I don't mean to point out the 800 lb elephant sitting in the corner over there, but is there some reason you failed to appreciate NBC's fine coverage of the Olympic events?

It takes them 4 hours to show events that already happened in London, meanwhile NASA only takes 14 minutes to show a rover landing ON MARS.

Apart from that they cut off the closing ceremonies to show some new show nobody gives a sh*t about, it was impossible to not hear about who won gold in events before watching the events on NBC, their adds would even give away who won before they aired the races. Even when they tried to show it live they messed up, the Mens 100M sprint was shown online and in the middle of the race the website shut down from traffic overload.

Thats why they got a solid F. Thank GOD the olympics are moving to Rio in 2016 because then it will actually be in our timezone....
