The 2012 Olympics continue to be tremendous fun though it is becomingly increasingly in spite of NBC. The continuous coverage is great when you have a)all the cable channels, b)time off to watch live events through out the day, c) no internet so the ‘primetime’ events are spoiled and d) e) f) etc. See more specific examples here!
Whether it is it is one of these examples, frequent programming gaffes or even
racist lazy schedule, just watch the now infamous ‘racist’ Bob Costas to Gabby Douglas clip, and it is hard not be disappointed. Lucky for all, or at least U.S., viewers the actual events are exciting in their diversity and unpredictability.
Hopefully ESPN, which has superior coverage i.e. World Cup for any sport it airs (NBA, NFL) on it’s networks (while ignoring the rest), will outbid NBC in the future we we can all have our cake and eat it as well and future Twitter handles will be #ESPNsuccess and not #NBCfail…
