Overnight TV Ratings
The Olympics are doing fine for NBC, but there's no question it's remarkable to see them beat by regular episodes of shows like Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy.

The Olympics averaged 18.5 million for the night, though it did manage to barely squeeze by House from 9 to 10 p.m. Barely.
