Amiens, France, on Tuesday. Dozens of young
men rioted in a troubled district in northern France
after weeks of tensions, pulling drivers from their cars
and stealing the vehicles, and burning a school and a
youth center. The police department in Amiens says at
least 16 officers were hurt by the time the riot ended
Tuesday, some by buckshot.

Viewers were seeing
red after NBC cut away from its coverage of the Olympics closing
ceremony to hype a sitcom featuring a monkey. After the
previously scheduled preview of "Animal Practice" aired at 11
p.m. Sunday, followed by local news, NBC returned at
midnight to finish with an eight-minute medley by The Who. Then host Bob Costas delivered an Olympics postscript before
signing off after just 35 minutes in all.
Twitter lit up with complaints. Disgruntled viewer Nina L.
Diamond seemed to speak for many. She tweeted that, thanks to
this kind of monkey business, NBC has made itself even less
popular than Congress. Meanwhile, viewers feeling duped
might have noted a musical omission by The Who, which skipped
this classic hit: "Won't Get Fooled Again."

and guitarist Pete Townshend perform during the
closing ceremony at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
