Saturday Olympics on TV: More medals and meaningless figure skating
There are a whole lot of gold medals left to be won on this, the second-to-last day of the Sochi Olympics. Medals in snowboarding, cross-country skiing, biathlon, speedskating and hockey.
NBC, however, will be devoting a good deal of time - both in primetime and late-night - to figure skating, which is already done handing out all its medals. But figure skating is popular, so we'll see a good deal of the "gala," in which medalists go out, have some fun and perform.
