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.

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.

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.

Canada, Germany tie for bobsled gold

  Canada, Germany tie for bobsled gold Canada's Justin Kripps and Germany's Francesco Friedrich won gold medals after a dead-heat in the men's Olympic two-man bobsleigh on Monday. Kripps and four-times world champion Friedrich both finished with identical times of three minutes 16.86 seconds. Latvia's Oskars Melbardis took bronze.It was the first dead-heat in the Olympic two-man bobsleigh competition since Nagano in 1998.

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.
