New NCAA Tournament Selection Show debuts with audio glitch
Turner Sports was excited about debuting a new Selection Show on Sunday, but it got off to a bad start.
The new show was shown on TBS rather than its traditional home on CBS. What became apparent immediately was that the audio for the show was out of sync. When hosts Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson spoke, the audio was not in sync with their mouths. This nuisance was noticed by multiple viewers.
Audio is out of sync and there's a live audience. Good start for TBS.

Audio sync still off. Fake cheering from this audience. Yeah, this is great.

Is the audio sync off for everyone or is it my TV? #MarchMadness

Here’s a look at it:
This is (really bad audio-visual sync) March. pic.twitter.com/xWes8V2ZAc

The good news is Turner listened to fans and announced the teams that had made the tournament very early in the show. The bad news is the show began with the audio glitch, which was finally fixed after about 10 minutes.
While this was a bad start, we’ve certainly seen much worse.
