    If NBC were even semi-apologetic or attempting whatsoever to make anything better, I wouldn't be half as pissed. But honestly NBC has all but come out and said they don't give a damn and the viewers can just suck it.

    This Olympics has been kinda dull. On top of that NBC has been doing a horrible job covering the event and then they throw in that annoying midget Seacrest in the mix. When he first popped up on the TV during the opening ceremonies I was pissed! I can't escape him. Now I gotta see his annoying ass during new years eve and the olympics?

    Jon Stewart Bashes NBC for Opening Ceremony Cutaway
    July 31st, 2012 1:23 PM by Hilton Hater

    Slamming NBC's coverage of the Summer Olympics has become as much of a sport these days as swimming, archery or basketball.

    The network is not airing many key events as they happen. It's even spoiling its very own primetime tapings by announcing the winner of various races earlier in the day. It's a mess all around.

    But Jon Stewart has found a different reason to go off on NBC: its decision to cutaway from an Opening Ceremony tribute to the victims of the 7/7/05 bombing in London... in favor of an interview between Ryan Seacrest and Michael Phelps.

    Video: Jon Stewart Slams NBC

    “You wouldn’t air a six-minute tribute to the rest of the world’s terror victims? Because the world’s most overexposed land-based mammal had a chance to speak to the world’s most overexposed water-based mammal?” Stewart asks in the clip above

    NBC has defended the decision by noting that it tailors the Olympics for an American audience, giving Stewart an easy target, considering the woeful ratings that network has endured for years:

    “You’re NBC! You don’t know how to tailor television for an American audience!”

    Point, Jon Stewart.
