It's going to be Red Sox vs. the Tigers in the American League Championship Series, and the shift in round also means a change in which network you'll have to turn to for your playoff needs. TBS is no longer responsible for carrying any of the AL games, so steel yourself for listening to FOX announcers from here on out.

Below, you can find the start time, network, and even the home team for every scheduled and potential ALCS contest.

Yes, that does indeed mean the Tigers or Red Sox will have represented the American League in exactly half of the last 10 World Series -- this kind of shared success is no surprise, though, historically.
