On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Although ABC and other networks have long broadcast college football weekly, this marks the first time any have made it an official part of the primetime schedule. ABC focuses its Saturday night broadcast on the biggest and most popular college football teams such as Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Southern California. Brent Musburger hosts as the play by play man on Saturday Night College Football on ABC. Since the 2007 season the show has been called ESPN Saturday Night Football.
