LOS ANGELES — The entirety of the National League playoffs will be televised by TBS. That includes the broadcast crew of Brian Anderson, Dennis Eckersley and Joe Simpson, along with reporter Lauren Shehadi calling the Dodgers’ NLDS against the NL wild card game winner.

TBS announced their television plan on Monday, with Ernie Johnson, Ron Darling, and Sam Ryan slated to call the Cubs-Nationals NLDS and the wild card game on Wednesday night in Phoenix between the Diamondbacks and Rockies.

The Dodgers play the winner in the NLDS, which begins Friday night at Dodger Stadium. Game 1 is scheduled for 7:31 p.m. PT, with Game 2 slated for 6:38 p.m., as the Dodgers got prime time billing for each of the first two games of the series.

TBS will also have pre- and postgame coverage every day there is a National League playoff game, with host Casey Stern joined in studio by a trio of former Dodgers as analysts — Pedro Martinez, Gary Sheffield and Jimmy Rollins.

Friday’s TBS coverage begins with pregame coverage from the studio at 4 p.m., followed by Game 1 of the Nationals-Cubs NLDS at 4:30 p.m. That series will be called by Johnson, Darling, and Ryan.

The NLCS will be called by Anderson, Darling and Ryan.

Online streaming of the games — with television provider authentication — is available on and the Watch TBS app.
