What channel is it on? NBC Sports?

Yes it is.
I like green though.

It's the most exiting one. It's the buildup (last 10 km) to the last 500 m where they all start pushing like maniacs to cross the line first.
The king of the mountain is fun to watch as well.
It's the rider who gets the most mountain points who wins the polka dot jersey.
Even an average climber can win it if he wins enough intermediate stages within a stage.
Sometimes they allow points for 3 to 4 climbs per stages so it's worth the effort.

I just cannot find the interest in watching it. It isn't exciting to me. Honestly it is like NASCAR where the crashes are the most interesting part.

:O You can't compare an international competition with a redneck one where the cars are turning to the left all the time!

it's not a sport to watch at all the time.
it's a sport to listen at while doing other stuff. and look up when you mention that the announcers are acting different.

If we're so boring why don't you add a constructive comment about the TDF?
Pierre Rolland keeps his polka dot jersey, Simon Gerrants win the 3rd stage.by barely beating Sagan to the finish line.
The race itself was boring to me but man what a great landscape!
The Corsican part is over, tomorrow they start the team trial back in France.

The Orica GreenEdge wins the team time trial with 25:56
Second place is Omega-Pharma-Quick Step with 25:57
Third place is Sky ProCycling with 25:59
Fourth place is Team Saxo-Tinkoff with 26:05
So now we have different times for the Yellow jersey!
