    Two Competing TV Ice Skates

    Check me if I'm wrong. I believe next Sunday at 4pm EST, there will be the US Nationals Exhibitions show on ABC and on ESPN, there will be the 4CC.

    Now that's a stroke of genius on the part of ABC to have both skates on at the same time. Rationale, anyone?

    I have not seen 4CC so that will be my choice because I don't have two TVs.

    I did see the Nats Exhibitions and you will totally change your opinion of Mao winning the next Olys. It's Caroline skating an impeccable performance.

    Pick your choice. ABC or ESPN.

    I thought I read the USFS schedule and it said that 4CC's would be in the evening...after the exhibitions? They might have changed their schedule...?

    I can watch 4CC on CBC and then Exhibitions on ABC. Although I don't know if I want to watch 4CC, because my favourites Eman and Fumie really bombed and I have no desire to see Carmen ever again.

    This is what I'm talking about. Note the first two events on the TV schedule...they must have changed it.

    4CCs is now on that night from 8-11:30pm ET.

    According to my computer TV Guide, in the Ventura area, Exhibitions are from
    1 pm to 3 pm on ABC and Four Continents are from 5 pm to 8:30 pm on ESPN

    I was hoping to be corrected. Now I can watc both and just look at Caroline Zhang again in awe.

    Did they change the USFS scheduling which showed them both at the same time?

    My TV Guide says that 4 CC's will be on in the evening from 8pm til 11pm EST.
    I'll get it at 7pm which conflicts with the premiere of the Amazing Race All Stars. Luckily I have 2 TV's & 2 vcr's.

    the ladies usually don't come on until the end of the broadcast so I can catch both (plus I can record in High-Quality mode to DVD)

    Think there doing that to compete with the Daytona 500 for those who don't want to watch Nascar.
    I'll be doing a lot of channel flipping
