It's hard to remember a better night at the Winter Olympics U.S. viewers had on Tuesday night. Can Wednesday possibly live up to the thrill? Let's look back at what happened on Tuesday in Pyeongchang and look ahead to what's in store for primetime coverage on Wednesday night.

Fox News Yanks John Moody’s Incendiary “Darker, Gayer” Olympics Column: “Does Not Reflect Views Or Values” At Company

  Fox News Yanks John Moody’s Incendiary “Darker, Gayer” Olympics Column: “Does Not Reflect Views Or Values” At Company Fox News yanked an online column about the Winter Olympics, written by longtime Fox News executive John Moody, in which he blasts the U.S. Olympics Committee, saying it would like to change the Olympics motto from ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’ to ‘Darker, Gayer, Different.'” “If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work,” Moody complained in the column, that was posted Wednesday and pulled Friday around 10:30 AM PT, after getting blasted “If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work,” Moody complained in the column, which was posted Wednesday and pulled Friday around 10:30 AM PT after getting blasted on Twitter and in statements issued by various human rights organizations.

A thrilling day on the track also saw big developments outside of competition. Post to Facebook. Things went awfully well for the U.S. women's track and field team on Wednesday . Best images from Aug. 17 at the Rio Olympics . Fullscreen.

Now that Wednesday , Valentine's Day , is upon us, however, we've got you covered with everything else Around the Web Promoted by Taboola. Our Latest Stories. 2018 Olympics : How, who to watch Tuesday. If you missed Shaun White in the halfpipe on Tuesday night , here's what you missed .

What you missed

Snowboard: "What did I miss," you ask? Oh, not much. Just the world's best Winter Olympic athlete putting together a thrilling, pressure-packed, hold-your-breath, text your friends, wake up your daughter with your uncontrollable shouting snowboard run that won him a record-setting, walk-off gold medal. You know; NBD.

No hyperbole; this was the best Winter Olympics moment for Team USA since Dan Jansen won gold in 1994. BTW, Jansen's gold that night was the 50th ever won by the U.S. team. White's was No. 100.

Pairs figure skating: The short programs were mostly nondescript, except for that guy dressed like Pee-wee Herman.

GOP And Democratic Lawmakers Hijack Senate Hallway For Olympic Curling Game

  GOP And Democratic Lawmakers Hijack Senate Hallway For Olympic Curling Game Colorado’s U.S. senators from both sides of the aisle got into the Winter Olympics spirt on Wednesday afternoon. Republican Cory Gardner and Democrat Michael Bennet set aside their political differences to indulge in an impromptu curling match, using makeshift equipment, in a Senate hallway:Since Colorado has the most #WinterOlympics athletes of any state, @SenBennetCO and I decided to have our very own bipartisan Senate-style Olympics. But it's a good thing the pros at @usacurl are representing us in #PyeongChang2018. pic.twitter.

Skiing: There was some movement on the skiing front Wednesday. Instead of immediately postponing the women's slalom, the FIS announced a few delays and then pulled the plug. Progress? I've yet to hear the plan for what happens if we get to the weekend without a race but it won't be good. The weather is allegedly supposed to improve though.

Ice hockey: Team USA made its men's debut on Wednesday night and things went well - for about 45 minutes. But a 2-0 lead was quickly erased, with Slovenia getting the equalizer with 90 seconds left and going on to win in overtime. The Americans hadn't lost their first Olympic game since 1998.

Snowboard: Just watch it again. It's that awesome.

What to watch

Skiing: We're supposed to see a double feature on Wednesday night with both the men's downhill (9:30 p.m. ET) and ladies' giant slalom (final run at 11:45 p.m. ET) on the schedule. Don't get your hopes up. At this rate, they're just going to put the men's downhill on the bunny slope. If the races do happen, look for Mikaela Shiffrin to contend for gold in her 2018 Olympic debut. The 22-year-old could be on the cusp of the most prolific Winter Games ever for an American skier. The men's downhill has no Americans in contention, but that's no reason not to watch the fastest event in Pyeongchang.

Cross country: This is a big one. Jessica Diggins of Afton, MN will try and become the first American to ever medal in a cross country skiing event. Oddsmakers list her as the third favorite with 12/1 odds of winning gold. This goes at 1 a.m. ET (Thursday morning). If you have the means, I highly recommend it.

Figure skating: The pairs have their free skate, with China owning a slight lead over Russia. (I'm done saying Olympic Athletes from Russia. They're Russian. Deal with it.) Canada's team of Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford is still in striking distance of gold and well positioned for a medal. The U.S. team - married couple Alexa Scimeca Knierim and Chris Knierim - qualified in 14th place out of 16 teams.

Alex Ovechkin takes shot at Gary Bettman over Olympics

  Alex Ovechkin takes shot at Gary Bettman over Olympics The landscape of Olympic hockey looks a lot different in PyeongChang than it looked four years ago, and that is largely because the NHL decided it will not allow its players to compete in the Winter Games.&nbsp;Ovechkin, who has spoken in the past about how important winning an Olympic medal would be to him, was asked on Tuesday if he has been watching the Olympics. He used the opportunity to take a shot at NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

Luge - It's the final day of luge competition and the always enjoyable team relay that finishes up an exciting week on the track. And by "always" I mean "in 2014, the first time it was ever contested at an Olympics" and by "enjoyable" I mean "watch a sport timed by thousandths decided by seconds by four Germans." Next time, Germany should be allowed to enter unlimited team into the event, just to see how many places the luge giant could sweep. I'm thinking top seven.
