The 2011-2012 PBA season will consist of 18 telecasts, all to be aired on ESPN, and will begin December 4, 2011 with the GEICO World Bowling Tour Finals. The season will finish on April 15, 2012 with the PBA's flagship tournament, the PBA Tournament of Champions.

The actual season began a month before any national telecasts. On November 4, 2011, the World Series of Bowling got underway, where a number of these events were recorded. An event denoted with "(WSOB)" below indicates that event was contested and recorded during the World Series of Bowling to be aired on the date specified.

The first live broadcast of the season will take place January 29, 2012, when we'll see the finals of the USBC Masters. Rounding out the four major championships are the PBA World Championship, with five tape-delayed broadcasts devoted to it (16 finalists are divided into four pods, and one show will be dedicated to each pod, after which the winners of each pod will compete in the finals to be aired on January 15, 2012) and the 69th U.S. Open, the finals of which will be shown live on February 6, 2012.

Calling the action will again be ESPN's announce team of Rob Stone and PBA Hall of Famer Randy Pedersen.

Some events will be contested this year but not aired nationally, a few of which will be exclusive to PBA Xtra Frame, the PBA's subscription video service. For the complete list of PBA Tour events, televised or not, see the 2011-2012 PBA Tour schedule.
