How exciting are these games, Checklisters? There was plenty of nail biting action last week and there are still more gold medals to come! Here's what to watch this week!
Olympic Women's Gymnastics Event Finals 8/6-8/7, Check Local Listings, NBC
Watch all-around gold medalist Gabby Douglas try for another medal on the uneven bars on Monday night. Then on Tuesday, Gabby and teammate Aly Raisman go head to head on the balance beam with Jordyn Wieber fighting for her only shot at an individual medal on the floor exercise.
Olympic Women's Beach Volleyball Finals 8/8, Check Local Listings, NBC
Will the bubbly but powerhouse duo Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings of Team USA be able to take home a third straight gold medal?
Go On Series Premiere 8/8, 11:05/10:05c, NBC
It almost seems like an Olympic event itself when Matthew Perry struggles to get a pilot off the ground. Will this new comedy, where he stars as a recently widowed sportscaster, finally get Perry his gold? Or will Friends always be his gold and now he's just shooting for a silver? Am I making too many Olympics analogies?
Dallas Season Finale 8/8, 9/8c, TNT
This reboot has been developing a sort of 80s fan-cult following now that it has a little more sex appeal and less flyaway hair. All I really want to know is: will tonight's season finale end with JR getting shot again?!
Children's Hospital Season Premiere 8/9, 12AM/11PMc, Adult Swim
The Boogeyman 8/11, 9/8c, Syfy
Just in case you're tired of all of those powerful athletes and amazing feats of sport, tune in to this SyFy original movie about people who aren't fast enough to get away from the creepy predator whose haunted our dreams since we were kids!
Olympic Men's Basketball Final 8/12, Check Local Listings, NBC
With their seriously dominating 156-73 defeat over Nigeria last week, will LeBron, Kobe, Kevin and the rest of The Dream Team 2.0 take home more USA gold? Heck, I am writing this so far in advance I don't even know if they'll make it to the final! (Yeah right).
Olympics Closing Ceremonies 8/12, 7/6c, NBC
The closing ceremony is always a little sad though uplifting when the host country passes the torch onto the next host country (Brazil). The theme of the closing night ceremony is "A Symphony of British Music," which should be quite lovely up until rumored performers The Spice Girls start to sing.
