I like Scott A LOT! I love how he sets up each element and describes why each jump failed. He needs to stick around. I like his dramatic flair. He is a good antidote to Sandra who is dryer than my Granny's pot roast.

If you welcome constructive criticism as a learning experience, then kudos to you. But you seem to think that attention means success. Maybe to some but not to many others.
Long-time skating fans appreciate good analysis. Most of the time, I couldn't understand both you. Please enunciate. Talking about Denis' costume after his very good performance is lame. It's fluff. This is a poor man's version of TSL, if there can be such a thing.
I always find it amazing that unfunny people are the ones who think they're funny. They're merely imitating people they think are funny, a.k.a. imitating the David Leases of the world. Humor requires talent and an eye for observation.

Again, it was really a pleasure to watch the skating and not be interrupted and to have the gaps filled with interesting information, chatter, shout outs, social media - I think it really connected the audience watching from home. It was high spirited and did not detract from the skaters. Wishing you all the luck!!!
