In addition to those, some other current or recent USA original shows are:

Covert Affairs
Royal Pains
Common Law
Fairly Legal
In Plain Sight
The Dead Zone
Law & Order: Criminal Intent (first six seasons were on NBC, final four seasons were on USA)

Take a look at this list of all the shows that have aired on USA over the years.

I didn't realize USA produced a 4th season of Airwolf in 1987 after the first three seasons ran on CBS.

Some of the most popular shows on cable have been or are on USA Network. I guess you're just not paying attention.

If you enjoyed Airwolf, don't bother with the 4th season.

I watched so many Wings reruns on USA after school in junior high that somehow the episode order became embedded in my brain. This was way before we had episode guides on the internet, but I could tell you the plotline of tomorrow's episode based on the episode that was currently on, even though many of the storylines didn't carry over from one to the next.

It was weird.

I was quite distressed by the reporter who badgered Bode Miller until he broke down and cried.

I'm not sure what was worse, the fact that she did it or that NBC chose to air it.

Was it live? Maybe they didn't realize where it was going until it was too late to pull out gracefully?

But yeah...from what I've read the reporter was way out of line. Sounds like he's been a class act though and has defended her.

Comcast is letting me stream the Olympics this time. During the London Games they wouldn't because all I had was Limited Basic. The only thing I've done since then is add HBO because it was $5 cheaper than not having it, so either they're more lenient this time or they accidentally reclassified my package above LB when I added HBO.

I'm able to stream other channels (e.g., History) that require subscriber authentication but which I can't tune in over cable, so maybe I'm just the beneficiary of another Comcast error.

I thought over the weekend they were live streaming NBCSN according to a link at nbcolympics.com but I can't find that now. The streaming coverage has poor integration of the skating music (it sounds like they're just picking up the music from ambient sounds in the arena).

NBC just announced that they will be airing Mary Carillo's "documentary" of the 1994 Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan Story that night, unless they need to fill time earlier in the week if there is some sort of weather delay.

Cool

i saw the recent ESPN 30 for 30 one, but I want to see THIS one because Nancy herself finally talks about it all these years later.

I can't find a channel lineup, but I'm 95% sure it's NOT part of basic cable. I think it's in the old "Expanded Basic" package, which today Comcast calls "Digital Starter". Other providers may still use "Expanded Basic" or "Standard". TBS might actually be in basic cable, another junk channel.

Dude, with every post you lose little more credibility. First you've never heard of anything that airs on USA, one of the most popular channels on cable. Now you're saying that TBS, another of the most popular channels on cable is a "junk channel?" What next? Are you going to tell us that your favorite cable net is the Smithsonian Channel?

Looks like they are on the same tier of every other basic popular cable channel such as TNT, FX, History, MTV etc. etc.

Does NBC ever show a medal ceremony these days?

I don't think they showed it.

Probably because it doesn't matter. It happens eight hours later with a bunch of other events, one right after another after another. All of the drama and excitement is gone.

Imagine if instead of handing out the Lombardi Trophy on the field or the Stanley Cup on the ice, they did it three weeks later. Who would watch, other than the athletes' mothers?
