I love the Olympics, both winter and summer, and I love that they're split up now because I get to get sucked in every two years instead of every four.
I agree that NBC's coverage is pretty bad though. What annoys me more than anything is the commercials -- and I DVR all the Olympics coverage I want to watch, so I even get to fast-forward through the commercials.
But I fail to understand why it makes sense to show ONE figure skating performance, then commercials, then ONE skating performance, then commercials, etc. The coverage is already choppy as is, with the way they jump from sport to sport on a whim.
Some of the things I've liked best were events that I could watch in full -- like the biathlon. Not my favorite event ever, but at least I got to see it basically from start to finish.
