TiVo announces most rewound moment of Olympics

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...
One of the most scrutinized Olympic moments over the weekend had more to do with lip-reading than athletic competition. TiVo said that the one moment people rewound their DVRs to watch more than any other on Saturday night was when unhappy American skater Ashley Wagner looked at the scoreboard to find her scores after skating to Pink Floyd. She wasn't pleased. Her one-word response looked about as sour as her expression. Facebook also said Sunday that Wagner was one of the most talked-about subjects on the popular social media site over the weekend.

Facebook's most discussed topic, however, was the moguls performance of Canadian sisters Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe, who took gold and silver.

Seeing American gold medal slopestyle winner Jamie Anderson in a commercial right after she is shown clinching the medal feels cheap, like hearing a song being used as an advertising jingle while it's still at the top of the charts. No doubt NBC was paid handsomely for the spot, but it doesn't do the network any favors, either. Instead, it reminds viewers they are seeing a canned TV show instead of a sporting event. When it's considered a weakness that the time zone difference doesn't allow for any live competition in prime-time, hard to understand why you would want to underline the point.

Yes, the strength and athletic skill required of Olympic-caliber ice dancers is undeniable. But it's that much harder to take seriously as a sports event when two Russian skaters have a point deducted from their performance because a feather from the woman's costume fluttered to the ice. It seemed unremarkable to NBC analyst Johnny Weir, who just came from that world, but kudos to Terry Gannon for not letting the inherent ridiculousness of the moment slip past.
