The Americans ' boycott ' the TV coverage of Rio Olympics!

According to a new Gallup poll, only 48 percent of Americans plan to watch a "great deal" or "fair amount" of the Olympics, while 51 percent plan to watch "not much" or "none at all." These numbers mark a huge decline in interest from what Gallup has typically found since it began polling Americans about their plans to watch the Olympics in 2000.

This is pretty remarkable, especially considering the consistency of interest in the four previous Summer Games. The Olympics offer pretty much the same thing every summer they come around. There is agony, ecstasy, triumph and defeat. There are inspirational stories. There are records broken. There are winners awkwardly biting their gold medals as if they expect to find chocolate inside.
