BEST BETS

Tonight's prime time lineup seems like more of the same. Will skier Bode Miller (yawn) win a medal? Will teammate Ted Ligety win another one?

The giant slalom airs tonight, as does the third night of ice dancing, which continues - and ends, finally - with the free skate. Americans Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto are in second place as they try to become the first U.S. dancers to medal in 30 years.

The most interesting part of prime time coverage should be the freestyle skiing men's aerials. The U.S. team is led by World Cup champion Jeret "Speedy" Peterson. The other real fun might be in today's live daytime coverage of team sports. Of course, that also is inconvenient, unless you're home for Washington's Birthday or set your DVR.

In curling, the U.S. men have secured a spot in the semifinals and play Canada (live, 8 a.m., USA Network) with a chance to deny its neighbors a place in the medal round. Palm Harbor's own Don Chevrier (who calls himself "Florida's only curling announcer") will call the action alongside longtime partner Don Duguid.

In women's hockey, the U.S. team plays Finland for the bronze medal live at 10:30 a.m. on MSNBC. The gold medal final between Canada and Sweden airs on NBC live at 2:35 p.m.
