Clowns instead of Figure Skating23 Feb 2006
For NBC, the Olympic figure skating final is the big show, almost as big as the Super Bowl. For the German TV network ZDF it's no show at all. Olympic programming this evening has been pre-empted for live coverage of Karneval in Cologne. Figure skating fans here have to wait for the late night wrapup... or switch to Eurosport, where the Olympic coverage is better anyway.
