Is anyone else watching Tennis Channel thinking Mary Carillo is legitimately drunk?
Either Mary Carillo's water was spiked or she's been indulging in some of Miami's nightlife. Yikes. Embarassing.
With respect: whadda f**k is Mary Carillo talking about most of the time!?
Oh, dear. Mary Carillo, please stop with the impersonations/accents. You made Lindsay (and all of us) squirm.
Why did Mary Carillo just call Rafa "Yannick Noah?" Did I hear that right? Either I'm crazy or she is.
Mary Carillo? I believe you have taken over Pam Shriver's spot as my least favorite sportscaster, followed closely by justin gimelstob. Elek tells me it's just that I haven't heard Pam in a while. Maybe. Can't we just listen to the European guys? We deserve better. Do I need to hear 8X that the poor Italian girl's dad is a thief? At least they admit that they are afraid to say anything against Federer or else he will refuse to give them an interview. Sound off.
I appreciated Mary Carillo's fine documentary about the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding incident of twenty years ago. but enjoyed even more the interview afterwards which Bob Costas did with Nancy. It underscored what a classy and surprisingly articulate person she is- and the film was a moving celebration of her astonishing courage through all she endured. I'll always be a fan.
The Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan drama is STILL compelling 20yrs. later. And props to Mary Carillo for a fantastic piece. The whole *** thing still makes me shake my head.
Awesome ice dance to "I've Had the Time of my Life". Not sure what to think about the flesh tone body suit under the little blue outfit worn tonight by the Italian bronze medalist. Mary Carillo needs to have her dentures adjusted because she sounds like my dad when she talks.

American sportscaster Mary Carillo begins a news broadcast in the middle of the night with Olympic badminton talk. However, since most US viewers are asleep during this time, she decides to talk about something different...
Hey, Monarchs! Just watched a very nice piece Mary Carillo did for NBC about Polina Edmunds. They featured Archbishop Mitty very prominently and showed the send off rally they held for her. It was very cool to see some of the familiar places(like the front lobby and the gym) on National tv! She starts today--go Polina!
Mary Carillo visited the Indian Wells Tennis Garden so see what she says about why you should make plans to attend tournment!
Exactly 20 years to the day after the 1994 Olympic Winter Games, Mary Carillo looks back at the events leading up to, during and following the ladies’ figure skating competition in the one-hour special, "Nancy & Tonya." The documentary, featuring an exclusive sit-down with Nancy Kerrigan and a one-on-one interview with Tonya Harding, debuts this Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT on NBC – immediately prior to the Closing Ceremony.
Mary Carillo looks into the history of the sport of curling, from the intricate stone creation to the sport's first "grand match."

It needs to be said, Mary Carillo should win a gold for commentary!
One of my favorite things about watching NBC Olympics is the human interest stories that Mary Carillo does. I look forward to them every 2 years. Loved the story on the Matryoshka dolls and also the vodka. Went right out and bought Russian Standard vodka to try it. Wish I knew how to contact the family who makes the Matryoshka dolls by hand. I'd love to buy a set or two.
I love watching the little side stories Mary Carillo reports on for the Olympic telecast & she was great as the voice of Darth Vader too.
Mary Carillo goes inside the story of Russian nesting dolls also known as matryoshka dolls, the sets of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside the other.
People, this stuff is crazy. I didn't even bother posting Johnny & Tara, Kristi Yamaguchi, Nancy Kerrigan (sans Tonya), Mary Carillo, Meredith and god knows who I'm forgetting all shoved into the Today show set. My favorite moment was when Jenna Bush dropped the F bomb. This is my life.
Mary Carillo remains the best part of NBC Olympics coverage.
I am watching Tonya Harding being interviewed by Mary Carillo and Mary asked her about January 6, 1994 and she looks at Mary and asked WHICH DAY IS THAT, still lying after all these years.,..
NBC is doing a totally poor job on these Olympics...let's have more sports and less talking heads like Mary Carillo and Bobby talking stupid 20 year old stories...geez...
OMG do we really need to hear Tonya Harding ever talk again? Especially with Mary Carillo. ITS OVER!
Mary Carillo has always been one of my favorites.
Who's voice is deeper, Mary Carillo or Bob Costas? I'm undecided.
Is it just me or does anyone else wish Mary Carillo was doing the Olympics instead of Bob Costas?
Realizing that time must be filled, and that US audiences are adverse to watching any other country's athletes perform - given all that - why must Mary Carillo revisit the whole Tanya Harding - Nancy Kerrigan mess? And I like Mary Carillo as a sports journalist - her glimpses of life in the Rodina have been interesting and well done. And Nancy Kerrigan still looks like Kate Hepburn! And Tanya Harding still looks like Tugboat Tanya.
NBC's coverage of the 2014 Olympic commercials is amazing.how about some *ing sports? 6 minutes Of coverage, 4 minutes of Mary Carillo, 15 minutes of commercials in last 25 minutes
Thanks for the heads up on The Return of Bob Costas, Wendy Fencl! Had to laugh, thinking of Nanette Beer, as Mary Carillo joined Bob to talk about her new documentary revisiting the Nancy Kerrigan / Tonya Harding debacle, again. Great broadcasting all around! And, Mary Ellen Woods, I figured you weren't watching the Olympics when you talked about dancing to the Beatles anniversary special instead of ice figure skating, ice luge and ice speed skating.What?
unlimited calling, voip, phone service
A least NBC has the foresight to have Bob Costas bring in Mary Carillo for a little male perspective.
Are we sure Mary Carillo isn't really Marv Carillo?
Mary Carillo talking to Tonya Harding. What did I do to deserve that kind of pain?
The burning question on everyone's mind is... IS MARY CARILLO A *** !
NBC Olympic talking heads Bob Costas and Mary Carillo ... he likely is capable of bearing her child.
I swear I think Mary Carillo used to be a guy!!
Mary Carillo sounds like she's on acid whenever they have her on camera. Maybe that's the real reason for Bob's watery eyes.
It is deeply disturbing to me that Mary Carillo is explaining the Harding/Kerrigan incident as though her audience knows nothing about it. As if, perhaps, they had not yet been born. *shudder*
Welcome back Bob Costas, and doesn't Mary Carillo have the best job??
Just tuned in to the Olympics again -- Is Mary Carillo 7 feet tall, or is Bob Costas 4 feet tall?
I consider myself to have a relatively lower octave voice. Mary Carillo has me beat all day long!!!
Did I mention I got a tennis lesson from Mary Carillo?
Winter Olympics Russia bashing. Baltimore Sun By Thomas M. Barrett February 16, 2014 The Olympics have begun, and it's clear already that one sport is still flourishing — Russia bashing. Or more precisely, awkward American back flips over exactly how to depict Russia. Only a few days in, NBC committed factual errors, gross distortions and patronizing enthusiasms. During a fluff piece on the Trans-Siberian Railway, the tsar who initiated its construction was referred to as "Nicholas III." There never was a Nicholas III; anyone with a passing familiarity with Russian history knows that Nicholas II was the last tsar. The Trans-Siberian was initiated during the reign of Alexander III, Nicholas II's father. This gaffe is the equivalent of a Russian broadcaster calling our 26th president Woodrow Roosevelt. Alexander III was not an obscure figure. A simple Google search could have caught this error. If NBC broadcasters are going to try to be knowledgeable about Russia and take upon themselves the duty of unrav ...

Thank you Mary Carillo for being the only bright spot for NBC's coverage, in the cultural presentations of Russia.
Dear NBC - Thank you for covering all the cliche russian stereotypes. Thank you for the facinating "taste test" of Vodka. Thank you for sending that Fauxman Mary Carillo to Siberia to.shock me, shock me.tell us how COLD Siberia is. Thank you again for the in depth coverage by Mary Carillo about the Ancient art of Russian Nesting Dolls or as they are known in russia, Matryoshka dolls. Seriously, they've only been around about 120 years and they are inspired by a Doll from JAPAN. I don't remember hearing that mentioned by Mary though.
while i don't like the interruption of sport, the human-interest olympic interludes give me an opportunity to ogle that handsome Mary Carillo.
Every time Mary Carillo talks, an angel loses its wings.
I already saw this matrioshka feature, Mary Carillo!!!
Am I the only one who was astounded listening to Mary Carillo speak with Lester Holt on this morning?! They were discussing medal chances for the next week and after using "normal" terms when discussing everything else, when she got to the female USA hockey team she said that when they play Canada they get "cranky" and moody. She then referred to them as chicks with sticks. Really?! Lester's response was that he couldn't get away with that, but neither should she!!
Here's something I don't understand. Mary Carillo has been busting her butt and doing a great job working as both an Olympic analyst/commentator and late night host for over 15 years. She's definitely paid her dues. So, Bob Costas gets pink eye, and who gets to be the first ever female Olympics primetime host? Meredith Viera! That, folks, is just plain WRONG, and I cannot understand the rationale behind it. BOO, NBC!!
Anyone else tired of Bob Costas talking about his eyes? The Games can go on, Bob - really you're not as big a deal as you think you are. It's about athletes - not hosts (except my cousin Mary Carillo, who runs circles around all of you :)

OMG, Johnny Weir is wearing a hot pink suit jacket tonight and kind of looks like Mary Carillo with straight hair and bad taste.

Two article assignment: Under Entertainment in the Santa Cruz Sentinel Eye infection ends Bob Costas' lengthy Olympics hosting streak Sarah Glen, Posted Tuesday Feb. 11, 2014 10:58AM EST |Updated 36 minutes ago Despite staring down a nasty eye infection just a few days into the 2014 Winter Olympics, veteran NBC reporter Bob Costas is looking on the bright side. "I'm looking at it this way: My eyes can't get any redder, no matter what I do," Costas said before downing a swig of vodka on-air with Mary Carillo Monday night. NBC announced Tuesday morning that "Today" host Matt Lauer will sub in for Costas during the Tuesday evening broadcast. The change marks an end to Costas' streak of 157 consecutive appearances as NBC's Olympic anchor. Tuesday night will be the first time since 1988 that Costas has not hosted NBC's primetime coverage of the Olympics. "I was trying to throw a complete game here, but I think we're going to have to go to the bullpen," Costas said. - Under Sports in the San Jose Mercury News A ...

If you have never seen Mary Carillo’s Epic Badminton Monologue NOW IS YOUR TIME:
It's stories like this one airing right now on NBCSN that are why I LOVE Mary Carillo. I would have enjoyed doing this story on Russian Ballet so much!!
80 in los angeles. Wow. Olympics just aren't grabbing me. Maybe the warm weather there. Is this the winter olympics. Where are those wonderful european mouuntain villages. Where is mary carillo
This morning, we posted NBC anchor Mary Carillo's 2004 rant about badminton because we had never seen it before and we wanted to share it with the world. Carillo just wrote an email to us, explaining how that monologue made it on the air:
UPDATE, 5:50 PM PT: "We're back now with a good opportunity to welcome in our Mary Carillo, and she’s about to bring us our nightly dose of Russian cultu
Just wondering, is Mary Carillo and Cris Collinsworth the same person?
WATCH: Lifestyles of the Rich and Russian. Mary Carillo shows lavish side of Russian culture.
Can I just say Mary Carillo is my favorite part of the entire Olympics broadcast?! Oh, and thank you NBC for benching Costas. I forgot to say that yesterday. His eyes were making me sick. (Oh the compassion of a nurse!!)
My guess is that Mary Carillo was once know as Berry Carillo before the surgery. If ya know what I mean.
I think Mary Carillo and Cris Collinsworth are one & the same. Not sure how they di that voice-change trick. They could be twins!
Ha! Love that Mary Carillo called doubles luge "a bar bet gone bad". In other news, I want to be her when I grow up.
Mary Carillo is doing an excellent job covering the cultural side of Russia - as a former dance teacher I thought her segment on the influence of ballet on ice skating was spectacular!
Mary Carillo wondered following her special segment on Russian vodka production during the Monday-Tuesday overnight Olympics telecast. *** straight, Carillo — and you're the Hoda. “I'm not really a vodka guy, but look at it this way: My eyes ...
Would somebody call the Russian police and report Mary Carillo as a terrorist? I know NBC is about to throw her in our face.
NBC reporter Mary Carillo once gave a very passionate speech about how badminton is played at her house during the Athens Summer Olympic Games in 2004.
Is it merely coincidence that Chris Collinsworth and Mary Carillo are never in the same room?
2.11.2014, 10:32 PM Winter Olympics: Bob Costas' eye infection becomes Sochi storyline ROB CARR/GETTY Bob Costas during the NFL season, before his now infamous eye infection during the 2014 Sochi Games. At dinner conversations around the city, at all-important soirees where the elite meet, they are not talking about Obamacare or who won the gold medal in women’s slopestyle snowboarding. They all ask a more important, pressing question: “What’s up with Bob Costas’ eyes?” Every Olympics has a storyline. Going into Sochi it was the threat of terrorism. The weather. The media’s incomplete accommodations. Whether Vladimir Putin would take his shirt off. Now it’s Costas’ eyes. Any day now, NBC suits will be trading in their stately Olympic overture for Crystal Gayle singing “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.” Or in Costas’ case, pink. Make no mistake, Bob (Rapping Roberto) Costas is now officially bigger than these Olympics. He is the story. For anyone who has not been paying attention ( ...
Just my personal feelings, but I don't think I'm alone in questioning the wisdom of NBC Sports on the Bob Costas fill-in decision. I would much rather see Mary Carillo in the anchor chair! Very disappointed that Matt Lauer will be filling in. Mary Carillo has been part of Olympic coverage for years and has earned it!
Tune in to NBC's Prime Time Olympics coverage tonight to see Matt Lauer and Mary Carillo present a feature on EMIN shot in Moscow last month. Due to wrap up tonight's broadcast at 12.55am (EST) on NBC
Mary Carillo an NBC sports reporter and former professional tennis player was stalling during a 3AM broadcast from the Athens Summer Games. What began as an exploration of the difference between recreational and Olympic badminton turned into one of…… [ 19 more words. ]
Eye don't get it. Washed eyes with Visine last night instead of Stoli, combed my beard, wore my best skinny pants, and Mary Carillo said nothing about how awesome I looked! What does Bob have that eye don't have, besides hair and conjunctivitis?

Granted, I've always preferred the Summer Games... Yet, this is honestly the most boring of all the Winter Olympics that I have ever watched. And I've watched them all. Often staying up all hours of the day and night to catch the action in real time-a necessity in years past, as there was a but a tiny fraction of the events covered in prime time. I know we're not doing as well as hoped, and that may honestly be a significant part of my problem. I know that for the first time in decades, I have not kept up with the exploits of the competing athletes leading up to the Games (other than the ice skaters and a few veterans in other fields, I don't recognize a single name), and I know I'm older and may have simply run the course on this venue... But, I don't think it's any of the above. I just feel that-despite Mary Carillo's lovely "puff pieces" on Russian lifestyles-this has been a bit of a snoozer. Literally. It's been damned near impossible to keep Michael awake while nodding off myself. So maybe I should s ...
Mary Carillo was once the second highest paid runway model. Only Doris Roberts earned more than Carillo.
I think NBC should've handed off Bob's job to Mary Carillo instead of Matt Lauer.
So into the Olympic broadcast, but wondering...what does Mary Carillo do during the 23 months in between Olympics?
The Olympics... Sarah Newcomb Mary Carillo does her culture piece every night... How did I of all people miss the vodka piece? The piece on Siberia was very interesting & it's very pretty... It was like -43 there... She's just realizing now that they use ballet in figure skating? Last night either Mary or Bob said Hockey wouldn't be Canada's national sport for long after one of the events (snowboarding, skiing idk which)... My point though is that LACROSSE is Canada's national sport! Not hockey! Just needed to get that out...
Also, I really hope Matt Lauer and Mary Carillo bleached down that whole area that Bob's been working in.
The Olympics: where Bob Costas and Mary Carillo make all other broadcasters look like amateurs.
Doesn't anyone at NBC have a comb and a mirror for Mary Carillo??
Mary Carillo is disturbing looking. Not quite man and certainly not quite woman.
It would appear Mary Carillo is growing into her new teeth...
Did Matt Lauer replace Bob Costas because of Bob's eye infection or because Bob and Mary Carillo were throwing back shots of vodka last night and he just couldn't handle the hangover? Hm??
Watch Mary Carillo speak for 1 minute, then ask yourself if you've ever seen hers and Gary Busey's teeth in the same place at the same time.
