    Thanks Tina! Odd that Brian's show isn't New Year's Day this year, with Country on Ice getting that timeslot instead. Looking forward to hearing the casts!

    I notice Kristi is again "hosting" her own show -- does anyone know if she'll be skating, too? I hope so!

    ETA: Thanks, Teenes, for the info.

    Thanks for the info.

    Might have to check out Fashion on Ice since I am only 45 minutes from Atlantic City

    I was given two possible TV dates for the Skating & Gymnastics show (and I got the info yesterday), which is why I put it as TBD. They seem to still be hammering down some details.

    Sorry for the delayed response, lost track of this thread for a while.

    The Disson site is now showing the airdate of the Skating and Gymnastics show as Jan. 6, 2008 from 4-6PM EST on NBC.

    Cast lists for Kristi's show, Kurt's show, the Skate for the Heart show, and the Skating and Gymnastics show have all been posted on the Disson site.
    http://www.dissonskating.com (Click on "Our Events")

    Kristi is listed as both a skater and a host for her show. Kurt, on the other hand, is only listed as a host for Kristi's show, not a skater. Wish he'd skate...

    Went to the website and there are only nine events listed (there were originally 10 on the TV schedule)...looks like they might have canceled one of them. Also, seems like the bulk of them will be airing around Christmas and New Years.

    Although he is not yet included on the event pages, Evan Lysacek will skate in Kurt Browning's show as well as Fashion on Ice.

    Remember Teenes, he hosted Kristi's second Skates of Gold show and was listed as host only, but skated a number at the end of the show...so who knows?

    Actually, Evan's already listed on the event page for Gotta Skate.

    Red Dog - one of the events is in question and is not yet confirmed so it's not on their site or mine. They seem to be airing 2 in November, 3 right around Christmas, one on New Year's Day, and then once a week for the rest of January.

    purplecat - yeah I remember, and while I liked Moon River, it wasn't a particularly long program. It was nice to see him do it, though, and skate in the finale. Hopefully he'll do at least that much for Kristi's show this time around.

    Yup, it seems that the decision was made not to do the 10th show this year. Instead, they're re-airing Halloween on Ice from last year in that Oct. 27 slot. But it's not just a straight out re-airing of last year's broadcast - they're expanding the show from 1.5 hours (which only aired on Style anyway since IIRC, the NBC broadcast was chopped up due to NASCAR running over) to 2 hours, and including additional footage of the numbers that were cut from last year's broadcast. So we get to see the stuff that never got aired anywhere, along with letting those who don't get the Style Network see the stuff that never made it to the NBC broadcast. It was a good show, so be sure to tune in!

    The rebroadcast dates:
    Oct. 27, 2007, 4-6PM EST, NBC
    Oct. 28, 2007, 10AM-noon, Style Network
    Oct. 31, 2007, 5-7PM, Style Network

    Oh, btw - the cast lists are all up now:
