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

We are sending out updates for this show on Twitter and Facebook and there is some feedback there. I am encouraging them to come here and post.

Who thinks that Rebecca and Jonny Moseley have the best shot of this short 6 episode show...

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.
