It appears the full, 68-team 2016 NCAA Tournament bracket has leaked.
The Selection Show is currently airing on CBS and we’ve only seen two of the regions. However, the entire bracket seems to have leaked on Twitter.
Here’s the full, 68-team bracket, which seems to be entirely accurate.

This, obviously, is a major disaster for CBS.
The Selection Show is two hours for the first time this year and the change was a clear attempt to improve the overall ratings, as many people would change the channel to ESPN after the bracket was released within the first 30 minutes or so.
People can do that now.
The Selection Show is continuing to air on CBS and is set to run until 7:30 p.m. There are still two more regions to be unveiled on the show.
The NCAA Tournament is set to start on Tuesday, when the First Four games begin in Dayton, Ohio. Two games will be played on Tuesday and another two on Wednesday.
The First Round begins on Thursday at noon, with 16 games being played. The First Round will continue on Friday with another 16 games, with 16 more combined on Saturday and Sunday.
The Final Four is set to take place in Houston this season.
