The telecast aired following the 2018 NCAA Selection Show on TBS.[4] Taylor Swift's music video for her single "Delicate" premiered at the show.[5] This was also the last year that TBS, TNT, and truTV simulcast the show, as the show would move back to broadcast television the next year, as Fox would take over in 2019.
