Everything you need to know about tonight's Olympic primetime coverage—without knowing what actually happened.

WOMEN’S INDIVIDUAL ALL-AROUND GYMNASTICS 
The world’s best gymnast doesn’t win gold—because Jordyn Wieber didn’t qualify for the all-around competition. It makes no sense that the U.S. can’t have three competitors in the all-around, but this is also the Olympics, where things not making sense actually makes sense. Anyway, you’ll forget about that if you watch the actual competition. Americans Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman, along with Russian Victoria Komova, are the favorites. It’s one of those competitions where no one really screws up and one person is greater than a bunch of other really great people. Some sport-transcending history gets made, but the winner is in doubt right up until the end.
