NBC

Leslie Jones is back for her special, endearing, and lo-fi brand of Olympic coverage in which she records her TV and screams her astonishment at the athletics playing out before her. In 2016, she took the Olympic world by storm with her tweets, now it’s a joy to see her bust out her camera phone once again to deliver possibly the most honest commentary of the Winter Olympics.

Jones has been at this all day. Seriously, since the start of the Olympics.
