Actually, they did the big ending/music/montage/credits for everyone involved in the broadcast on SATURDAY during the day.
I saw it. We Tivoed the Olympics and have many hours of coverage to fast-forward through now (in our vast amount of free time--ha ha!).
I was not paying a lot of attention on Saturday, but I did see this. I specifically heard them say that they were going to do the closing credits now so that more people would be able to see it. So I stopped and paid attention.
They ran about a ten-minute montage featuring several popular (inspiring) songs and live shots of pretty much every great moment in the Olympics, especially the American athletes. They also ran the credits, which included multiple hundreds of names of grips, camera crew, technical crew, assistants to the producers, script girls and boys, graphic designers, etc. etc.
It was very inspiring. A keeper for the Tivo, IMO.
I think it should have been re-run on Sunday night, but then, they are a television network, and they are trying to convince sponsors to sell the public products and they do that through shows, not just the Olympics. They were just doing their job.
Interestingly, there are probably just as many people in the U.S. who are glad that the Olympics are finally over as there are people like me who wish they could go on forever. Where I worked, most people didn't even bother to watch any of the Olympics, even when people from our own backyard were competing. My goodness, times have changed. When I was a child and a teenager, everyone I knew watched the Olympics and cheered for their home country. My PARENTS watched the Olympics. I believe we stood up during the National Anthem, at least until my mom's arthritis got too bad to stand. I still remember her watching track star Michael Johnson and saying how beautiful he was (she couldn't even walk).
