    US TV Alert - Sunday November 18 on NBC

    TEB Ladies and Mens Coverage EST 2-4pm NBC. Then Family Show (as listed on Heather's page) from 4-6 pm EST NBC Check your local listings. I have no idea whose family show---Kristi's maybe? I wish she would still skate-I don't know why she doesn't. I imagine we will see the same folks with kids since the 90's? Anyone know about this show? HMMM Krist has kids, Kulik and Katia maybe with Liza? I'd love to see this kid, she's about 11 and should be quite good with Kulik as her first coach. Eldridge has a baby. Scott of course has quit. Maybe Browning, Jumping Joe still skates. Of course Weiss is likely-it would be great to see Sale Pelletier with son or the Russians like Yagudin. I imagine there will be some regulars people expect-maybe Joannie? Sasha? or Kimmie?

    Well any info please post. I hope it is not the vapid holiday stuff. Kerrigan still skates- gee this is 2012 and the 90's folks have a lock on these shows. It'd be nice to see offspring who actually have talent and compete like Liza Kulik. I don't expect to see Johnny, tho family in America is not traditional anymore. I wonder if this is Disson? I wish for pro comps-I hate the same songs-I'm not into holidays anymore. Thank heavens for the GP coverage. I have not seen the men of TEB yet, so...that parts good!

    If I remember correctly: The taping (last weekend, I think?) of the Disson family show was moved to Phoenix at the last minute -- because of superstorm Sandy's damaging effects on Atlantic City.

    Todd Eldredge and his family are among the performers in this Disson show. On Friday morning, the Eldredges skated live at Rockefeller Center on the Today show to promote the Disson broadcast.

    Well, we were a party of about 10 people all psyched for months to attend the Musselman's Family Skating Tribute in Atlantic City, NJ. We totally understand the show not taking place @ Boardwalk Hall in AC, but were hoping that the show would be relocated somewhere in the Mid Atlantic region @ a later date. It was not to be, and we are all heartbroken over that, however we're still looking forward to watching the skaters & their kids skate in this show. My only wish is that Disson and NBC would present a balanced show. I have nothing against Jewel the singer, but the company is Disson Skating and of course we want to see the skaters doing their programs completely.

    The segment on Todd & family shown on NBC's Today Show on Friday morning was charming. I don''t have the Youtube video link to it, but it's available (a good friend of mine who's another Todd fan put it up ).

    Anyway, lots of skating today - TEB (I'm doing my best to stay "unspoiled"). Enjoy (although I wish the competition coverage was still on ABC/ESPN).

    Well, she is 41 and a full time mom. Training gets harder, not to mention motivation. We fans have to let her go some day.

    She skated in the Kaleidoscope on Ice show two years ago, for breast cancer research. She did a cute program to "When I'm sixty-four" (was she trying to tell us something? )

    From what I read a while ago, I think Yamaguchi was at least a host/emcee/whatever for at least one of the two shows that Disson taped last weekend. Off the top of my head, I don't know whether she performed as well.

    BTW, aside from her responsibilities as a mom, she recently launched a clothing line (sportswear, I believe). And she is a professional writer (books for kids, plus a lot of blogging, I think?). A woman of many talents.

    Yes, thanks, lulu...tried to record it but something happened....and I always buy Smucker's products and call them up and thank them for their sponsorship, too, and let them know I buy their products. You wanna know what really makes you able to see a skater able to do a tripple axel? Bucks. Cubic bucks. And some of those bucks comes from Sponsorships. And those sponsors want to know they are having an effect with their bucks....let them know.

    Mike really embraced the CoP when he was skatiing. He understands it enough to make his commentary spot on.

    His skating programs wouldve been better if he didnt just use his wife all the time as choreographer.

    I think Gannon talks too much/his comments are irrelevant to the action happening on the ice. Save the tidbits and factoids for AFTER the skate is finished (or before the skate begins), please...

    I'm really disappointed in Tara this season. When she was commentating on Universal Sports a few seasons back, I thought she was quite good -- not sure what the deal is now.
    Agreed. Either she should get her act together or maybe they should find someone else...

    I still love Terry Gannon, but he talks A LOT more than he used to and asks Tara A LOT of chit-chatty questions during the programs, so it's not entirely Tara's fault. I like Michael Weiss as a commentator a lot more than Peter Carruthers. I hope Weiss does the rest of the Men's GP events for NBC.

    That's what I noticed that Terry was asking Tara questions and what is she supposed to do shhhh him?? I like Tara & Michael's voices. I also like it when the commentator says what jump the skater just did. Although I know some of the jumps sometimes unless I'm concentrating I miss which jump they did like the flip or lutz.

    Anyone have thoughts on the commentators for Universal Sports (namely Tanith for Dance or whoever it is for pairs?)
