Although NBC has been saving the most popular Olympic events for prime time, fans can still watch the top events live online.
So far, swimming fans have seen Ryan Lochte defeat Michael Phelps in their first head-to-head battle, Dana Vollmer win a gold medal and the French team avenge its 2008 4×100-meter relay loss to the United States.
Unfortunately, those waiting to see the event on television almost certainly had the endings spoiled by any number of sources.
To watch the rest of the events live, follow this schedule and watch the races online.
