    I thought it was hilarious how NBC was promoting Nathan Chen for prime time coverage right after he cratered his short program and ended up 17th. He will be in a very early skating group, so who knows how NBC will cover it. NBC has had to hype so many of these athletes that when they fail, it looks really bad. I feel bad for Chen because this was his first Olympics and he's only 18. Live and learn and come back in 4 years.

        Download the NBC sports app on a Roku or what have you, or go to their website, you can stream it there

      Hah, NBC clowns it up again. They cover Vonn in the women's Super G. When she falls out of contention and they figure they know who is going to be the winner, they cut away because heaven help us, we can't miss any of the figure skating. So what happens? A little known skier who's real specialty is snow boarding ends up pulling a huge upset. Did we get to see that live...of course not. NBC sucks.

        pretty poor tv coverage by nbc. I want to see a lot more events than just the ones the US is involved in. Namely, Curling, why no more Curling. They should have a Curling channel, all Curling, all day.

          I feel like NBC really pushes storylines over the athletic excellence. And it becomes a snooze-fest.

            Agreed. NBC is outdoing itself in crappy coverage this year. I tuned to NBCSN to watch what they had scheduled to be a late night curling replay. Hockey game went to overtime, which is fair enough. But, after that game was over did they go to curling? Of course, not they spent 15 minutes of highlights of their primetime coverage so stupid figure skating clips and a rambling Lindsey Vonn interview. Then they finally get to curling and they start coverage halfway through the match. They take a long commercial break between each end only show the last few stones of each end. It's a replay. They can show the whole thing. And, of course they even interrupt the replay to show a stupid interview with a figure skater who lost. They really suck.

              Adam Rippon's 15 minutes can't be over soon enough.

                Yeah this. I'm glad he helped Team USA to a bronze in team skate and I'm glad he's living his best life but you would think he had won gold by a mile the way NBC is promoting him.

                  This is the dream. Apparently there were so few halfpipe skiers trying to make the Olympics that one woman was able to do it simply by not crashing in any of her competitions leading up to the Games. This is her run from today's qualifying round:

                    This is the Olympics that will be remembered for he Nip Slip



                    French Ice Dancer Gabriella Papadakis with the Nip Slip. NBC apologized for it but showed closeups in slow motion. Truly an Olympic moment.

                            Curling is the best.
