    Meh. Team bickering kills TWD for me. Zombies are pretty played out at this point, as well.

    Yesterday we were watching the women's biathlon - skiing/rifle shooting. It quickly reminded us that Walking Dead was coming back last night.

    why are these even competing. I assume the walking dead is on around 9 and the olympics are like 7/8 hours before that.

    With the shitty coverage of the Winter Olympics given by U.S. networks that's not terribly surprising.

    I wish more networks realized you could program against the Olympics and be fine.

    I heard someone say that the Olympics beats out everything ratings wise is because it's not competing against new programming. Maybe TWD's success might get the networks to start airing new eps against the Olympics.
