@midnight Power Rankings (Aug 14-18)

It's a tournament week themed around the Olympics, which means four days of exciting hair cosplay from Chris Hardwick, a bevy of stars ostensibly from various nations, and lots of jokes about how they can't use the word "Olympics" or the rings. This is one of those rare weeks where nearly all the scores and decisions represented what I actually thought, although on points I think Flula Borg edged out Milana Vayntrub. But I don't begrudge her the gold medal in the slightest. Kudos to. Yakov Smirnoff for leaving Branson, MO and performing exactly how you'd expect.

  1. Flula Borg (Th)
  2. Gina Yashere (Th) 
  3. Milana Vayntrub (Th)
  4. Flula Borg (M)
  5. Milana Vayntrub (Th)
  6. Gina Yashere (T)
  7. Jon Dore (T)
  8. Maeve Higgins (M)
  9. Francisco Ramos (W)
  10. Maz Jobrani (T)
  11. Jimmy O Yang (W)
  12. Yakov Smirnoff (M)

With standout performances in every episode, it's tough to recommend any skips, but Wednesday featured the overall weakest set of contestants, so if you absolutely have to shave 22 minutes off your DVR reviewing time, that's the way to go.
  1. Thursday
  2. Monday
  3. Tuesday
  4. Wednesday
