Torino 2006 Winter Olympics American Flag PinCoverage of actual events of the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy is you best bet tonight. NBC starts in the afternoon with coverage then more in primetime and even more late night. Not much else on as it is a Saturday night.

Prime Picks

XX Olympic Winter Games (NBC): Three and a half hours of skiing, luge and skating event coverage.

Solid Selections

48 Hours Mystery (CBS): Repeat where a respected professor is thought to be behind a murder.

Die Another Day (CBS): Two and a half hours of commercially interrupted Bond, James Bond, not to mention Halle Berry and that bikini clad walk out of the water.

Other Options

The Green Mile (ABC): Tom Hanks as a prison guard in 1935 who thinks that a death row inmate may be innocent and may have the power to heal. Runs three hours.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): Get some ideas for romantic dinners that can’t miss in this repeat episode. Might be worth watching with Valentine’s Day coming up next week.

Trading Spaces (TLC): Doug fixes up a bedroom while Laurie takes on a messy office.

Wild Weddings (TLC): Get a load of some wacky weddings with mistakes by ministers and funky themed weddings.

Sports Notes

ESPN has the 2006 NFL Pro Bowl Skills Competition during the day. Later you will find Stanford at Gonzaga for some NCAA hoops action. You will also find coverage of the Winter Olympics on NBC during the day.

Late Night

MADtv on FOX is a repeat with special guest Pamela Anderson. Saturday Night Live will not be on tonight but you will find more coverage of the Winter Olympics.
