I was in the U.K. when the games began. Was watching them live on TV there. Monday flew to Dulles (one of our favorite dull airports). Duller to watch them here in the U.S.
There’s a five-hour time delay. By the time I see the games on TV, I already know the winners.
Which games are dull to watch? Rowing? Same motions over and over again? Same countries always win (U.S., U.K., Germany)?

As far as watching is concerned; I find the shotput particularly dull as the athlete moves very little and the result of their monumental effort is a resounding thud.
Not sure I agree regarding rowing, having been at the rowing lake for a day it was in fact rather exciting. The dullest olympic sport must be one where there is no crowd cheering the participants towards the finishing line, eg archery or shooting where unlike shot put, they don’t even move very much.
