2014 winter olympics meredith vieira host gi Olympics 2014 poll: How did Meredith Vieira do as Olympics host?

The 2014 Winter Olympics offered a new milestone on Friday, Feb. 14. Meredith Vieira stepped in for Bob Costas and became the first woman to host the Olympics on U.S. television.

How did she do as a Winter Games host?

It wasn’t exactly planned for Vieira to be the host, even though she was already in Russia as a special correspondent for NBC (and co-hosted the opening ceremony). But when veteran Olympics host Bob Costas came down with a serious eye infection he had to take some time off. Matt Lauer was the first substitute before Vieira took his place.
