Skating with the Stars


Skating with the Stars (Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Skating with the Stars was an American reality TV show. The show featured celebrities paired with professionals from the world of figure skating. The show was similar to the British show, Dancing on Ice, although not strictly based on the same show. The show had a schedule similar to the first season of Dancing with the Stars with performance shows on Monday nights. On week 2, the pair with the lowest combined judges points and viewer votes were eliminated at the end of the show. All six episodes of the show were broadcast. The host is Vernon Kay and doing color commentary is retired Ice Dancer Tanith Belbin. The judges were Johnny Weir, Dick Button and Laurie Ann Gibson.

The show was broadcast on ABC in the United States. Season one concluded on December 21, 2010. It was announced that the show would not return for a second season on January 10, 2011.

Skating with the Stars was considered a flop by most ratings' pundits, noting that the ratings showed a steady decline from week 1 through week 6.

  • Week 1: Rebecca & Fred's routine earned them the highest scores of the week, a 45/60. Vince and Jennifer were at the bottom of the leader-board with a 28/60.
  • Week 2: Brandon & Keauna earned the first "9" of the season, from Laurie-Ann. They also took the top spot with a total of 49/60. Sean & Denis and Vince & Jennifer both tied at the bottom with 30/60. Sean earned the season's lowest score, with a 12 for technique. The scores from both week one and two were combined, with Rebecca at the top (89/120) and Vince at the bottom (58/120). Vince & Jennifer and Sean & Denis were the bottom two, and Sean & Denis were the first to be eliminated.
  • Week 3: Jonny & Brooke reached first place, with 51/60. Brandon was hospitalized with breathing problems, so the judges based their scores on the last taped rehearsal, which led to low scores (unfortunately). The host announced that Brandon and Keauna will perform that routine again on a future performance; but after the cancellation of the competition, they haven't, nor will ever, performed that routine. Bethenny & Ethan and Vince & Jennifer were tied at the bottom of the leader-board, and were also in the bottom two. Vince & Jennifer were eliminated.
  • Week 4 : Jonny & Brooke took the top of the leader board once more with 54/60. Rebecca & Fred were second place on the leader board again with 53/60, only one point away from Jonny & Brooke. Bethenny & Ethan took the bottom of the leaderboard, despite having their highest scores of the season (they eventually garnered a 21 & 22). Brandon & Keauna were unfortunately forced to withdraw due to Brandon's stomach virus becoming too heinous.
  • Week 5 : Rebecca & Fred regained the top of the leader board with 9 points from the judges after the group skate, and received the first 10s of the series with a total of 57/60. Bethenny & Ethan were in the bottom two, despite earning their highest scores of the season. Jonny & Brooke were shockingly eliminated (third place), leaving host Vernon Kay, as well as the judges and audience, in complete shock. In the Finale, all the eliminated stars returned to skate their favorite routine, except Brandon, who was still recovering from his illness. Bethenny & Ethan chose their Week 1 routine as their favorite skate, and earned her highest score of a 51/60, as well as her first 10. Rebecca & Fred chose their Week 3 routine as their favorite, and earned the first perfect score of 60/60 for it. In the end, Rebecca & Fred won the trophy with Bethenny & Ethan in the Runner Up position.
