SpeedskatingWhat we're watching: We're increasing our listings a smidge beyond primetime for the Winter Olympic games over the next two weeks. There's just so much HD Olympic Coverage on NBC that we don't want you to miss a thing, especially the new "Synchronized Curling" events. The highlighted events of Skiing, Speedskating and Figure Skating all kick off at 8 p.m. tonight. If warm-weather sports are more your climate, you can join me in celebrating the return of NASCAR. I know it's silly because the cars go in a circle, which is "no where" and the first car to go "no where" effectively wins, but I'm a sucker for the driver drama. Tonight is a non-points event starting at 8:30 p.m. on TNT-HD. And according to them, they know drama.
