You're not watching the Olympics either?


I am sick of avoiding Olympic results on the Internet in order to be suprised watching NBC's awful, canned programming every night. What was NBC thinking? Don't they realize that showing the Olympics on six-hour delay is a ridiculous idea? NBC sucks!

Oy. I couldn't agree more. But I have promised myself that I will not watch American Idol this year. Okay, I watched the auditions....but that's it!

You're not watching the olympics at 3am? I know you love the figure skating...but tell me this, when did ice "dancing" become an olympic event? Sunday's three falls where worth the watch! Last night I literally watched paint dry rather than nbc's coverage....sheesh

I simply can't watch the tape-delay dull-commentary Olympics. With this new-fangled thing called "the internet," folks get to see results damned quick, and NBC's ratings apparently suck.

Their intent was to parlay all the viewership into Nascar. Count up the Nascar references they made.

I think I agree with your opinion of the NBC coverage of the Olympics. Alas, when my cable service was changed and my tv reprogrammed, I no longer recieve NBC...(I thought that was supposed to be one of the standards?) So I watched most of it on CBC (canadian broudcast channel)....not much better there either.
