    I'm curious about how much she grow longer and If so, she had jumps still?

    8 p.m. – 11:05 p.m. ET/PT
    ~ Men’s Alpine Skiing – Slalom Gold Medal Final
    ~ Four-Man Bobsled – Competition
    ~ Figure Skating – Gala
    ~ Men’s Snowboarding – Parallel Slalom Gold Medal Final
    ~ Men’s Speed Skating – Team Pursuit Gold Medal Final
    ~ Women’s Speed Skating – Team Pursuit Gold Medal Final

    Midnight – 1 a.m. ET/PT
    ~ Figure Skating – Gala
    Will the NBC midnight broadcast of the gala be the same as the NBC prime time broadcast? Or will they show more skaters at midnight? For the 2010 Olympics gala, NBC didn't show many skaters at all.

    I am pretty sure the only US channel that will air the Gala live and in its entirety is NBCSN
    which will air 2/22 12:30 P.M.-2:30 P.M. ET. Live streams from other countries may carry the Gala also.

    The repeat of the Gala at Midnight will be a re-broadcast of NBC Prime Time and usually they do chack a lot of of skaters.

    Thanks, demarinis.

    But *sigh*, I don't have NBCSN, so I'll just have to hope that the skaters I want to see don't get Chacked. Oh, and I'll also try to watch another country's live stream.

    Caveat:
    Throughout the Games, the NBC broadcast network (not NBCSN) has had a relatively short late-night telecast with original programming -- which is not to be confused with the primetime encore telecast that starts after the late-night broadcast.

    The Saturday night primetime encore broadcast will air from 1 a.m. – 4 a.m. ET/PT (technically, in the wee hours of Sunday morning) --and is distinct from NBC's midnight broadcast on Saturday night.
    [ETA, source: the same NBC link above.]

    That said, I agree that it is impossible for the NBC network telecasts (again, I mean the broadcast network, not NBCSN) to show the gala in entirety. And what they do show obviously will not be live.

    Only my speculation:
    I think that chances are that NBC's hour-long midnight telecast will devote more time to gala coverage than the primetime telecast will -- even if the midnight show uses a small amount of time for other sports not indicated in the midnight listing. The three-hour primetime telecast will include five other sports (not to mention all the breaks for advertisements), so you do the math.
    My hunch is that the primetime telecast will include Davis/White and Gold in entirety, plus other headliners of NBC's choice.
    Would not surprise me if the midnight telecast re-airs at least snippets of the Americans (and possibly others from primetime) -- and adds partial or full skates of a few other biggies.
    Again, only my speculation.

    Okay, I'll record the primetime and the midnight broadcasts.

    My first post! Glad I found this place.

    I am making it a point to be with my 96YO mom at her nursing home for the NBCSports live showing.

    I watched the ladies' short live with her and we are having such fun talking on the phone while watching the live skating.

    Plus, I am getting a kick out of the Tara/Johnny duo (plus Terrence), so I want to hear everything they have to say for the Gala.

    Lovely first post, melly. How wonderful that your mother is going strong at 96 -- and that she and you are enjoying the skating together . Give her a big hug for us. Best to you both.

    And pls come back and tell us who her favorites and yours were.

    Welcome, Melly! I used to watch skating with my mom, and it made the experience extra-special. I'm sure we'll all see some lovely skating, and it will be so great to see people like Carolina skate purely for enjoyment and for their fans.

    I'm imagining what the ice dancing will look like. The competition was so wonderful that it's hard to anticipate anything that can top it. And if we're lucky, we'll get to see Daisuke and Mao by special invitaion. Fingers are crossed!

    What people mean when they say "Who cares?" is of course "I don't care, and therefore neither should anyone else." Even if used in daily speech, and among kindred spirits, I for one avoid it on an internet forum for that reason....

    Re Asada and Takahashi:
    If the gala line-up is firm (as would be reasonable to assume), then they are included -- see post #23 on page 2 of this thread for the link to the skate order showing their names. So if you have access to wall-to-wall coverage of the gala, sit back and enjoy.

    ETA, re "reasonable to assume:"
    I hope I did not jinx Radionova. Простите. Forgive me.
