NBC's 1000 hours of Olympics coverage breaks down as follows:

Figure Skating 980 hours
Stories about the Figure Skaters 15 hours
Skiing 3 hours
Everything else 2 hours

exactly.....IM sure the Curling and Bobsledding coverage will be relagated to MSNBC from 12am to 2am Saturday Nights.

Only if NBC gives us the late night/early morning LIVE coverage like they did with Athens.

I have a feeling it will only be their primetime taped coverage of 95% special interest stories of how Pablo raised himself, ate nothing but dirt as a child, only to become the World's greatest __________ and 5% sports action.

No. I'm shrouded in gloom right now.

I love curling... I'm not kidding, I am glued to the TV when it's on.
I love the bobsled/luge/skeleton stuff.
I like the skiing.
I can't wait for the hockey, though.

Im weird, but I found Curling kind of interesting to watch. Maybe not 3 straight hours of it, but at least the gold medal match uninterrupted or something.

My favorite, however, is the short track speed skating. That's insanity.

Ski Jumping's kind of cool from the 'big' hill, but typically all you get to see is the gold medal jump and the dudes on the medal stand.

........You have the first two backwards. I corrected it for you.

I'm really looking forward to the sports...not the touchy-feely stories that NBC usually has in primetime.

More biathlon!

I hate to say it, but I find the Winter Olympics to be kind of boring. That really big ski jump is the only thing that will ever catch my interest, and I'm usually just hoping to see a flaming crash.

Right...the agony of defeat syndrome...I've heard of that.
