If you are referring to NBC primetime coverage for the U.S., no worries. Of course it will include figure skating.

Quote from the executive producer of NBC Olympics (on Jan 23), from the U.S. commentators thread:
Regarding the combination of NBCSN and primetime viewing (pertaining to figure skating, as it happens), Bell said:
... the billion dollar lab from London definitely informed the macro decision to put all the figure skating live on cable. I mean that was a big decision, thinking that not only would it not cannibalize our audience, but to the contrary, we hope it will help build interest.
We hope that…not that we want to hurt the productivity of the workplace here, but we hope that people are gathered around watching the figs (figure skating) and talking about it and then going home and gathering around the tube with their family to watch it in primetime.
The GS thread at the link above has a link to a full NBC media call transcript with additional discussion of increased primetime ratings for London 2012 because of (not in spite of) online viewing earlier in the day.
