Olympics coverage

Channel7 have the exclusive rights to broadcast the winter thing in Utah. So while the opening ceremony was going on yesterday, they had the opportunity to broadcast it.

But they didn't. Instead, they showed the original 1966 Batman movie followed by a Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis pile of shite.

We were shown an expurgated version of the opening at 8.30.

Of which I missed half, because The Bill was on ABC and that takes precidence.

I don't understand it. What would you rather show? Olympics Opening Ceremony Live, or Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis pile of shite?
