    Did anybody watch tonight? I was out so I set up the VCR only to find out that the stupid football game ran about half an hour into the program slot. I managed to see the first four pairs. Luckily it's on again tomorrow night!

    huh? I was watching the football game tonight and they advertised it as coming on tomorrow night, not right afterward. So it must have been a repeat.

    No, it was the second episode. I have come to the conclusion that they must have aired it in Canada first. I have no idea why. It was in my TV listings for Sunday at 10, and Monday at 8. I will be tuning in tomorrow to see the last two pairs since I missed them.

    Yes, it is airing Sunday nights on Global in Canada and Monday nights on Fox in US.

    I watched it, but won't spoil it for anyone in the States who won't see it until tomorrow.

    Very interesting. I was not aware of this.

    I thought Fox came up with the show (they didn't try to "bid" to get it). Does this mean they "lent" it to the Global Canada network...or they partly own it...or what?

    A reminder, that the show airs tonight (Monday). Unfortunately for me, it's on the same time as Surface, so i will tape the skating show and watch Surface.

    This show is no fair at all. John Zimmerman's partner is so much better than everyone else, there is no contest. If the judges were fair this team would be so far in front no one else would have a chance.

    I agree, John and Jillian have way too much of an advantage. It just isn't fair. She's annoying, too. Almost as annoying as John Nicks. He's the biggest asswipe I've seen in a long time.

    Ratings are in for SWC's Monday night premiere:
    http://tv.zap2it.com/tveditorial/tve_main/1,1002,272|99691|1|,00.html

    Skating with Celebrities got a 7.0/10, narrowly losing the 8PM hour to CBS' King of Queens and How I Met Your Mother. Overall, combined with 24, FOX got 2nd place for the night after CBS, and 2nd for adults 18-49.

    As expected, there was a definite drop-off from its premiere after American Idol, but this, at least as far as I can see, was still quite solid. If you look at the ratings breakdown for all the shows Monday night, not a single show (except CSI: Miami at 10PM) got ratings near the level of what SWC and Lost got Wednesday night, or anywhere near the level of American Idol.

    So far, so good... (I think).

    It's obvious that that is because the producers told him to be one before the show began. That's the role he's playing. They sat all three of them down and said "alright Dorothy, you're the consilatory Paula Abdul Character, Nicks, you'll be the mean Simon Cowell character, and whatever that other guy's name is will be the token gay dude ala Ryan Seacrest.

    Ever since that show "The Weakest Link" made a big splash by having a mean spirited British woman insult people every week, there's been a trend in Hollywood to cast people with English accents as villains on game shows...Although I seriously question whether or not this can be classified as a "game show," seeing as there are no civilians involved. Only athletes and ex-celebrities. Do the winners get anything?

    I stopped watching How I met Your Mother when it became clear that they were never going to tell us how he met their mother. (No actualy, I stopped watching as soon as I saw that Doogie Houser was on it.)

    Anyway...the dynamic duo of Kurt Browning followed by Jack Bower -- it's a hit!

    Jenny and Todd got the ax. He fell so he was an open target. I was hoping Nancy and Dave would be eliminated. She did all the work, Dave just skated around.

    John and Jillian certainly have a huge advantage. Not fair.

    This show is making John Nicks more famous (infamous?) than ever. By the time that he appears in Torino with Sasha, the average American TV viewer will know him well. The sad thing is that I believe that this is just a Simon-Cowellish fake 'persona' for this show. In all of the years that I have been to US Nationals & other competitions, I've only heard of & known of John Nicks as being a very nice person. I feel that the show's producers have given him a script and ask him to growl for the camera. HOLLYWOOD PHONEY-LAND ONCE AGAIN.

    And just what is supposed to be funny or entertaining about someone being mean-spirited and ugly with a British accent?
