Those tv ratings are astounding!
I was seriously worried about low TV viewership ratings of FS in Japan this season until the Japanese nationals. I thought people were not so interested in FS anymore. Then at the Nationals the ratings were just WOW! WOW! WOW! We have Miki, Kanako, Akiko, Daisuke, Nobu and Taka, each one of them is so exciting to watch and they have their own devoted fans, but the Nationals made us realize once again how special Mao is for Japanese people and how much she is loved in Japan.

What a delightful article! Mao's fashion line sounds like a lot of fun. Who wouldn't love to have a Maomao kimono?
We can't let the USFSA see those TV ratings. They'd all turn green with envy and shrivel up. Can you imagine 40% of Americans tuning in to skating? Yipes! Imagine all the pro skating we could get on the air if skating were that popular in the U.S. They'd be so desperate for programming, they'd be begging us at GS to give them our plans for jump layouts, and those of us who have dreams of choosing music for our favorite skaters would become salaried employees of the sports industry.
I am not sure if we even get those ratings in the US for the Super Bowl.
Thanks for sharing the article.
