There is supposed to be some dance on Universal Sports tomorrow. I expect they swooped in and asserted their rights. However, I expect to see Meryl & Charlie's dance put up on demand later in the week on IN.
But I am still annoyed as heck. I would have slept, if I knew they were going to do this.
Guess I saved the angst by not watching Paul/Islam implode and the headlining World champs being disrespected.

Can IN get through ONE event without a serious technical glitch? It's embarassing. Seriously, I'm majorly PO'd. Time for an irritated email to customer support considering I just shelled out the subscription fee this afternoon. Grrr.
Of what I saw of D/W this program is a pleasant turn of events. They clearly worked on their latin timing over the summer. Seemed a more natural fit for them compared to the other teams.
Hubbell and Donahue are showing definite early promise. I'm encouraged by them.
Too bad about Paul/Islam's falls and Fabian's silly errors. Still, I love that he and Natalie are using Mas Que Nada (one of my favorite samba pieces). Nice to see that some of these latin programs seem better choreographed than others we've seen. The Russians have a long way to go if they have not made changes to the programs we saw at the test skates.
I'm really glad that people seem to like the structure of P/I's program. As much as I would have loved to see them skate well, it's really nationals that these two have to be on top of their game for. At least, if the program is good, they should be able to impress there. Really like her dress, too. Not at all what I was expecting.
CARA, if you have a twitter acct, you might want to use that as well. Just sent a tweet complaining. Then checked for others. Angry tweets are flying fast and furious. They can ignore that kind of public, collective anger. I expect a response eventually.
Lynn Rutherford is tweeting that Fabian has a bad case of bronchitis, pretty sick in press conf. Still planning to skate FD.
