Michael Phelps leads NBC's Olympic coverage tonight

Big shocker there, I know. The guy is unbelievable and the American people can't get enough of him, but I'm already starting to feel like the media is "Brett Favre-ing" this story. Either way, every night is potentially history in the making and there really isn't a whole lot else on TV.

Here's the breakdown from NBC:
BEIJING – August 11, 2008 – NBC's primetime coverage of the Beijing Olympics begins Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT with live swimming gold medals finals: the men's 200m butterfly and 4x200m relay and women's 200m freestyle and 200m individual medley. Michael Phelps will swim in the two men's gold medal finals tonight, and if he wins both events he will become the greatest Olympian of all-time with 10 career gold medals. Also, 2008 Beijing Olympic medalist Katie Hoff, who won silver Sunday night in the 400m freestyle and 5-time Olympic medalist Natalie Coughlin will both compete live. The highly anticipated women's team gymnastics gold medal final is live in primetime featuring reigning world all-around champion Shawn Johnson and nine-time world medalist Nastia Liukin as the lead Team USA to gold.
Not bad, especially when your other picks tonight are reruns and the "MXC" ripoff, "Wipeout."
