This week, we've got the Olympics on our mind.

The U.S. is dominating the games.  NBC - not so much.

The network's coverage of the games has been widely criticized.  We'll take a closer look at how well NBC is really doing and whether there's anything they can do, given the current media culture.

We also take our usual tour around Wall Street.

The consumer was in focus on Wall Street last week, with retail sales and a bunch of earnings reports from major retailers.  This continues this week, with industry big dog Wal-Mart leading the way.  

And we check in on the Fed, looking at when a rate hike is likely to happen.
