Olympic TV highlights for Thursday: Start your day with a U.S. curling semifinal

Now that the U.S. men’s curling team has settled its beef with its most visible opponent — who else but the female lead of “Look Who’s Talking” — the Americans can finally set their sights on something that, days ago, seemed about as crazy as a Twitter feud with Kirstie Alley.

After three straight wins to end round-robin play and secure a No. 3 seed in the tournament semifinals, the United States will face three-time defending Olympic champion Canada on Thursday. The Americans, seeking their first medal since 2006, were 2-4 over their first six matches before an upset of Canada — their first ever in Olympic competition — ignited their turnaround.
