    First we have Bob Costas and his unfortunate eye issue, then we get Matt Lauer ...and now Meredith Viera? Really??? Maybe someone with a little sports knowledge might be nice replacement for Costas

    That opinion is NOT widely held... nor is it particularly accurate. And your post implies that Costas, too, knows sports...

    NBC is switching up the anchors so that the Ruskies dont know who to target with KGB assassins... (<=== its a JOKE)

    Bob Costas has hosted the prime time coverage of the Olympics since 1988.
    I think that qualifies as knowledge

    I'm surprised they don't have a good backup for him. Then again it's NBC

    No. That would qualify as "longevity" and maybe "stamina" or "persistence". We’ve had Obama for 6+ years, and I’d be hard pressed to call him knowledgeable.

    I really don't like Obama, but I feel that whenever Congress does something wrong, Obama is always blamed.

    I'm kind of disappointed in NBC's Olympic coverage overall. Sure they have the events but the commentary is just poor. I was very disappointed in the opening ceremonies. People were talking and the hosts(Matt and Meredith) were speaking over them. I would have liked to have heard what the people were saying....

    I also would have thought hockey was popular enough for them to air it during prime time and not on another channel.
