Devo plays the Whistler Medals Plaza at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics Winter Games from Thomas Attila Lewis on Vimeo.

We captured some of the Devo show at Whistler Medals Plaza for you that was broadcast live in Canada but not the US. We hope to get into the Roots show later this week. We think that NBC was probably either showing yet another inane piece with Mary Carillo or a medals ceremony from the day before or something else tape-delayed by hours. You can see the songs individually at these links (by song): "Gates of Steel", "Uncontrollable Urge", "That's Good", and "Fresh". Feel free to share them with other US-bound Spuds who were denied their freedom of choice by NBC.

The AP did a mini review of NBC's coverage over the last few days.
Jane Kaczmarek of "Malcolm In the Middle" fame and Adam Arkin (of Arkin fame) will be co-starring in a new series by ABC called "Who Gets the Parents?" and Michael Chiklis of "The Shield" fame will be returning to TV in ABC's drama "No Ordinary Family". More new program notices over at The Hollywood Reporter.
