Dammit, did I miss rhythmic gymnastics last night after I went to bed at 10:00?

Spoiler: Tiger Woods sucked today.

Well I won't mention the diving results, but I get the distinct impression that most divers are men's men. There's going to be a lot of ass-cracking with wet towels in the Olympic Village tonight.

I wonder what monstrosity will NBC use as filler tonight?

I doubt NBC will be showing the best one because it came from a poor performer. About half of his ass was out of his speedos coming out of the pool.

I really don't mean to be sexy when i say this, but for a gold medal game, those womyn basketball players looked an awful lot like a pick-up game at our rec center.

Sounds like problems with breath control. Try talking until your lungs feel empty, you sound that way.

They aired the individual finals this afternoon.

As for what's airing right now:
If I wanted to watch a World War II retrospective I'd turn to the History Channel 10 years ago.
 
2012-08-11 08:11:00 PM
Oh, FFS. Another 30-minute feature instead of SHOWING THE F-ING OLYMPICS!!!

Living WWII veterans truly are the last untapped demographic of primetime television.
 
2012-08-11 08:15:59 PM
Nobody better spoil what happens at the end of this segment. I'm on the edge of my seat, can't wait to see how it ends!
 
2012-08-11 08:18:08 PM
The bar I'm at just turned off the Olympics because they weren't actually showing the Olympics.

Dear God. That makes looking at nothing but Rugbyjock photoshops for an entire week seem like a sex-fueled night with a Victoria's Secret model.

Agreed. NBC needs to get to their time-delayed broadcast. I want to see if Usain Bolt and the Jamaican track team can demolish the world record for the 4x100m.

there their theyre: Kenny B: Spoiler. Braves beating Mets 9-1 in the 3rd.

.......OR DID THEY?

they only lost the battle
 
2012-08-11 08:24:18 PM
Did someone forget to tell NBC that filler goes in the MIDDLE and not at the BEGINNING? Not that they need filler at all if they'd show a wider variety of sports.

I stayed up last night to watch the Women's Hammer Throw and that showed just a few throws at the very end of the night segment. Maybe 5 minutes of that sport buried in the middle of the night while they are showing this non-sports documentary at the beginning of the night's Olympics coverage.

This is absurd.

I guess they feel that you'd watch streaming online or one of their cable channels if you actually wanted to watch Olympic sports.

Judging by how things are currently going in Europe I think the Germans were planning for the really long term...

The Nazis are hiding in their secret bases in Neu Schwabenland Antarctica, far off Patagonian hideaways in Argentina, and of course,their ultra-mega-hyper-36 levels beyond top secret moon base. It must be true because the space rays from the Grays tell me so. That and it was also confirmed on the Internet. And the Internet is serious business.
/killing time before NBC does something interesting
 
2012-08-11 08:27:41 PM
If I wanted to see this, I'd tune to the history Channel. There is ZERO reason for filler. Today's Track and Field alone could fill the entire prime time show.
 
2012-08-11 08:28:35 PM
I just posted this on NBC's Facebook:

"When planning the TV coverage of the next Olympics, please don't just look at the Nielson ratings and decide you have the US viewers what they wanted. Look instead at viewers' comments and realize that your coverage was an abject failure. Please do better next time."

To be fair, the first American to die in WWII was an Olympian and was even a flag bearer.

Leo's great. He won the silver with a terrific sprint at the end.

but yeah, funny pre-race rituals

getting flack because he had an American and Mexican flag on his victory lap

They show this history crap when they could be showing some real action like handball!!!

/we already know how this turns out
//that is why we go to school
///someone said these have to be in 3s

About to watch the Modern Pentathlon horse section. It's the hilarious part where people who can't ride maim horses and kill spectators.

/hoping for carnage.
 
2012-08-11 08:33:19 PM
NBC's done some incredibly stupid things throughout these Olympics. This may be the most egregious. Hell, they probably are patting themselves on the back because they think this makes up for snubbing the 7/7 memorial during the opening ceremonies. That just makes it worse.

That took all of what 2 mins?

I'm at the bar and can't hear the TV, why are they showing a WWII documentary?
 
2012-08-11 08:34:41 PM
Will this take up the entire first hour?

I thought the Dream Team documentary last night was bad but at the very least it had an Olympic connection.

Are they going to show anything before I give up and leave?

You know they make it sound like it was so awful the Germans bombed cities and killed civilians...like we didn't do the same to dresden, Berlin, Hamburg, Tokyo, hiroshima, nagasaki, etc

True, and I'm just as annoyed, but pointing out that there is an Olympic connection.... just extremely slim.

Am I on the wrong channel? Is Brokaw going to anchoring the 4x100m? Show some sports.

Britain is planning a major terrorist attack on the Space Needle in 2025 just so they can snub the memorial at the Opening Ceremony of the Seattle Olympics in 2028.

consider this: I'm at the bar and can't hear the TV, why are they showing a WWII documentary?


Because Brokaw has a hard-on for WWII and he convinced someone that this was a good idea.

It looks like WWII. That's twenty minutes to use productively to find and download pictures of hot Olympians. Or just hot people in general.
/You could go to a gym
//But that takes 26 minutes
