Did Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira ruin the opening ceremonies broadcast last night?


I was really looking forward to watching the opening ceremonies in one of my favorite cities. It was MADDENING to me how much those two talked and wouldn't shut up. Most of us are intelligent enough to figure out what is going on without their silly commentary. When meredith started to sing through it I wished with all my heart I could reach through the tv and smack her. The ceremonies were stunning - aside from their blather. Anyone else agree?

    what can I say except I totally agree with every point you just made. I hate that we are talked to by people like we are so stupid we can't understand anything without the constant, inane blathering.

    empty and silly is absolutely correct. I agree, they are likely to continue this practice and not change and that is unfortunate.

    I could see a few brief explanations - but the constant blather was just over the top. They even edited out Britains tribute to their citizens that were killed in a terror attack :( I'm sure the producers are behind ruining it though it's their job.

    LOL, I agree. I remember my parents playing that game with my sister and I. Let's see who can be quiet the longest - ready go! ;) or maybe technology to mute the commentary and not the event would be stellar too.
