by Jean Bentley, posted Nov 3rd 2010 9:00AM
Bethenny FrankelABC announced the cast of its new series, 'Skating With the Stars,' on last night's episode of 'Dancing With the Stars.' The spinoff show will feature six celebrities learning how to figure skate with professionals.

Competing for the title are reality star Bethenny Frankel, actresses Sean Young and Rebecca Budig, musician Vince Neil, Olympic skier Jonny Moseley and actor/rapper Brandon Mychal Smith. Their professional partners will be announced soon, and Entertainment Weekly reports that the pros "won't necessarily be household names so don't hold out for, say, a Brian Boitano or a Kristi Yamaguchi."

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Hosts 'Thin Ice' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 22nd 2010 2:02AM
Thin Ice, Elisabeth HasselbeckElisabeth Hasselbeck hosted 'Figure Skating' (Sun., 7PM ET on ABC), a.k.a. 'Thin Ice,' a stunning display of ice dancing that also looked frighteningly dangerous. One wrong slip and slash! Somebody's head gets taken off. That would just be messy for the Zamboni driver.

Hasselbeck asked one of the skaters if he got permission from his partner's husband to leap over her head. "I did, but he wasn't too keen on the idea," he said. We can just imagine.

Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek On Not Doing a Quad Jump (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 24th 2010 12:20AM
Larry King Live, Evan Lysacek, Winter OlympicsGeez, a guy wins a gold medal and all he gets is grief. Figure skater Evan Lysacek is getting six kinds of misery from Russian silver medalist Evgeni Plushenko for not doing a quad jump in his routine.

Lysacek has his reasons. On 'Larry King Live' (weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN), he explained that he had a stress fracture in his left foot last year, which started bothering him while training the quad prior to the Olympics.

"I didn't want my Olympics to be the same experience as I had at the World Championships, where I was wondering if I'd get through it. So the solution was just to alleviate the pressure on the left foot and take just that one element out."

And we just have to mention that Lysacek looks like he jumped out of a British rock band from 1962, which is not at all a bad thing.

Shaun White's Theory on Why Figure Skaters Cry (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 23rd 2010 2:38AM
The Colbert Report, Shaun WhiteIt's the question we've all been wondering about, and Stephen Colbert asked it on 'The Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30 PM ET on COM).

Why do the figure skaters burst into tears after learning they've won a gold medal at the 'XXI Winter Olympics,' and yet the snowboarders like Shaun White are tear-free?

White has a theory on that. "I imagine that they've gotta be sitting there like, 'Man, I wore this outfit and I still didn't even win.'" Yeah, that's what we thought.

NBC Plans 835 Hours of Olympics Coverage

by Jane Murphy, posted Jan 14th 2010 4:18PM
The Vancouver Olympics is not just NBC's upcoming hiatus from the Leno vs. Conan late-night wars. It's actually, you know, the Olympics, that edge-of-your seat showcase for quadrennial favorites like short track skater (and occasional fox trotter) Apolo Anton Ohno, and a launching pad for new American sweethearts (Minnesotan Lindsey Vonn is a downhill favorite) .

Nearly every network of the NBC empire (with the notable exception of Bravo) will air Olympic events. It will add up to more than 825 hours of triple axels and double-takes (will German pairs contenders Savchenko & Szolkowy really skate to "Send in the Clowns" -- in clown make-up?!) According to the Hollywood Reporter, this is the greatest number of Winter Games broadcast hours ever offered.

What to Watch: November 2-8

by Stephanie Earp, posted Nov 2nd 2009 2:00AM

V (November 3, 8 pm, CTV/ABC)

The latest adaptation of this venerable sci-fi franchise is so flashy, I thought the previews were for a feature film. Here's the basic scoop: good-looking aliens come to Earth, cure all our illnesses, seem nice, but are actually evil. One of them even refuses an interview with Scott Wolf's reporter character, which is reason enough for rebellion, if you ask me. The buzz on this pilot is it's the best thing to come down the pipe in ages.

Skating with Celebrities: Part 6 of 7

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 28th 2006 3:12PM
skating part 6Part 6 of 7? You know what that means... we aren't going to find out who the winner is until Thursday next week.

This episode was really a drag. And when I say "drag", I mean that they really dragged this one out to fill an entire hour without actually announcing the winners. The episode began with a recap of who got voted off when, and then all the skaters returned for encore performances. Todd Bridges is awkward and mechanical on the ice, reminding everybody why he was the first one to be booted off this competition. Kurt Browning is sporting a bald head? In the middle of the show all the teams resurrected previous routines that they skated, an element otherwise known as a time suck.

Actual competition continues on NBC in the form of speed skating, a six-mile marathon race that features American Chad Hedrick. Also, the women compete in the alpine giant slalom and four men climb into a bobsled and race down an icy track at break-neck speeds. Plus, more curling!
