In the 1970s, NBC was acquiring all of the games played at Wrigley Field, including the World Series and the League Championship Series. They hoped to increase viewership and profit by adding more games to their schedule. In 1957, NBC acquired 11 Milwaukee Braves games and two Pittsburgh Pirates games. This was followed by the acquisition of the Washington Senators and Chicago Cubs games. In 1961, NBC replaced Lindsy Nelson as the announcer for these games.

In 2007, NBC was forced to drop its coverage of a dozen games. They wanted Joe Garagiola to call all of the games. This decision was made after a series of lawsuits from NBC.

NBC has since signed a new eight-year deal with the league.

There are two broadcast networks for baseball: the CBS-TV and the NBC-TV.
The CBS TV network also has a doubleheader this week. Six of the 11 games on Sunday are televised on TBS. Its main draw is the AFC North. The Bengals play the Chargers in the early game, while the Ravens play the Steelers in the late game at 4:25 PM. The Bengals, who will be playing against the Steelers, have the best chance of unseating the Ravens. The Chargers’ matchups could potentially win the series, but the Bengals are playing for a shootout.
