  1. 7 can’t complain with those numbers but I’m pretty sure they’ll start to slide once the swimming finishes.Woukd be interesting to see how the primetime rating’s for NBC are going.

      1. I’m loving the morning finals action. I record the swimming each morning, then when I get home from work I simply fast forward all the adds, commentator moments, other sports etc and just watch the key events. I’ve condensed the morning swimming action down to around 30 minutes. Thanks NBC!
