Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony Review: Finally, an End to These Weird Rio Games

21 August 2016 8:31 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The closing ceremonies for the 31st Summer Olympics in Rio on NBC were an indication of just how exhausted everyone has become from the last 16 days. A mere two weeks have passed since Matt Lauer, Hoda Kotb, and Meredith Vieira set the stage for what would ultimately become a global demonstration of the Ugly American trope. In lieu of those three heavy-hitters, the closing ceremonies were hosted by Mary Carillo, Ryan Seacrest, and Mike Tirico finishing things the way they began–by complaining that Brazil thinks Alberto Santos-Dumont is the true father of aviation. “They’re not letting this go, »

TV Ratings: Olympics Viewership Sags on Day 14 But ‘Superstore’ Gets Sampling

20 August 2016 10:23 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC saw a big viewership drop on Friday for its coverage of the 14th day of competition at the Rio summer Olympics.

A lack of marquee events made for a modest turnout for NBC’s primetime slate featuring gold medal finals in diving and sprint relays. NBC averaged a 13.6 household rating and 24 share in Nielsen’s 56 overnight metered markets, which cover about 70% of U.S. TV households. That was off by more than a rating point from Thursday’s primetime performance and down nearly two points from the games’ average in primetime.

Digital viewing of the games continues to grow by leaps and bounds, per NBC Sports. As of Friday, the NBCOlympics.com site and NBC Sports app had served up 2.5 billion live streaming minutes, which amounts to 1 billion minutes more than all prior Olympics combined since the advent of streaming.

Meanwhile, NBC was able to channel Friday’s Olympics lead-in to generate solid linear sampling for »

2016 Summer Olympics: 8 Things We’re Looking Forward To in Rio, And How to Watch Them

6 August 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

And they’re off! After weeks of reports about trouble in Rio – from the threat of Zika virus to the very real problem of polluted water – the 2016 Summer Olympics got underway Friday night with an Opening Ceremony that underwhelmed – at least for American TV audiences. (Initial ratings were way down from the 2012 London Olympics.)

Nonetheless, the real drama and excitement is still to come over the next two weeks, as some of the world’s most decorated athletes look to add to their record tallies. As NBC’s Bob Costas recently told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour, “Obviously Michael Phelps is already the greatest swimmer in Olympic history. Usain Bolt is already the greatest sprinter in Olympic history, and they’re trying to add to what they already have done, so we’re talking about Mount Rushmore-type stuff.”

Costas also has his eye on this year’s »

Rio 2016 Review: Olympics Opening Ceremony Is Uneasy Blend of Culture and Commerce

5 August 2016 10:02 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

During its coverage of the Olympics’ opening ceremony Friday night, NBC aired an interview with two of the event’s co-directors, Brazilian filmmakers Fernando Meirelles (“City of God”) and Daniela Thomas (“Paris, je t’aime”)—though it’s unclear if anyone from the network was listening. Meirelles and Thomas explained the purpose behind the performance, which was to avoid the host nation’s usual navel-gazing (“talking about their belly buttons,” as Meirelles put it) in favor of global issues, connecting the history of Brazil to the specter of climate change.

Perhaps he meant that the navel-gazing would be reserved for NBC: With “Today Show” talent emceeing the spectacle at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracanã Stadium and Bob Costas plugging The Golf Channel from the main set, the telecast had the feeling of an especially expensive presentation at the Television Critics Association’s biannual get-together, laying on the salesmanship a little strong. »

NBC Sports Dives Into Questions About Rio Olympics Health And Safety Concerns, But Won’t Get In The Water – TCA

2 August 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

"Absolutely not," NBC Olympics correspondent Mary Carillo said today when asked by Olympics primetime host Bob Costas if she intended to take a dip into the polluted waters where swimmers and sailing teams will be competing during the Rio Games. Carillo, who is covering "open water swimming" the second week of the Games for NBC, told TV critics at TCA that researchers have assured her the water was "worse" than Rio’s in the Serpentine in Hyde Park where Olympics swimmers… »
