The walk the line of information and blathering on really well.

I'll agree with that, they run a good color commentary when they are doing an event. They have good chemistry as a team.

Hope others enjoyed it, but I found this iteration of the Olympics pretty uneventful.

To be brutally honest, most boring Olympics I’ve watched.

IMO, NBC really handled the tv prime time tv viewing of this year's Olympics badly. No real notice of what would be on. Hardly ever really talked about games being played on NBCSN live. No NBC coverage till prime time. I know the summer Olympics have a lot more events than the winter ones and the time zone disparity probably played a huge part in it, but it felt like nothing of interest was really on at a time most people would watch, even if it was in delayed form.
