RIO DE JANEIRO -- The U.S. rowing team enters the last races of the Olympic regatta Saturday without a single medal but with big hopes of extending its winning streak in the womens eight.The Americans have won every major title in the event since 2006 and the eight racing in Rio looks as strong as ever. The team dominated its qualifying heat this week with lots of open water between the U.S. and second-placed Netherlands.Britain is intent on ending the U.S. dynasty and has come to Rio with a powerful crew. Still, the British eight was three seconds slower than the U.S. crew in the qualifiers.So far the rowing competition has not offered much delight for American fans at the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon. Felice Mueller and Grace Luczak just missed the podium Friday in the womens pair after dropping from second to fourth place during the 2-kilometer race.Im extremely disappointed, Mueller said. I commend our competitors. Theyre incredible athletes, but this isnt the race, this isnt the day that Grace and I were setting out to have.Britains Helen Glover and Heather Stanning retained their gold in the event, ahead of crews from New Zealand and Denmark.Historically a powerhouse in the sport, the U.S. has won at least two rowing medals in each Olympics since the 1980 Moscow Games, which the U.S. boycotted.The U.S. also is represented in two other medal races Saturday: mens eight, womens single sculls.Genevra Stone of Massachusetts was the second-fastest sculler in the semifinals. Shell face a tough lineup in the final, including New Zealands Emma Twigg, world champion Kimberley Brennan of Australia and Chinas Duan Jingli, who was the quickest in the semis.It will be a ripper of a final, Brennan said.Britain and Germany are the favorites in the mens eight but could be challenged by the U.S. crew, which had the fastest time in the repechage.In the mens single sculls, the epic rivalry between Olympic champion Mahe Drysdale of New Zealand and world champion Ondrej Synek of the Czech Republic continues. Either Drysdale or Synek has won gold at every world championship or Olympics since 2009.

NEW YORK -- The last time the Today show went to the summer Olympics, the break provided salve for its wounds. This years Rio trip offers an opportunity.The NBC morning show has found its footing after years in the wilderness, cutting into the advantage of ratings leader Good Morning America on ABC. Since viewers flock to the morning show of the Olympics rights holder, Today hopes to reintroduce itself to people who may have drifted away.The show has never been at a better place, so were excited for those additional eyeballs, said Noah Oppenheim, NBC News senior vice president in charge of the Today show .Today will import its cast to Brazil, and introduce new member Billy Bush, who is set to anchor the 9 a.m. hour after Natalie Morales departure. The exception is Savannah Guthrie, co-anchor with Matt Lauer of the first two hours, who is pregnant and decided to remain in New York because of concerns over the Zika virus. With Guthries political expertise, that could prove fortuitous in an election year.At the time of the London Olympics in 2012, Today had tumbled from first place in the ratings after its disastrous ouster of Ann Curry. It has remained No. 2 in viewership ever since.Oppenheim has sought to reorient the show toward news, adding some subtle changes that increase the sense of urgency. Lauer and Guthrie now anchor the shows first half hour alone and give the news headlines themselves, rather than passing them off to a separate newscaster. The anchors usually do big interviews together now, instead of separately.The `Today show at its best had always been the morning show that set the nations agenda, said Oppenheim, who took over at the beginning of last year. Its a news show at its heart, and what I wanted to do was make sure we lived up to that legacy.Seeking interviews that advance news stories is an important goal, too. Lauer was let on the plane when Donald Trump arrived in Cleveland for last months GOP convention, for example, and his sound bite of Melania Trump talking about writing her speech became valuable as the week went on.Billie Gold, research chief at the advertising firm Amplifi US, said she was a regular viewer of Today until she saw it was trying too hard to emulate the lighter touch of Good Morning America.ddddddddddddAt one point, I was turning it off, she said. I wanted the news and I felt like I wasnt getting the news. It was too much fluff. When Oppenheim came in, he made it more of a blend and they put the news back in.While the veteran Lauer seems more engaged, research shows that he hasnt recovered the popularity he enjoyed before many viewers seemed to blame the ugliness of the Curry incident on him. Lauers Q score was an impressive 23 in 2010 -- meaning 23 percent of people in a survey who knew Lauer considered him one of their favorites. By winter 2013, his score had tumbled to nine. Last winter, it was 11, according to Marketing Evaluations Inc., which makes the calculations.The whole debacle with Matt Lauer, I think its in the past now, Gold said.The Today show has cut the gap with GMA to an average of 177,000 viewers this year after being down by more than a half million in 2015, the Nielsen company said. Both shows are seen by between 4 and 5 million viewers each morning. This year, NBC has taken over the lead among viewers aged 25-to-54, a key demographic since advertising sales are based on that number.NBC isnt gaining viewers; in fact, its viewership is off 83,000 from 2015. But Good Morning America has been losing viewers at a much more rapid pace, Nielsen said.The real morning mover is CBS This Morning, which has gained more than 250,000 viewers since last year but still isnt seriously challenging the two leaders in ratings.History indicates that Today will dominate the ratings during the Olympics. The key will be keeping some of those new viewers when everyone gets home. GMA has an edge in older viewers, who tend to be more resistant to changing their habit, Gold said.It just makes it more incumbent upon us to make sure the product we put on in the morning is so compelling that people have to turn us on, Oppenheim said.---Follow David Bauder at twitter.com/dbauder.
