After ten nights of Olympics coverage, Comcast's (CMCSA) NBCUniversal averages 33.6M primetime viewers, up a brisk 12.4% from the 2008 Beijing Games. NBC's margin of victory for the period over second-ranked CBS is the largest in Nielsen's history. As part of its ratings dominance, the Today show beat Good Morning America for the first time in five weeks.

    Olympic viewing was greatly controlled. I was not able to watch because I don't have an adequate account with Cox Communications.


    This is why I went long on DISCA and SNI. Internet streaming still has major barriers before it can compete with traditional TV viewing platforms.


    Netflix will have a rough go of it.

    NBC coverage, while extensive, was a bust as far as I am concerned. In the last two nights, I still have not seen replay of the 100 meter and 200 meter men's finals. I'm sure who won, I just haven't seen it.


    Enough of Beach Volleyball to fill me up for the next 3 decades.


    Hardly any field events shown (shot, javelin, discus).


    Didn't see the 1500 meter. No schedule ever shown anywhere that I know of, etc. etc.
