The New Selection Show Format Is Getting Crushed

This year's new NCAA Tournament Selection Show format is getting panned.

This is the first year the Selection Show is on TBS, as opposed to its usual home at CBS. The format has been changed as well.

Instead of revealing the top four seeds first and then the bracket by region, the new show listed the auto-qualifiers and then began revealing all 68 teams in alphabetical order.

Did we mention there is a studio audience and the audio is messed up? Yeah, this is brutal.

The media is destroying the new format on Twitter. This is just a slice of the reaction.

Executives at CBS/Turner: stop messing with what works!

We haven't even gotten the full bracket yet. Please let this be a one-year experiment.
