I will follow USA basketball and menís tennis as long as Djokovic is still in it. Other than that, I will check in on the medal count and I expect that that will be about it.

Definitely Women's Gymnastics.  Simone Biles is must-see TV.

I'm as interested in the Olympics as I am in Wipeout, American Ninja Warrior and Battle of the Network Stars.

Basketball, menís and womenís tennis, womenís gymnastics, maybe boxing and some of the swimming events.
Quoting Nick from the now locked Ime thread:

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

Men's basketball because of Tatum.  That is it for me.

In Olympics I usually watch all the swimming, the short distance track & field, beach volleyball, and gymnastics.

Probably anything I stumble upon, something about the best of the best competing against each other is really entertaining, no matter the sport.

Basketball is #1 followed by anything track & field.

Swimming, track/marathon, basketball, handball.

Skateboarding should be pretty wild to watch too.

Honestly, whatever happens to be on when I turn on the tv. Nothing is that fascinating to me, but nothing absolutely sucks either. I imagine the most popular sports will get the most airtime - I assume lots of Swimming, Track and Field, and Gymnastics.

Judo, wrestling, some track and field events (100m, high jump, pole vault and throwing events) and swimming events.

Basketball is the only team sport I'll follow probably. Waiting for E-Sports to be there ;D
