They've already shown it in HD, seen it previously, didn't watch the whole thing though.

The reason for the sad face is that I assume they must be editing the heck out of it, because it's scheduled to air from 8-11pm, and the film itself ran 3h9m.
With the normal proportion of commercials/content, they'll need to eliminate almost an hour of the film to fit into that slot. Has anyone heard anything different?

Does anyone recall how much is edited out and the amount of Commercial interuptions ?

Why does this surprise you? It's only on extremely rare occasions that a movie shown on the networks is shown unedited. If it wasn't for commercials, would the networks exist? Of course not. Commercials are how the networks make their money and exist. NBC pays a fortune for the Olympics. And then people complain about the commercials. What do they expect? Without the commercials, there would be no televised Olympics. The networks aren't in the game for any altruistic reasons. They exist to make money.
