Olympics: What to Watch Tonight -- Tune In to NBC!

Here's our quickie guide to the day's can't-miss Summer Olympic events

What a weekend! The Opening Ceremony kicked off with distinctly British pomp—not to mention the Queen appearing to jump out of a helicopter—and garnered a record 40.7 million viewers.

In the games, blind South Korean archer Im Dong-hyun set a world record, U.S. beach volleyball superstars Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh won their Saturday match, Jordyn Wieber failed to make the all-around final and Michael Phelps missed his first medal in 12 years securing Ryan Lochte’s reputation as the new man to beat.

So let’s get to it: Here’s what to catch tonight!

Tennis, all day through 3 p.m. ET, Bravo
Americans Andy Roddick and Venus Williams today take to Court 2 for their opening matches at the Olympics after rain washed out much of play at the All England Club over the weekend.

Women’s Basketball, 5:15 p.m., NBC Sports
