    Who would have decided the selections? They sound so odd.

    Do they have to pay the skaters (or federations) to air the programs? I have no idea what that situation is, but it might explain a lot...

    I doubt that the skaters mentioned are going to be the only ones shown -- for '97 worlds, for example, they only mention Tara, but it is going to be for an hour, so I assume they will show more (MK's Taj, maybe? or Elvis's win?) I know that skating events have too many commercials and too much fluff but only one skater in an hour -- I don't think they'd be that bad.

    Yes, I would assume that since NBC owns the rights to the most recent few Olys, ESPN (owned by ABC) would not be able to show them.

    I get ESPN classic with my Basic Time Warner Cable. I am thrilled!

    I sure hope that they will include at least Kulik´s short programme from 1996 Worlds as it was the winner. His sp and freeskate from that season were the reason why he was so prominently featured in US Dance magazine early 1997.
