We are "all in" at our house. Love it. Not a fan of the dancing but my females are, so we watch it.

Won't watch figure skating AT ALL! Cause of the announcers.
Will watch curling of course. Ski jumping/flying, hockey, speed skating down hill, bob sled, luge.
Hours, Don't know, depends on when I can figure out what's on where?

The canadaian? If so I was extremely confused also... Announcers are making it seem like the American got killed big time.

Been watching as much as I can. Fun stuff

I really enjoy the alpine skiing events, especially the downhill. (The moguls competitition makes my knees hurt just watching it.)I also enjoy the speed skating and the bobsled and luge. I watch the biathlon too - it combines two passions of mine - endurance sports and shooting

I just saw a deal on the moguls, and someone asked one of the athletes about there knees and they said if you hit it right you just glide over and your knees don't take an impact... Seems like I would blow a knee out though!

Trying out the NBC sports app on the fire tv. You can watch a single event from start to finish. Some are even commercial free. Some have a commercial every 90 seconds! Watching snowboarding now...

I love it all....except I do not care for anything doing with men and figure skating. I dig the girls figure skating though. I'll watch the couple stuff but **** some of the dudes figure skating are tooo much. Like the squeeler wishing he had a Xanax earlier. Ooooof. Throw in that Weir flamer announcing and no thanks.

Favorite is speedskating, then any of the snowboarding.....then the big ski downhill events, biathalons, luge and bobsled events

We watched the opening ceremony and had a blast with all the different countries and talking about them with our five year old. After that it got turned off and won’t be back on until the 15th for the skeleton. I don’t know how this sport hasn’t caught on yet, it hooked me ever since it returned to the games in 2002.

Yes sir, this year at least. In the past Iíve watched a lot of the speed skating and ski events; but this year I canít get excited about any of it. Maybe Iím still bummed about the US Menís National Team not making the World Cup.

I've been bumbed about the world cup as well, and hope these athletes put up a strong front since they're dealing with the anti-america trump haters as well as the true citizens of the country.

We were at the in-laws Saturday and my MIL had it on the couple ice skating. I felt like I was being punished.

Thatís probably all of the olympics I will watch this year. No even kidding.

I enjoy watching all of the events. I changed the channel when Rippon was skating but I don't mind watching most of the skating events either.

The 15 year old Russian girl was pretty incredible to watch last night!

I've watched a little of the figure skating this year. If you can ignore his in-your-face flamboyance (many can't, obviously) Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski are both really good skating commentators.
