The Cubs released their 2011 regular season TV schedule today.

You'll be pleased to know that Opening Day will be on WGN -- that's not been the case in some recent seasons -- so everyone will be able to see it.

Overall, 60 games will be on WGN; 81 games on CSN or CSN+; 8 games on WCIU (yeah, I know, if you're outside Chicago you can't see these, but some of them may be picked up by ESPN) and 8 on Fox. That adds up to 157; the other five games are Sunday 5/22 at the Red Sox (ESPN), three other Sundays (6/12 vs. Phillies, 6/19 vs. Yankees and 8/21 vs. Cardinals) that are possible ESPN games but will be on WGN if not on ESPN, and Saturday 9/17 at the Astros, which will be on WGN or Fox.

After the jump, the complete TV schedule. All times listed are Central.
