    Universal HD has some too as seen in the link above from theshadow. I have only been watching on the HD channels and hope that I am not missing anything too good.

    Re: Olympic TV Coverage

    The online coverage provided by NBC is downright pathetic. No reason every event shouldn't be available live over the internet.

    Re: Olympic TV Coverage

    CNBC has been the best channel thus far. The hockey and curling (other than the US team) have been great.

    Re: Olympic TV Coverage

    You'd think that with having 4 different channels to carry the Olympics on, NBC would (or should) show everything live. Take tonight, for instance. After the news, the Skeleton runs that took place earlier today are going to be shown on NBC. Personally, I'm much more interested in that than watching ice dancing, and I would think most men feel the same way.

    Put the other nightiime events on a different channel; I can't imagine that anything on CNBC or MSNBC (especially MSNBC) would get anywhere near the ratings as an Olympic telecast would bring.

    Then again, NBC's ratings so far have been through the roof, their worst night so far has been better than any night of 2006 games.

    i have heard from the radio heads that they are looking for the woman viewers.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    It is odd that the US mens hockey team hasn't had a game on NBC yet. Hell, Sunday's game v. Canadia is on MSNBC.

    Well what do we have here - skeleton!
