NBC OlympicsWhat we're watching: The Winter Olympic games are here! Well, not exactly here; they're in Turin, Italy but you catch our drift. The Opening Ceremonies are typically filled with vibrant color and vivid sounds, just perfect for high-definition television. Tonight, you can join the games at 8 p.m. on NBC in 1080i. Kick your ski-boots off tonight and catch the beginning of the games, would ya?

Oh and just to squash the rumors before the games even begin, there is absolutely no truth to the story that Howie Mandel will be hosting the game show "Medal or No Medal" during the games.
