There are more ways to look at skating differently with avid fans of figure skating alone. They are still big fans but see it differently. What I was talking about are the fans that have been leaving it as a must see. Those fans made figure skating popular. They are gone, and since money is involved, the ISU is working on that necessity for running the organized sport.
Will giving an extra GP to presumed "stars" increase the box office sales? I think ticket sales were already sold which included "stars" without any additions. Also I doubt a complete GP will be shown on TV other than a local showing. TV revenues are as important as the ISU revenues.
