OMGOMGOMG! This makes me very happy. Thanks Sylvia! and of course now the speculation/rumor mill will begin to churn on the possible skaters and hockey players involved. Cuz we need more topics for the off season!:)

I guess CBC finally noticed that musical theatre faux-auditions don't draw viewers like skaters and hockey players do....

Even though I don't get the broadcasts, I'm glad it's back. Nice high profile gig for a number of skaters :cheer:

Hmmmm, shall we begin speculation on who might be participating?

My vote for the judging panel -- add Shae-Lynn Bourne. Please don't return Jeremy.

This is a great time for them to try the show again with the upcoming Olympic hype and Canada being so strong in figure skating in general right now. Nice to see they didn't give up on it entirely.

Hey, Paul Kariya's retired, and he is supposed to have figure skated. :D

I'll bet CBC is kicking itself for not running it this year- it would have done very well during the hockey strike!

No kidding - they could have run it Saturday nights in the HNIC slot and I bet it would have done great.
