The annual flurries of new TV programs that rain down every January have been a little more sporadic this year, as networks wait out the Torino tornado.
NBC and its sister nets are promising to televise a record 416 hours of Winter Olympics coverage Feb. 10-26. That provides the Peacock web with a major promotional launching pad exiting the Torino Games while establishing a formidable obstacle for the competition.
