    It's interesting that the most recent Olympic medalist and the person who appeared on the Today Show to promote this broadcast, is relegated to the "also rans"...

    Too bad she's a Canadian, I guess :)

    In my listings this show is preceded by another airing of Holiday Festival on Ice on NBC HD KING Seattle.

    Anyone watching this? Seems like a great cast and I always love to see Michelle Kwan even if she isn't skating. :)

    I'm watching but I'm sure like all Disson shows, we will see more of the singers than skaters. :(

    I wish we could do figure skating shows without random musical guests sometimes.

    I'm only watching until the pats game starts. :lol:

    Loved the edit they did of Caydee not landing the throw 3Z cleanly, LOL :rofl:

    Not a fan of Jeremy's outfit but I do like Caydee's dress. I wonder if these are new SP outfits for them.

    Oh, I really liked that last Johnny performance.

    I also liked Straight No Chaser.

    I tho't this was one of the best Disson shows I've watched in the past few years. Loved Johnny's last number. It was breathtaking to watch. Loved Sasha's Caberet routine & Ryan's Willie Wonka's. Belbin & Agosto were great...actually I liked all the skaters. I did not enjoy watching the singers & all the shots of their open mouths.;)

    Those were the highlights for me, too. And I agree that this was one of the best Disson shows in recent years. And, yeah, I don't like seeing the singers during the program, but I think they showed less of them this time around.

    I agree. I loved the cast, all who you named..plus, I thought Joannie was wonderful.

    Johnny's the man..

    Aw, I like Ruben. :)

    Dang, Ryan Bradley is adorable. And I don't even like Willy Wonka!

    Nice sharp performance from Sasha of "Mein Herr" -- best I've ever seen her do that one, I think. I liked her second number too, but that song always makes me think of the California Raisins. Of course, Sasha's way younger than me. . . . :shuffle: She's probably never even heard of them!!

    In the ending number, I saw Johnny put his hand to his head when the other guys had their hands up. He just can't stand not to do something different, can he? :lol:

    I agree the music was better than usual.

    Lately it hasn't bothered me that much to miss skating, shows or comps. (I watched part of the Heart one as much for the band as the skating.) But would've liked to see some of this - will look for vids. :saint:

    Ryan Bradley is just a born show skater! He is so good. It's like I can't wait to see him at nationals.

    Abbott was good. Cohen did great with Cabaret.

    Weir also impressed. Both him and Cohen did some of their best skates of those show skates.

    I thought this was one of the better Disson shows this season. I didn't mind the musical guests, and the skaters did skate to quite a bit of recorded music. I liked the skating cast very much.

    Came in a little late though. Can anyone tell me the name of the song that was playing during Tanith and Ben's last routine? It wasn't a live performance... I came in at the end. Thanks. :D

    I think it was 'If It Kills Me' by Jason Mraz.

    unfortunately yes. And the wiping sweat of the brow move. And the knees in and out while on toes move, etc. I want to do the rolleyes, but won't because I don't feel that mean towards Rachael - just her :rolleyes: choreographers/coaches who keep doing that to her.

    I agree with the others about how this show was definitely a better-than-average Disson show.

    Check it out for yourselves. ;)

    I really liked the group number with Tanith, Joannie, Sasha & Johnny and Ruben singing.

    Weir has once again proved that he doesn't need the costumes and makeup to wow the audience. He's a fantastic skater.

    Really disliked Sasha's performance, sorry. The skating was fine, but the girl just doesn't have the "slutty factor" for a routine like "Mein Herr." The ponytail just made me laugh - she looked like a teenager doing a bad artistic number.

    Bradley is a born showman. So entertaining and talented - glad to see he rehabbed well from the injuries of late last season. Hope he comes back to competitive skating again.

    Loved the musical guests for the first time ever! Straight No Chaser were awesome!

    This show will air on the Hallmark Channel tomorrow (2/8) from 6-8pm EST (other time zones, check your listings). Def worth watching again...or for the 1st time!
