1.2 Billion

One point two billion dollars - that's what NBC paid for the right to broadcast the 2016 Olympics from Rio.
 After last night's opening ceremonies, they ought to be asking for some of their money back.  In spite of the NBC announcers gushing on about how wonderful what we were seeing was, it just wasn't.
The only emotion it generated in this viewer was annoyance at their editorial about climate change - totally inappropriate for this venue - but even that was only mildly irritating.
If you're interested in how to see the actual competitions, Fortune Magazine published this guide.
