    Skating with the Stars

    On Dancing with the Stars tonight ABC ran the first brief ad for the Skating with the Stars competition that is scheduled to air on November 22.

    Also, they announced that Kristi Yamaguchi and Anton Apolo Ohno would guest star on Dancing with the Stars next week, as team captains for some kind of reunion of past winners feature.

    I bet they are setting Kristi up as the host of the new show.

    I wonder who the contestants and judges will be.

    I think you are likely correct, as for judges I am going to vote for Plushy being one of them.

    Math, I read an article where they said they would announce who's going to be on the show on November 2nd. Also here is some info, not much, from the ABC site.

    Isn't this a take off of a show a few years ago and John Nicks was one of the judges??

    Yeah, Lloyd Eisler and some movie star floozie won. It did not attract a very big audience. I think this time around they will be relying on the Dancing with the Stars tie-in get more viewers.

    I think they may have asked for some help from KBrowning IIRC. He mentioned in an interview earlier this year that Battle of the Blades was being noticed by US networks.

    Well, last night they announced the stars that will be participating. I never heard of any of them. I guess that's the problem with a show of this kind -- there are no famous people who can skate. (I wish Condoleeza Rice would have gone for it. )

    They didn't anounce which skaters will be involved, or the judges.

    How could any woman NOT root for Denis???

    I also love Brooke and Jennifer, though.

    guess I will have to watch this after all.

    I'm glad to see Keauna is part of it - it would be a shame to waste her skating talent. Hope she can get her mojo back!

    Ok, I'm going to cheer for Bethenny Frankl... and a little for Denis. I wish there were more well known skaters.

    I wish there were more well known stars. Dancing didn't have big name dancers the first season, except if you followed dance. That's not what brings in the viewership (now some have huge fan bases because of the show), it's the has been stars and wannabe stars that shouldn't be that bring in the viewers.

    I'm excited to see Denis skate and Jennifer and Brooke... it'll be nice to see those faces on TV again...
