    U.S. Stars on Ice & 2014 Worlds recap on NBC, Sunday, April 13

    http://www.starsonice.com/news.html?n_id=444
    Meryl Davis and Charlie White returned from the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, with the United Statesí first ice dancing gold medal in history. Now America will get a front row seat as Davis and White, along with their bronze medal winning teammates from the inaugural Olympic figure skating team event, reunite in a special broadcast from the 2014 Stars on Ice post-Olympic tour. The one-hour special will air nationally on NBC, Sunday, April 13th at 3:00 PM, followed by the broadcast of the 2014 World Figure Skating Championships from Saitama, Japan.
    ...
    Recorded during the April 6th Stars on Ice tour performance at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL, the TV special will also serve as a preview for the 2014 Stars on Ice post-Olympic tour that began its 20-city run in Fort Myers, FL on April 4 and culminates in Seattle, WA on May 18.
    Time slot is Sunday from 3:00-6:00 pm Eastern (check your local listing).

    Thanks for the reminder. I wish I could record it but my cable company dropped NBC and thus I can't set my DVR to record it.

    Really??? I thought network channels are always included in the package since they are 'free channels'. What about using rabbit ears to receive reception?

    Someone usually posts a live stream link to watch NBC online. Anyone?

    SOI telecast kicks off with clips from the good ol' glory days of SOI...

    D/W, Gold, Wagner, Abbott, Brown are mentioned by Hamilton (broadcast focus will be on the Olympic team bronze medalists, not surprisingly).

    D/W's Scheherazade is first program.

    ETA:

    At least there was a brief clip of Josh Farris being lifted in the guy's group number... Interviews with the 2014 Olympians are going to take away program time, sigh.

    Brown's Riverdance is next (first section through 3A was the retake).

    This group number is good, but Studz remains my favorite SOI male group number.

    I'm glad the guys' group number was shown at least - Farris deserved some air time for this one!

    BTW, the loud cheer from the audience for Gracie's 2A in Let it Go was for her retake.

    Keeping track of all the programs shown by NBC so far:
    D&W's Scheherazade
    Brown's Riverdance
    Wagner's Young & Beautiful
    Guys' group number to The Walker!
    Navarro/Bommentre's How do you like me now? (glad to see them get the exposure!)
    Abbott's Latch
    Gold's Let it Go
    D/W's Rach. 2
    Finale to Don't Stop Believin'

    We missed group number/N/B/DW2 due to weather report-I guess tornado watch IS more impt....

    So many "bronze medalists"-I think D10 would be surprised to hear Jason Brown took his....

    Hate lyrics so far. Am forced to turn sound off due to...

    Maybe it's gd SOI not in my neck of the woods-would not spend $$$$ to see live...

    Oh wow. The end already. Our coverage sucked thanks to weather. Hope yrs is better!

    So which singles' programs from Worlds will be shown next?

    ETA: Tracy Wilson is the NBC rep. in Saitama.

    Abbott's FS is first to be shown.

    Jason Brown is an Olympic Team Bronze medalist.

    I appreciate that NBC showed us some SOI, but I would've liked to see one of Mirai's numbers.

    I missed the SOI broadcast. I'm sorry I missed Meryl and Charlie and somehow I knew they wouldn't show Mirai's number. Yet another slight.

    I'm so happy it's Weir/Lipinski commenting rather than Hamilton/Bezic for Worlds. I hope they boot Hamilton and Bezic for good but that might just be a dream.

    I'm finding myself wanting to tell Johnny and Tara to shut up.

    Oh well last televised competition of the year, why should it be any different than the others.

    This was a SOI infomercial focused on the Olympians, so I don't think Nagasu was singled out to be "slighted." It sounded like Navarro/Bommentre received an especially enthusiastic response from the crowd in Orlando and they may have been chosen for the broadcast for that reason. At least there are decent quality videos of both of Nagasu's SOI programs on YT.

    Machida's Firebird is next to be shown.

    ETA the 5 men shown by NBC:
    Abbott #14 in FS start order, Machida #19, Hanyu #21, Fernandez #22 & Kozuka #23.

    Ah... would have liked to see Mirai and Josh. Really surprised they didn't show Bradley. I guess in was just the World Team that was there plus N/B

    Yay, Asada's wonderful SP is being shown!

    Tara Lipinski's comment afterwards: "This [performance] changed my life..."

    Polina Edmunds' FS will be next.

    ETA:
    Edmunds was #16 in FS start order; Meite (#17 & 16th in FS) was chacked, not surprisingly.
    #18-24 are Wagner, Kostner, Suzuki, Asada, Lipnitskaia, Pogorilaya (ETA: she was chacked), Gold.

    I know they are TEAM bronze medalists. They should have been announced as such instead of simply "bronze medalists." Yes? It was two completely different events, team and individual, yes? Yes. Sssnnnnnnaaaarrrrkkkk!!

    Again thanks to local weather I'm not seeing much of worlds. I think I give up on skating today.
    Have a nice day!

    There's an entire (snark) thread in GSD devoted to this topic. Link: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...ilver-Medalist

    I'm sorry your weather issues have affected your local NBC broadcast.

    I didn't hear them announce an event at all- they just said Olympics. Unless I missed it and they announced Meryl and Charlie as "individual" gold medalists...
