Your Minute-By-Minute Olympic Viewing Guide: Final Weekend Edition

Sad days, my friends—the Rio Olympics are coming to an end. All I can ask of you is that you join me in finishing strong as our two-week joy parade reaches its finish line. No commentary from me as we go through the schedules for Saturday and Sunday…just imagine my American tears after each and every event. (With one exception: My must-watch weird sport recommendation is mountain biking, 11:30 a.m., Saturday for women’s, Sunday for men’s, computer.)

Before we get to the final guide of these Olympics, here’s a reminder on how they work:

1. Using both NBC’s various TV channels and their excellent live streaming site, I will show you how to watch the Olympics with an unmatched level of obsession and fanaticism. Note that every event listed on a TV network can also be streamed live, though the opposite is not true.

2. The focus is on catching every event where a medal is at stake, regardless of sport, and every team sport match featuring America. Follow me, and you’ll miss nothing.

3. Everything you see below is LIVE. We may be many things, but we are not tape-delay punks.

For a handy one-stop schedule of each event for the full two weeks, I made this spreadsheet to aid in your quest. Refer to it as needed.
