    NBC to lose money on winter olympics

    CBC News - Money - NBC expects to lose money on Olympics

    Can NBC do anything right?

    Mess up late night and only have a few shows worth watching, now this.

    Re: NBC to lose money on winter olympics

    Is that figuring in potential spike in viewership for other programs from advertising during the games?

    Also, does anyone know if NBC is doing the multi-channel blitz for the winter games that they did for the summer games. I want to know if I'm going to be able to watch curling on CNBC or Biathlon on Bravo.

    I would bet they are. Cox has a few channels added that appear to be dedicated to the Olympics.

    sweet! Love me some olympics, but I absolutely hated it when you used to have to sit through non-stop figure skating coverage when you knew there was something bad-*** like luge or cross-country skiiing relays going on.
