We’ll be ending the week with a little history lesson from Mr. Viggle. The day’s topic? The Olympics of course! George takes us back to 1900 when art, not medals, were the prizes awarded to the top international athletes. Instead of taking home a gold, silver, or bronze, winners received paintings because, Mr. Viggle explains, “the organizers thought the art was more valuable.” Oh have times have changed.
Of course, the 2014 Winter Games will soon be history after they come to a close this Sunday, February 23. It’s been just over two weeks of fun, games, and questionable living arrangements over in Sochi, Russia, and we can’t believe it’s flown by so quickly. Did you have a favorite event from this year’s Olympics? Love them all? Didn’t watch that much? Tell us in the comments below!

Despite how much Mr. Viggle loves the Games, however, they aren’t actually the only thing on TV. This weekend we suggest you get up to speed on The Walking Dead (which is kind of funny considering how slowly zombies move). A new episode aired on AMC last Sunday and next up is an episode called “Claimed.” Tune in to see what’s what this Sunday at 9 p.m.
