Did anyone watch this? Just wondering how similar it is to DWTS.

omg, what a train wreck. The only reason to watch, in my opinion, is to see what Johnny Weir is wearing each week.

I may enjoy reality tv but not enough to watch this one! Then again, I don't like dancing with the stars either. I guess at least with skating theres no way any of the "stars" have an unfair advantage over others like on dancing where some of the people who compete have had some professional training prior to the show.
