The Finale of 'Be Good Johnny Weir' will be shown at 9:00pm Eastern, Sunday, June 27th on the Sundance Channel. Note the time change (this program was originally scheduled for 10pm).

After two years of assorted triumphs and occasional setbacks, the series reaches its finale at the 2010 Olympics. While the presence of his rival Evan Lysacek looms large in Vancouver, Johnny never fails to attract attention, even when holding a press conference moments before the long-awaited hockey face-off between Canada and Russia.

Several clips and promos for the finale episode can be found here:

Is Johnny on the D list or something? I've heard of him but I haven't heard of the other two people.

You mean the two other people on the MTV show? Well, if being on this particular show is a measure of the type of list one is on, then Evan Lysacek is also on the D List, since he was on this show a week ago. (ha-ha!!!!) :lol::lol::lol:

I hope there is a season TWO!
I love the behind the scenes stuff sometimes even more than the actual skating. :D

Thanks for posting. :) Finally some decent clothes and less make-up to enhance Johnny's natural beauty. :saint: The old photos are awkward but funny! :rofl:

It is up now. I watched the final BGJW show yesterday on Demand.
This episode was one of my favorites.

I watched it yesterday in Comcast On-Demand. Fabulous episode - my fave! However, as carefully as I listened for a 'big announcement' about his future, I seem to have missed it. His Weirness??? Towards the end, Johnny (or a family member) mentions something about a tour but I thought that these were just plans. Nothing definitive is mentioned during the episode.

I loved the part near the end where Johnny is back in his rural Pennsylvania house, sitting on the porch in a rocking chair, with mom and aunt. I felt as if they were somehow part of my extended family. I will miss them if Johnny retires from eligible skating!!!

The finale ep was rumored/advertised as providing an answer to what his future competitive plans were.

You're not the only fan left :confused: about it.

Thanks for posting. Well, one thing's for certain: He will NOT enroll in the Fashion Institute of Technology. :lol:

There was the smallest glimmer of a hint about a tour and, for some odd reason, I picked-up on Dorothy Hamill being a tour member...did you get that too? I was VERY touched and impressed by Dorothy's support of Johnny throughout.
