Winter Olympics8/7c NBC The team of Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo go for China's first-ever gold medal in the pairs figure skating final tonight, having won the bronze in two previous Olympics. While their toughest competition should come from German and Russian pairs, a couple of up-and-coming U.S. pairs could be interesting. Caydee Denney and Jeremy Barrett, together for only 18 months, surprised many by winning the U.S. Nationals last month, while Barrett's girlfriend, Amanda Evora, with partner Mark Ladwig, took second and the other Olympic berth. Also on the ice, the U.S. goes for its third straight gold in speedskating's 500m, with Tucker Fredericks a long shot to follow Casey FitzRandolph (2002) and Joey Cheek (2006) to the top of the podium. Seth Wescott, the 2006 winner in the inaugural snowboard cross, is back to try for his second straight gold. Daytime events feature what looks to be America's best-ever cross-country team, featuring World Championship silver medalist Kikkan Randall in the women's 10km.Read on for previews of The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love, Glenn Martin, DDS, Greek and Damages.
