2012 Summer Olympics: Record Ratings and Big Criticism

Wednesday August 1, 2012

With the 2012 Summer Olympics underway in London, NBC is seeing record television ratings but also big criticism from fans and athletes alike. Many fans have been irked by NBC's decision to air big-time events in primetime, even though the results of those events are known hours before they air. Also, athletes are blasting the International Olympic Committee via social media over "Rule 40," which prohibits competitors, coaches, trainers and officials from advertising for brands not affiliated with the Olympics. With all this in mind, what are your feelings on the Summer Games? Craig takes calls from listeners.
