Does Skating with Celebrities hurt Hamilton's Olympic credibility?

Scott Hamilton and Summer Sanders of Skating with
CelebritiesI accidentally kept my local FOX station on after watching the "I've got hand!" Seinfeld rerun, and noticed something odd when Skating With Celebrities came on the air: Scott Hamilton was hosting. Since I've never watched the show, I was kind of surprised by this. I mean, he's been a skating analyst at the Olympics for years now, and he's currently in Torino as we speak. So, at the same time we see Scott interviewing Emily Hughes and Sasha Cohen, he'll also be introducing such figure skating luminaries as Dave Coulier and Todd Bridges.

I wonder if viewers are going to think a little less of Scott's analysis now that he's also hosting a cheesy reality show. We know NBC was a little nervous, but they added Hamilton to their Torino team, anyway. Of course, given the recent history of Olympic figure skating, maybe the FOX show is the classier gig, after all.

(Actually, I don't personally care. I just wanted to put up a photo of Hamilton with his Skating co-host, Summer Sanders. Isn't she cute?)

Apparently you have never watched the show AND never read Anna's recaps. :P

For what it's worth, I don't think it will have any effect on how he is perceived. He's a good guy and he knows his stuff.

And yes, Summer is a cutie.
