Bob Costas to anchor studio coverage on final night of XXII Olympic Winter Games

"Sunday Night Football" commentators Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth, and Olympic correspondent Vladimir Pozner, will host NBC's coverage of the Sochi Olympics closing ceremony tomorrow night, the final night of the XXII Olympic Winter Games from Sochi, Russia. Bob Costas will anchor NBC's studio coverage.

The closing ceremony will include Russian pageantry and the parade of flags and athletes from countries participating in the Sochi Games. The ceremony culminates with the extinguishment of the Olympic flame.

In addition, the host feed's coverage of the closing ceremony will be live streamed at 11 a.m. ET via "TV Everywhere" to authenticated cable, satellite and telco customers on NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports Live Extra app. The stream will contain natural sound. As has been the case throughout the Games, the primetime show will not be streamed.

Immediately prior to the closing ceremony, NBC will begin its primetime coverage at 7 p.m. ET/PT with the documentary "Nancy & Tonya." Costas will be joined in the studio by Nancy Kerrigan following the documentary.

In "Nancy & Tonya," Mary Carillo looks back at the events surrounding the ladies' figure skating competition at the 1994 Olympic Winter Games, one of the most dramatic events in Winter Olympics history. The documentary features an exclusive sit-down with Kerrigan and a one-on-one interview with Tonya Harding.

Following is tomorrow night's schedule on NBC (all times ET/PT):

•7-8:30 p.m.

"Nancy & Tonya"

•8:30-10:36 p.m.
