EARLY BIRD: CBS announced that the Navy-Notre Dame game scheduled for Sept. 1 in Dublin, Ireland, “will kick off at 2 p.m. local time -- and therefore 8 a.m. for any viewers in the Central Time Zone.” CBS’ Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson and Tracy Wolfson “will handle broadcast duties from Aviva Stadium” (CHICAGOTRIBUNE.com, 4/16).
READY TO RUMBLE: WWE's WrestleMania XXVIII “set a new pay-per-view purchase record, with 1.3 million homes worldwide buying the show.” The record “beats 2007's WrestleMania 23 as the most-watched WWE pay-per-view of all time.” The mark is “especially impressive given the growth of illegal pirate streams over the last five years” (NEWSDAY.com, 4/16).
