TBS finally strikes LDS gold

TV executives will tell you that nothing is better for ratings than long series, no matter what the matchups are.

Hence Turner endured some wicked bad luck in its first four seasons covering MLB's division series round.

Out of 16 series, the network got only one five-gamer.

This season, three out of four series have gone the distance, starting with the Tigers-Yankees showdown Thursday night.

TBS deserved a break, and so did fans of playoff drama.
