Years ago Olympic coverage was about showing the competitions, Granted it may have changed but I doubt it. The last time I watched TV coverage was horrendous. This was back in the 90's. FOr every hour on, 23 minutes of commercials, 22 minutes of "culture" travel channel BS about hosting area, and only 15 minutes of coverage most of which was talking about it instead of showing it. Some great events with great athletes going on, unfortunately American TV has no interest in actually showing them.
