Skating with Celebrities: Part 6 of 7

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.

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?)

scott hamilton summer sandersNow that Deborah Gibson and Kurt Browning are gone, the playing field seems pretty evenly matched. It looks like the remaining teams had a lot of falls during the last few practices.

Did host Scott Hamilton get taller since last week? Summer Sanders doesn't seem to tower over him as much tonight. Or, maybe I'm just used to seeing them together now so the height difference doesn't bother me as much. Well, the "witty" banter still sucks.

Let's get it on...

Skating with Celebrities: Part 3

Before we begin, I have a couple of notes about the contestants on this show:

Isn't it sad how the announcer refers to Dave Coulier as being from Full House? I guess it could be worse. He could say, "Dave Coulier, allegedly the subject of Alanis Morrisette's very bitter You Oughta Know." I actually think he may be more famous for that.

Anyway... on with the show.

Skating with Celebrities so far

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 30th 2006 2:32PM
Now that I can finally watch more than one channel at a time, I decided to start watching Skating with Celebrities. Why, you ask? Sick fascination, I guess. It's like Dancing with the Stars with an added element of danger. And facial mutilation.

Here's what you need to know about the show, if you're joining me in adding this show to your viewing schedule:
