    Thanks for the pics and video guys! Well, it's official, Meryl and Charlie are both on DWTS (which I personally love unlike some here!). Though I'd much rather see Tessa and Scott dancing, I'm excited to watch. Is there a Canadian version?

    if there is, I hope they don't go anywhere near it.

    Carmen was the best program they did this quad and Zoueva didn't have a hand with it. Until it was later in the season to alter the last step sequence and dance spin which didn't even impact the results. I don't think anyone will go to her any time soon because her reputation was built thru Igor. I think we will soon witness the fall of Zoueva.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Marina ends up with a Russian team. She needs an established team to take over to continue any success. Wonder if B&S will stay with Zhulin? Or I&K with Morozov? I see a Russian team as her best chance to get on that podium again. She can drag another American team onto the podium with them.
    Tessa and Scott: Thank you

    Her reputation is as bad in Russia (and that dates back to mid eighties) as in the USA now. I doubt anyone will go to her anytime soon from russia.
    But I wouldn't be surprised if people GO to Igor instead. Just my opinion of course.

    Bingo. I think if B/S make a change, it would be to Igor first. Everyone knows Zoueva is not a technician. I can see Zoueva taking a lot of American teams.

    I don't know why her reputation is bad in the US? She got them the gold and seems to work closely with USFS.

    Yup I agree.
    She will get some teams from the USA. I think Canadian teams will avoid her due to her partisan treatment of VM.

    The strange thing is all of their situation was suspected and almost foretold on this board. Gives me goosebumps in a bad way.
    As Scott said they found their situation reversed 2010 vs 2014.

    Uhh, I doubt it...

    I do think her 'golden era' of coaching is over, however. V/M and D/W retiring doesn't leave her much to work with. She doesn't have a lot of depth in her teams.

    There is no Canadian equivalent to Dancing With the Stars (which I'm okay with, really). We used to have our own version of So, You Think You Can Dance. I don't watch any of those reality shows but I watched the season where Eman competed. He ended up a very respectable 4th--he was fantastic!

    Tessa would be a shoo-in for Battle of the Blades but I'm not sure there will be a new season.

    Given how their first foray into reality tv went..... I think I'd like them to stick to doing shows and working with some new choreographers and putting together some really kickass new programs that don't have to be limited by some of the more dumb ISU roles

    I totally and 100% agree with this post. Sums up what I feel completely. Bring on the NEW! and the voids too!
    Crazy about sports!

    Dancing with the Sh-ts as laineygossip refers to it. How is that show even still on? There is some stupid tv these days.

    Anyway, it would be interesting to see how VM would've fared with a technical coach (doesn't really matter who) and Jennifer Swan doing their choreography exclusively. Carmen is probably one of the most brilliantly choreographed pieces I've ever seen. And even though it was polarizing, at least it elicited some sort of emotion.

    And we fans have been called crazy and all sorts of names for this in the last two years. I think this is just a tip of the iceberg. Some people will show their true colors eventually and all cover-up will be revealed one day. Nothing can hide forever, trust me.

    Some of you need to take this DWTS discussion to a more relevant thread...

    New interview:

    http://globalnews.ca/video/1186312/t...ng-controversy

    Also more videos in the sidebar where they also give their opinions on Kate Middleton's makeover and Tessa is appropriately scandalized and Scott is appropriately amused. Also they also did another interview today where they were asked about Rob Ford...I predict their reactions were exactly the same.

    I watched the first half of the Morning Show this morning before I had to head off to work. As you will know if you click on the link above, V&M appeared on the entire episode. Dara Howell (gold medalist in women's ski slopestyle), on the other hand, appeared only for her interview segment (which I haven't seen--V&M are supposed to be asking Dara questions). So, something to note for those thinking that V&M would be ignored by the Canadian media because they did not receive the gold.

    ETA: I recorded it and will eventually burn it on a dvd (as I do with all skating-related shows) but I have no idea how to transfer it to Youtube and the like.

    I hope someone puts the whole show online. It would be interesting to see them in that setting.

    ETA: Found this, and I was able to watch from the US: http://globalnews.ca/video/1186495/t...ing-show-mar-4 It even let me download. It's 22 minutes? So it's a 30 minute program? (US morning shows are like 2 hours long)

    Yep, they were on the whole show. Full video: http://globalnews.ca/video/1186495/t...ing-show-mar-4

    Tessa seemed a little nervous. Scott was great though, he'd be a fantastic commentator one day. Maybe even one day soon if someone asks them to commentate for Worlds. Is CBC airing it this year?

    It's 22 minutes? So it's a 30 minute program? (US morning shows are like 2 hours long)
    It's 2 hours in Toronto and then an extra half hour nation wide, I think. They were only on for the half hour bit.
