It's really confusing to try and figure out when all the important Olympics events are on, so we made a handy viewer's guide.
A few notes:
Every single "one off" event you want to watch (like, the 100m dash) will not be shown live on television. Instead it will be streamed live online at NBCOlympics.com, then shown on tape-delay on NBC at night
The Olympics will be really busy in the middle of the next week
All this stuff is on while you're at work
Here are all the big events, compete with times (eastern) and where you can watch them [channel or online].
