Olympics recap: Emotional Bode Miller interview makes headlines, Meryl Davis and Charlie White lead in ice war

17 February 2014 2:49 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

NBC’s primetime Olympics broadcast Sunday will be remembered as the night that reporter Christin Cooper made Bode Miller cry by essentially asking what he was saying to his late brother, Chilly, when he spoke to the sky before his run in the men’s Super-g. We’ve devoted a separate item to it, which includes Miller’s response to the backlash against Cooper, and you can read that here. I think it was a fair question — considering how open both Bode and his wife Morgan, who’s allowed herself to be mic’d during Bode’s events in Sochi, »

Olympics preview: In defense of Ice Dancing -- Video

15 February 2014 9:44 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

After curling, no Winter Olympics sport is more maligned than ice dancing, which begins Feb. 16. (Watch the short dance live on Nbcsn, starting at 10 a.m. Et, ahead of NBC’s primetime coverage. The free skate airs live on Nbcsn at 10 a.m. Et on Feb. 17, when medals are decided.) As you heard countless times during the figure skating team event, the greatest rivalry in the sport is between the USA’s reigning world champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White, who’ve been undefeated in the last two years, and their training mates, Canada’s reigning Olympic gold medalists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. »

Olympics recap: Jeremy Abbott's a phoenix, plus the slopestyle boys at their 5 most precious moments

14 February 2014 2:14 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There are many candidates for Thursday’s Olympic Stud of the Day, an EW.com tradition dating back to the 2008 Summer Games that honors the athlete who was the night’s biggest/coolest badass. The U.S.’s Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy, and Nick Goepper swept the inaugural men’s ski slopestyle event — a feat the U.S. has only accomplished twice before in Winter Olympics history. Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu became the first male figure skater to ever score above 100 points for a short program. Zhang Hong was the first Chinese speed skater to win long-track gold. But we »

Olympics: Tara Lipinski talks figure skater superstitions -- Video

12 February 2014 9:53 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

As figure skating continues at the Sochi Olympics — the pairs medals are decided Feb. 12, and the men take the ice again Feb. 13 and Feb. 14 — the jumps aren’t the only thing to tune in for. We asked 1998 gold medalist-turned-commentator Tara Lipinski, who’s calling all the action live on Nbcsn with Johnny Weir and Terry Gannon, what else we should be watching — and she told us to keep an eye out both for pre-skating rituals and excitable coaches. (Can we get picture-in-picture for Brian Orser?) »

NBC Embraces Multi-Platform Coverage for Olympics — Finally

3 February 2014 10:04 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As NBCUniversal prepares for its 18-day onslaught of Winter Olympics coverage starting Thursday, it’ll be rolling out a revised Olympics game plan that brings it up to speed with the fast-changing media world.

Some aspects of the Sochi Games will be familiar to American viewers: Bob Costas will be back, figure skating will be big, and the U.S. hockey team will be an underdog against Canada and Russia. But after an uneasy flirtation with multiplatform coverage and the Web in past Olympics, the Peacock has finally committed to a more-is-more strategy.

The Peacock didn’t take full advantage of cable networks in the past and was late to embrace streaming video, social media and the rise of YouTube and its ilk as destinations for must-see video highlights. For Sochi, however, NBCU is rolling out new platforms, new programs and new talent across its apps, the Web and its family of cable nets. »
