With all the networks of NBC Universal offering you the Olympics, we'd thought we'd take a moment to help you wade through it all and figure out what to watch.

ICE DANCING
Figure skating continues, but now it's ice dancing, think ballroom dancing with skates. If you don't tune in for the spectacular costumes, then you'll want to check out Americans Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto. They got silver in Torino and they're hunting for gold. So what's the difference between pairs and ice dancing? Simple no throws or jumps. Olympic coverage begins at 7 p.m. on NBC.

GO KATIE GO
If you have a need for speed, then skeleton is for you – 80 mph face first on ice. Women's skeleton continues with heats 3 & 4. Watch for former Texan Katie Uhlaender and the special skeleton shoes she designed. Live coverage begins at 7 p.m. on NBC.

THRILL OF VICTORY, OR…
You remember the "agony of defeat" was a man crashing after a ski jump. On Friday, the men come flying off the Large Hill and already there's controversy. Austria and Switzerland are clashing over bindings. Find out if the International Ski Federation has to get involved. Prime time coverage begins at 7 p.m. on NBC.

MILLER TIME ON THE SLOPES
Bode Miller is back in the hunt for a medal, as the Men's Super G gets underway. Super-G is short for super-giant slalom. The last time the U.S. won in super-G was in the 1994 Lillehammer Games. This competition comes down to seconds, don't miss a minute of the action, Olympic coverage starts at 7 p.m. on NBC.

HOCKEY HIGHLIGHTS
Loui Eriksson of the Dallas Stars and Henrik Lundqvist of Team Sweden take on Belarus, the puck drops at 2 p.m. on MSNBC.

And Dallas Stars Karlis Skrastins and his home country of Latvia take on the Czech Republic at 7 p.m. on CNBC.

Dallas Stars Jere Lehtinen moves on in round-robin play as Team Finland takes on Germany at 11 p.m. on MSNBC.

Of course these are just suggestions, you can always find the latest TV listings here.
