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 4x100-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.

Events to Watch:
Men's 4x200-Meter Freestyle Relay
The United States relay team narrowly lost to France in the 4x100-meter event after winning by an even smaller margin in Beijing. In this event, however, the race was not even close.
In 2008, the Americans dominated the field en route to a new world record and a gold medal. France will still be a difficult opponent, but the U.S. should find redemption here.
Women's 200-Meter Freestyle
This race will pit the current world record holder Federica Pellegrini of Italy against two young Americans looking to make a name for themselves.
Allison Schmitt won the Olympic Trials, but 17-year-old Missy Franklin is right on her back and seems to be improving every day.
Men's 200-Meter Individual Medley
Lochte defeated Phelps in the first of their two battles in these Olympics, but one of the best Olympians ever will not give up his crown without a fight.
The two are expected to finish with the gold and silver in this event, with the only question being which one gets which. This should be one of the most exciting events in the entire Olympics.
