  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.

    I think it is a very entertaining show. It is fun to watch the celebrities learn what must be a very difficult sport and to sometimes do very well. So what if the celebrities aren't "A-list" celebs. I never liked rating celebs that way anyway, I like who I like whether they were the hot item of the past or the current thing. Expand

    I enjoyed this series but can see why it wasn't renewed. Was a bit of a dangerous/difficult sport to try to teach "C" level celebrities. Not nearly as good as Dancing with the Stars. Collapse

    Somewhat fun to watch, but the judging is so screwy -- it doesn't even match up with their own comments -- that it kills the enjoyment. Sure it's entertainment not real competition but like American Idol you'd like to believe the best contestant will win. Expand

    Fox once again ripping off another show, but of course in their version people can get hurt. Fox should just stick with American Idol and get out of the reality business. Expand

    What the heck was Fox thinking? Having celebrities like Todd Bridges and Dave Coulier skate with professional figure skaters like Tai Babilonia and Nancy Kerrigan. I never actually watched the show, but I've seen the commercials and this looked a total waste of time. Fox, why don't you do us and the rest of the USA a favor and stop making reality figure skating shows with celebrities and stick with American Idol and Nanny 911? Expand
