    I know it starts at 8 but nbcolympics have yet to release skate times for everyone. I guess we'll have to wait until 7:30 to get times. Unless I find it on vancouver2010.com

    My dream podium now:

    1. Savchenko/Szolkowy
    2. Shen/Zhao
    3. Kavaguti/Smirnov

    I would also love to see Mukhortova/Trankov have the performance of their life tonight and somehow climb into the top 5 and then hopefully they can win a medal at Worlds.

    I hope we see great skating tonight!

    Preferably clean the ice a few times first.
    I really don't care who you want or don't want on the podium.



    And what do you mean by "Preferably clean the ice a few times first."?

    I agree. I hope that the judging is fair and that a wonderfully clean Aliona and Robin win the gold and that an also clean Shen and Zhao get silver.

    1. Savchenko/Szolkowy
    2. Shen/Zhao
    3. Kavaguti/Smirnov
    4. Pang/Tong
    5. Mukhortova/Trankov

    from Caydee & Jeremy on Facebook -
    Finished our last practice and feeling good. Can't wait to hit the ice again for the long in three hours.

    What NBC could have done was to show the first 3 groups on Unisport and have the last two groups on NBC. They may have thought of that but it would most likely interfere with their commercial plans.

    NBC's only interest is in the Ratings to please their advertisers.

    It is quite a jolt watching one Pairs Team and then switch to a speed skate and then a commerical, and return to Pairs, 45 minutes later. During that period, it was not LIVE. I wonder if the entire Pairs was time delayed.

    All Euros can watch Eurovision, saw the whole thing on last night, through BBC, no interruptions by other sports!

    My dream top 3 would be

    Shen/Zhao
    Kavaguti/Smirnov
    Savchenko/Szolkowy

    because I just don't like S/S but realistically they'll switch with K/S.

    um, duh? not sure what else they're supposed to do. NBC is giving fair amount of time to all sports. considering torino was not the best for their ratings I'm not sure I can fault them for cutting back in their coverage at all. how are they supposed to come out even (much less with a profit) if they ignore their contracts with sponsors and the sports organizers just so a very small demographic of their overall viewership will stop whining that we aren't getting enough coverage?

    and universal sports is not on everyone's package plan, so chacking the US teams on the main station would not be a good idea. you're lucky you get universal sports, a lot of members on this board don't.

    Depends where you are watching. If you are in central or eastern time, then it should have been live, but out here on the west coast everything is 3 hour delay. Which is silly because if they are going to delay it anyway, they might as well edit the program so we get to see all the skating at once, all the skiing at once etc. The way it was made it very difficult to watch and I could not try to watch something else because I was always "checking" to see if the pairs were back yet.

    Denney and Barrett were on a maybe 1 1/2 minute max time delay because of, I suspect, a commercial or two running over time. But the last 7 skaters were live, as were Shen/Zhao. I don't remember if the group of three (B/L, E/L, L/H) were live or not. If they weren't, it would have again been a VERY slight delay.

    there's not enough time for the stuff on the East coast to be done and editted before they hit primetime on the west coast, for one.

    and it doesn't make it feel as "in the moment" that way, either.. I enjoy watching the other sports in between. It's a tiny bit annoying, but it's still fun (Moguls rule)
