The Ticker (Olympics Edition): CBS, NBC, CNN.com…

> Mark Spitz, who’s already made the rounds on NBC News, will be a guest on CBS’ The Early Show tomorrow morning. In a few hours, Michael Phelps will swim for a chance to tie Spitz’ record of seven gold medals. Spitz set that record at the 1972 Munich games. Then Phelps swims his final race Sunday morning (Beijing time) with a chance to break the Spitz record.

> On his blog, NBC’s Brian Williams writes about a dinner outing some of the Nightly staffers had in Beijing: “a menu featuring donkey meat (in a pot), braised bullfrog, hog hoof, and turtle. Our pals went with the Kung Pao chicken.”

> CNN is promoting an interview with Phelps set for four days from now. But the interview will not be on the network, it will be on CNN.com. The cable channel is inviting viewers to send in the questions via iReport, which Phelps may answer, Tuesday morning at 8:30amET.
