Depends....
....where in the US you live. NBC decided not to show it live, instead showing it with a time delay to maximise prime time advertising revenue. Thw west coast got it later than the east coast.
I'd like to have a moan here. Apparently NBC chose to cut to a Ryan Seacrest interview with Michael Phelps instead of showing the part of the opening ceremony which paid tribute to the victims of the 7/7 terrorist attacks in London, said attacks coming the day after it was announced that London would be the venue for the 2012 event. NBC's decision is disrespectful and offensive. How would the US have reacted if a tribute to the 9/11 victims was cut for an interview with a competitor from the UK?
Still, at least it lets us Brits know that the only terrorist victims which matter are US victims. Sorry to sound so bitter and twisted about this.

Re: Depends....
I'm sure you'll be able to find recordings on the web. Apparently there's going to be a DVD as well.

Quite a few bloggers from the US are wondering why Kenneth Brannagh was dressed up as Abraham Lincoln
