingy.

I believe they had an NCAA Tournament qualifying game on TNN a couple of years ago. "I just got pinned by a friggin twelve-year-old." Kurt Angle

I think the first year of the play-in game(i.e. the "Thanks for showing, here's a # 1 seed" game) was on TNN before the NCAA got smart and dumped it off on to ESPN.

The most recent plan states that TNN will pick up the games if they get pre-empted. Ole Anderson booking is a weapon of self inflicted mass destruction.
