2012 Summer Olympics - Page 21

post #601 of 799
Thread Starter 
NBC has the cllosing ceremony scheduled for 8:30pm-10:58pm 2 hours 28 minuets.
The replay 12:35am-3:30am. 2 Hours 55 Minuets.
Starting at 4pm ET the ceremony is going to end around 7pm ET at 3 hours long.
Seems that if NBC is going to try and stick to their schedule they would have to do a lot of editing to ad in the commercials..

Won't be that difficult - the arrival of the athletes took a LOOONG time. Suspect NBC will be editing out a certain word from Eric Idle's song...

Since most of the music is British they can edit out all those acts because they are "not relevant to American audiences" and save hours!

Especially acts with small US fan base like Elbow, Kaiser Chiefs, Tinie Tempah etc.

New math? 4pm to 7pm is only three hours, not four.

Yeah I fixed that. redface.gif

Once the NBC internet feed was updated with only the stadium sound the audio quality improved.
The first feed was pausing at times. The second feed has been very good.

And The Who will presumably bite the dust as they're associated with CSI (which is CBS?)

The Olympic flame has just been extinguished, 12:00 midnight London time on the dot. Three hours into the closing ceremony. I think this is when NBC will cut it off at 10:35 pm. Roger Daltrey and the Who comes on right now. I think this will be the beginning of the latenight portion (after the Pilot and Local News) for NBC.

I was out for dinner, and just came back. The mic situation seems to have improved compared to the beginning of the show.

The Bowie interlude was extremely weak and his absence was notable, so I'm glad The Who appeared and their contribution wasn't just a cover of one of their songs.

NBC math is 4. They throw in the commercials. :-)

7:07 pm eastern, 12:07 am in London. End of Show.

Well - it's just finished. Ran over by about 30 minutes.

Much respect to Gary Barlow performing tonight given his very recent sad news.
post #612 of 799
The ceremony had more endings than Return of the King, but The Who finale was definitely the best.

8:30 to 10:58 is not even two and a half hours. NBC will cutting at least 40 minutes AND whatever time it needs for commercials.

Why is this show going to be infested by Seacrest?

That's it for me, won't be watching.

Yup. Perhaps the best and most gifted engineers and technicians ever assembled on the planet, using the most advanced broadcast technology ever produced lead by consistently vacuous executive editorial judgement.

Thanks for the great sound and images folks, too bad you were not well served by those who decided how they were delivered.

OK, let's see what NBC's math will be:

Show length: 3:07.
NBC length: 2:28 - cut 39 minutes of show
About 50 min of commercials in 2:28 (20 min per hour)
That leaves 1:38 of actual closing ceremony.

About 1/2 of the closing ceremony must be placed on the cutting room floor.

Don't forget the randomly placed Seacrest interviews!

It may be due to the show's heavy emphasis on British music. But then again, if he talks over all the music then what's the point? Over here on CTV, we just saw the whole show virtually without commentary. Great stuff !

A+ for the Closing ceremony biggrin.gif

I would have liked to have seen Ozzy, Iron Maiden, Tom Jones or Robert Plant. any of those would have been a better choice than Jessie J to perform with Brian May and it would have added some ignored musicians.

Apparently a few big names declined to appear... In the run up to the games there were lots of Brits predicting they would be a disaster, a shambles etc.

Some big names may have decided not to take the risk.

A real pity - as the games have NOT been a disaster, have NOT been a shambles, and have generated an amazingly positive reaction in the UK.

Unless they shoved some of it into the late night portion, after your local news.

BBC coverage AAA + + +

Online and Streaming.


NBC, NBCS and streaming F -

Why even bother. Useless presentation in this day and age. Not to mention the horrendous picture quality, HD-lite from all broadcast providers.

Some big names may have decided not to take the risk.

And that's one of the reasons they should have cut the Bowie section. The other being that it was cheap, dull and vacuous.

Posters on trucks and a few models walking? Total filler.

Replay of The Opening Ceremony started on NBC at 8:15. They figured they didn't have enough time after all.
post #629 of 799
the audio feed is better than it was on the stream. The vocals are more prominent.

"Ryan Seacrest is here, this might be a good time to bring him in ..."

That statement is never true. biggrin.gif

At least NBC appear to have listened, by telling the commentators to keep it down so the audience can actually listen.
post #630 of 799
First major edits there. Ray Davies, Emeli Sandi and the performers of Spellbound all gone.
