Yep, the IOC allowed NBC to rearrange the swimming schedule so that all finals are being held in US prime time. So much for the vaunted Olympic spirit; it can be bought by anyone with enough money, apparently.

What I saw of the opening ceremony looked fabulous, but I'm not sure about the Australian team's outfits. Hopefully channel 7's coverage won't be as embarrassing as usual...yeah, right.
It probably helps that many of the sponsors are American as well.
