5. Stewart to NBC: Are You Kidding?
Remember the Olympics opening ceremonies' moving tribute to victims of terrorism? You probably don't because NBC didn't air it in the U.S.—and instead aired a segment of Ryan Seacrest interviewing Michael Phelps. Watch Jon Stewart deliver an epic WTF to the network.

4. ‘Boys’ Is the New ‘Girls’

3. An Olympics Nip-Slip?
Oops! Did NBC inadvertently air an underwater flash during live coverage of a women's water polo game? It certainly seems so, judging from this brief clip where one player reveals a bit too much while tugging on another athlete's suit.
