  1. This show is so much fun that I couldn't stop watching it. It's "Dancing with The Stars" with the possibility of dangerous leg-breaking falls. What could be bad?

    Combine the legions of figure skating fans with those who were swept off their feet by "Dancing With the Stars," and all signs point to a breakout hit.
  3. There is something satisfying about watching difficult things performed well, especially when the point is to make it look easy, and especially when the performer is a person who might reasonably be expected to fail.
  4. The result is ridiculous; but it's far more amusing than Hollywood Squares, which is where other formerly famous go to die.

    Tonight's "Skating" debut glides onto the air in a weird sort of middle zone, not quite cheesy enough to skewer, yet too much a cheese-product to take seriously.
  6. It's a rip-off (and not a particularly well-executed one) of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

    What makes a cloney-baloney reality show such as the new ''Skating With Celebrities" bearable? For me, it's the constant awareness of how ''Saturday Night Live" might milk its silliness.
