    Excellent performance by Adam Rippon, clean, and I love the Rippon Lutz, but I still don't think he's better than Jeremy Abbott, whom has it all as well, but also that extra something.

    Btw, I would pick Tonya as the sole commentator. Johnny needs to know that less is more, and his favoritism of Adam is annoying, as well as his irrelevant comments like about Adam's hair. *rollls eyes*

    GREAT JOB, ADAM! BRAVO!

    ok...my heart is still aching for Dornbush. urgh. And, i agree, Johnny and Tonya were gabbing too much at that beginning....but, I think they have settled in. Weir is a way better commentator than I had expected...I mean, he can stop now with the makeup and fashion jokes, but I like his element and skating calls. nice.

    Ok YEAH Rippon!!!!!!!! wow. great for you!

    FABULOUS spins by Scott Dyer! Too bad about the fall, but I love his energy and enthusiasm, YES, and his 3lutz was out of this world.

    Johnny keep the comments at the beginning or end, but please please please keep it quiet during the actual performance, learn from Tonya K. It's like when one is watching an excellent movie and somebody ruins it by talking too much and therefore one misses the movie. Irritating, disrespectul, and rude. Jmho.

    Remember this is not Johnny's first time behind the camera. He did some brief work for UniSport in the past during Torino Worlds. It sounds like IN is giving him a bit more free reign to say what he wants. I actually don't mind some of the cheeky comments. They are a fun so far.

    Great job to Adam.

    Dornbush, I'm so shocked, he usually has such good technique. Such a difficult year he has had. So happy for Adam tho, he is doing so much better now.

    I don't understand why they have commentators on IN. I don't think the type of fans who pay $40 to watch skating need to be told that skaters should "put their falls behind them" or that "spins and footwork are important."

    Alexander Johnson was fabulous, poignant performance.

    But I'm almost in tears and cannot even watch nor type nor do anything b/c I'm so very upset with all this *#*# commentary going on, ruining a brilliant poignant performance, can't enjoy it with all the bs going on in commentating. Johnny is ruining it for me. This is *not* the Johnny Weir Show. Please, I'm honestly begging you. I know you're new to the commentating scene on IN, but it's making me hate you now. Can't believe this is going to go on for the rest of the competition, breaks my heart, breaks my heart.

    Very lyrical skate by Alexander Johnson. I love the way he feels the music, O mio bambino caro (so heart-melting). Jump and spin errors.

    hmmm, sounds like I'm glad I didn't pay for IN. I like commentary, but too much makes me crazy.

    Tried to enjoy Alexander Aiken, especially to this music of "Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones, but Johnny is damn annoying, he ruins it for me. Too bad about the mistakes, but *I* think he sold it pretty good. Nice try.

    Alex Aiken doubled the triple flip and had a fall on triple axel. Squeaked out 3lutz/3toe

    I think Johnny's doing quite well. He's pretty perceptive and respectful, as someone said, but gives detailed explanations of the errors. And IN is well worth it, IMO.

    I love Weir's commentary so far...I think he could back off just a little as he is doing great great great with the replays....but, I like it. Now, if he does that with every element during a spectacular skate, well , then I'll get grumpy...
