I think it was just for those few games that were on CBS. I was so anxious about Paul Wylie that year that I spent the day at my parents so I could see anything I could. They didn't show any of the top skaters (all saved for CBS) but I did learn he was in 3rd after the short. I was out of control with joy and a hazard on the road as I drove to work. Peter Carruthers and Nick ? (who knew absolutely nothing about skating) were in the studio.
