msupf: I clearly did not take the proper drugs or dosages of said drugs to have watched the closing ceremonies.


Good luck trying to titrate the buzz for the next hour. Personally, I'm DVRing and going to bed.

Good night, you farkers have made The NBC shiatstorm Olympic Viewing Experience fun.

topcon: Rio is the least interesting location for me of any Olympics venue in recent history. Rio, bleh.


I don't know about that, isn't everyone in Brazil half naked and hyper sexual? I'm thinking the Rio games could be the most family UNfriendly in recent history, especially the opening/closing ceremonies. If NBC keeps their censoring to a minimal, it could be their best tv ratings ever. All Xuxas all the time!

If you want to know how hilariously dark British humour is, this is the trailer that lead immediatly out of the closing ceremony in the UK.


Camera pans down from Olympic Park into Ripper Street, a new crime drama about a 19thC serial rapist.

After tearing down the shanty towns to make way for Rio's preparations to host the 2016 Olympics, all the drugs were cop counted and funneled to the creators of Rio's whole trippy routine. Don't do the hard drugs, kids, let this abomination be a lesson!

NBC may up the ante in 2016 by force-feeding us a shiatty sitcom pilot every night throughout the Olympics.

Obscure music question: Can anybody tell me what the songs the rapper BNegao and the guy in the white suit with the gold vest, Seu Jorge, were doing? Funky as hell, I wanna buy some. Seu Jorge's Brazilian website refuses to let me sample the tunes -- "not available in your country" -- so I can't even brute-force search.

Nekozuki85: SPOILERS FOR US WEST COASTERS, JEEZ!!!!!


/fark NBC and East Coast crap


Only the East coast is important prole..

Never spoil it for New York. All others are encouraged to suck New York's dick on FARK.

Thats the way things have always been and the way that they will always be. You'll get over it.

I think we need to leave 2012 flaming bags of poo on the front porch of 30 Rock.

Remember folks, the "Welcome Home" party begins Monday morning on "Today". Let's get to the live broadcast and hold up "Fark you NBC" signs.

after watching that show for the first 2 commercials breaks, i can not imagine a world where laughter is possible. i have switched to some celtic womans group on PBS who are singing of the sadness of the irish famines. and yet, it still lightens my heart more than animal practice.

Gosling: geom_00: E-Brake: Nobody is going to see the finale unless they stay up til 3am. Unreal.

No. There is only about 35 min left of the CC...well....35 min that NBC is showing anyway.

And remember, some of that 35 minutes is the closing credits they bewilderingly already ran TWO DAYS AGO.


Hopefully the remaining 35 minutes will be shown first at midnight, then they'll repeat the whole thing after, rather than start the repeat at midnight. I think. Can't tell from the cable guide what the heck they're doing.

During the worst closing ceremonies ever whilst NBC makes us tear at our very eyes in angst?

I think not!

Holy crap, this is the greatest swerve ever. I'm half expecting NBC to tell us that Mick Foley wins the title on ESPN because that'd put butts in the seats.

Tape delay for EST and then more tape delay for PST.

Still watched thru BBC with Expat Shield, It's all just so stupid.

Actually, you've got me wondering why they didn't break it into a two-parter, with the conclusion being showed Monday night.

Yeah, I thought maybe the London2012 site would actually, y'know, have a list of performers and stuff, or maybe their websites would say something. Guess I'll just have to troll YouTube and hope some kind Brazilians post the clips and identify the items.

Of course, NBC ain't gonna do it. I'm surprised they didn't cut all of it "since nobody in the USA speaks Portuguese anyway."

I refer to this as the Casey Kasem "These Guys Are From England And Who Gives A shiat" Rationale.

Local news is doing a story on Sochi, and apparently there wasn't even a supermarket in Sochi let alone any facilities, like ski runs on the local mountains, when it was given the winter Olympics. And they're spending $50 billion on it.

I'm off to bed but I was going to submit a headline for the swerve, however, when you search for NBC cuts closing ceremony you get "NBC cuts closing ceremony....to air Marriage Ref"

So this decision got them slammed 2 years ago for a show that completely bombed AND they decided to do it again.

It's all a big ego boost for Putin and Russia.

So that means they're going to be dicks like China was in 2008.

Everybody should go admire the pure, crystalline hatred. Go on, now. Facebook. NBC. We'll wait right here.

You wanna really laugh, go check out the story of Squaw Valley, California. It wasn't even a PLACE. It was (and is) a ski resort. It barely has a zip code to this day.
