  • Olympics Highlights TV... How Much Track & Field ?

    For this upcoming 12/27 telecast, let's have a contest here to see who can guess the closest.

    Actual action-time footage... I say..... 1 minute, 14 seconds.

    Oh, that's easy: 9.69 + 19.30 = 28.99 seconds....being on the conservative side, I'll round up to an even 30 seconds....

      i'd say 2 minutes, as they'll show replays of both sprints from a few angles and gush about how fast it would be in a football 40

        It's NBC. They have to show the US winning something on the track. So expect the men's 400, or one leg of the 4x400 relays in addition to Bolt's 29 seconds.

          I'm not sure we'll even get that much of Bolt. Bryan Clay will probably get more air time.

            It would be about time that NBC showed Clay some love.

              I'll predict that Lolo Jones gets at least as much and probably more air time than Clay...

                I see this is listed as "The Beijing Olympic Opening Ceremony: The TV Event of the Year." I wonder if any sports are going to be shown. Anyone want to volunteer to watch it and report back?

                  What that tells me is sad. The marketing folks at NBC must think that more people will tune in to that show to see the ceremony (either for the first time or the second) than to see any of the actual competition in any sport.

                  OK, the Beijing Opening Ceremony was very entertaining, but gimme a break--that's not what the Olympic Games are all about.

                    From an economic standpoint, it is entirely what the olympics are about.

                      So I didn't watch (sorry, all my available TV time at this point is devoted to rewatching the first season of Damages), so what did they do?

                        I started this thread, so I should have watched... but sorry, I did not.

                          The show was mostly a review of the Highlights of the Opening Ceremony, which I admit I enjoyed immensely, again.
                          As for the actual sport coverage, less than 10 minutes in total, I think, with a lot of Phelps, some USA women's gymnastics, some great footage of Bolt, and a shot of Isy and her vault + abs. + smile afterwards. At least, I think she was smiling Certainly less than 1 minute of Athletics coverage, but made up for by those wonderful shots of Yao and the little guy in his arms as they watched the end of the Ceremonies together ---- I love that.
