    Once every 4 years sweeps gets replaced by the Olympics. A minor inconvienience for about 16 days. On the up side, this has been the most entertaining Olympics I've ever seen, and I usually hate the Olympics.

    Yeah, I've really missed all those episodes of Sleazeball Island, Another Stupid Formula Sitcom and Our Game Show is More Outrageous Than the Other Guy's. [​IMG]

    Well, I miss seeing more than just one new episode of Smallville, Gilmore Girls, Buffy, ER, Friends, Will and Grace, Angel, Scrubs, Ed, Once and Again, Alias, X-Files, heck, even Dark Angel!

    Well Mr. Sun, this would have been a good time to get out and about. Read a couple of good books, watch a slew of DVD's or whatever. Even when the Olympics is not being shown this time of year usually is re-run time anyway. [​IMG]

    The Olympics were a great opportunity to watch the backlog of shows on my Tivo. That sucker is handy in so many ways. [​IMG]

    I never rented so many movies in such a short time as during the last three weeks. The Olympics have been a great opportunity for movie viewing.

    True, this forum has been dead, but it's a small price to pay.

    On the plus side, though, there have been (and will be) fewer re-runs throughout the rest of the season than in recent years.

    Much to my wife's chagrin, I have been glued to the Olympics for the whole duration--everything from Alpine skiing to curling.

    Despite the judging controversies, the Olympics is still the best hope for the world to get together to do something constructive. In the wake of recent events, we needed this Games more than ever. Thanks to all the peace-loving peoples of Earth. We had a great time.

    I agree with you, Patrick. I'm glad it's over tonight.

    The only thing that made me pissed was that they left a BIG clifghanger on the last episode of Friends and I'm having to wait this long 'til the Olympics are over. If the episode wasn't a to be contuned... and just a normal episode, I wouldn't mind as much.

    Yep, if this Olympics has proved one thing, it's that all nations can put aside their petty difference and come together with peace and unity.

    Oh wait, ask the Russians or the Koreans or well, I guess basically anybody that doesn't reside in North America.

    Now I know why the broadcasting coverage of any Olimpics are so fucked up, in this country!
    I gues nobody care for it in the first place.I used to love to watch it when I was a kid back in Hungary, but the last 13 yeras I've been here I've lost interest due to the louzy coverage that I get here in the US.[​IMG]

    I guess we're pretty darn lucky here in Canada. Both the CBC and TSN have pushed aside almost their entire show schedules just to offer us on average sixteen hours of Olympic coverage each and every day. And the west coast wasn't tape-delayed!
    What can I say? We just loooooove the Olympic games! [​IMG]
