    @KIEMNews Why are you playing paid advertising instead of the NBC Skating and Gymnastics Spectacular that TitanTV promised me?

    Hallelujah, I actually got an e-mail apology from my NBC affiliate! The guy's going to see if it's been rescheduled. Fingers crossed . . .

    Is it cheesy as heck? I seem to remember watching about 3 minutes of it a few years back and cringing because it was so bad.

    this is so awful it's unbelievable (but of course I'm watching it).

    I did like the synchronized parallel bars routine, and Gabby Douglas' balance beam routine was ok. All the skating choreography is cringeworthy :yikes: This is why I usually ignore non-competition shows :scream:

    It was on in my area. On a scale of 1 to 10 I gave it a 3.

    Wow, what did they do that was better than previous shows? I was fearing that given the recent Summer Games, there'd be less skating and more "artistic" gymnastics.

    I believe it was pre-empted in our area (other sports coverage :eek:). Why do they have to have these teeny bopper bands as music guests? There have been some quality musical artists in the past. That said, the emphasis should still be on the athletes.

    I got it on my local NBC affiliate, not the one out of Philly. Loved the cast of skaters but hated the show..Too much going on...skaters, gymnasts, bands and a partridge in a pear tree. Very ADHD, my head was spinning..

    Had Adam not been in it, I may have DVR'd it and then deleted it next July without ever seeing it.

    To paraphrase a recent song, "this was f***ing AWFUL.." (instead of "awesome"). I like cheese for real food, but this cheese was STANK.

    I'm surprised that two of Muse's songs were used in the rings and parallel bars routines. Is Muse trying to promote their upcoming tour on this uber cheesy show??? That would be very desperate.

    I only watched it because a few of my fave gymnasts and skaters were on it. They don't have many pro shows they can do anymore (especially the gymnasts). Nastia made the Subway breakfast muffin sound so good though (with the spinach and tomato) that I did go out and buy one the next day. It was tasty. :D
