6 thoughts on “Olympic Broadcast Schedule: Day 9 (Sunday, August 5)

  1. Once again,the NBC Daytime programming that is live is for ALL timezones because it is the weekend. The marathon for females is live on the Seattle and Spokane stations.

    Glad to see the times in the 24 hour clock format.

    • No it is because of the tennis. Trust me. If the tennis is live, then everything else has to be too. NBC just wants to show the Wimbledon tennis live because it will bring in big ratings. Last weekend everything was tape delayed and next Saturday it will be too. Next Sunday the Marathon will air on one hour delay in most timezones, with the men’s basketball final live at 10am ET/7am PT (there is about an hour between the end of the marathon broadcast and the start of the basketball game).

  2. I am flabbergasted & shocked by this heavy-hand (& sneaky) ruling by the FEI. My understanding is that they “examined” & DQ’d the horse without the over-sight of anyone on Canada’s team in attendance. I’d sure like to know EXACTLY how they managed to sneak in & out in 4 minutes & make that call!!!

  3. Does anyone else find Joanne Malar’s diving commentary on TSN ear-splitting & annoying?? To me, she sounds like a hysterical teenage girl.

What do you think?
