Do they show them on TV?

Yes, except in the US where nobody bid for the rights. This is in contrast to the UK (C4), Australia (ABC), Brazil (RG and Sportv), Canada (CTV in en, RDS in fr), the EU (EBU) and specifically YLE in Finland, ARD and ZDF in Germany, Sky Italia in Italy, NHK in Japan, KBS in South Korea and TPTV in Thialand.

So in summary: Yes, it's on TV, unless you're in the USA (because the USA is full of fail).
