Oh no!!!!!! I thought I was going to get to watch it live too :( They had it live last year didn't they?
The Olys Ladies LP was around midnight in New York. There was no twinkle toes lady expected to win and Lepisto who got on the podium was not even shown!
Jammers - I agree with you. I do not trust NBC on order of skate and time of skate. Has anyone seen their schedule yet? I believe if one of the US ladies is in the last six to skate, she will skate last for NBC, and if time is limited they will eliminate one skater.
The boys have a shot at a medal, but I do not think NBC will tinker with the order of skate. Being in eastern US. it could be preempted for whatever reason. Keep tuned.
The ladies free skate begins at 6:45pm, NBC will go live at 9pm. That gives them plenty of options and I'm sure it will depend on the short program results and if there were any surprises in the earlier groups of ladies. They can opt to re-air some of the short programs, show skaters from an earlier group, or have fluff pieces until the final group warms up. Unfortunately, you won't know ahead of time exactly when they'll break into live skating.Originally Posted by Joesitz
Will NBC allow 2 hours for the Ladies? I believe, although I do not follow Law and Order, it is their regular scheduled show. Will some skating be cut?
The Early rounds of Mens on Sunday I presume will be on IN. NBC is scheduled to show Late rounds, but when? Anyone know?
most likely, only the final group of 6 lsdies will be shown, starting around 10:00. Prior to that, you'll probably see a recap of the short programs, fluff pieces and if there was an upset with a previous group.Originally Posted by Joesitz
NBC's coverage of the men starts at 4:00 on Sunday, with most likely the same format (only final group of 6 shown live).
There is a Russian channel, a Turkish channel and a UK channel that you can pick up on line and watch all the skaters at Worlds. Last year, there was a group of us who had a running conversation on facebook from the first lady until the final skater at the Olympics which was FUN.
When you can start checking IN for start orders:
Novice Dance PD
Novice Men SP
Novice Pairs SP
Junior Men SP
Novice Ladies SP
Junior Ladies SP
Junior Dance SD
Junior Pairs SP
Championship Ladies SP
Championship Men SP
Championship Pairs SP
Championship Dance SD
Tammi - It's Saturday night and I can not find the Order of Skate anywhere on IN,USFS, or Sports chanel. I suppose IN will have it on Sunday.
