Reasons why Skating with the Stars is a bad idea
- It's a shameless attempt of spinning off of Dancing with the Stars. (spinning pun intended)
- FOX already did it several years ago as a rip off and no one cared. All I remember is Bruce Jenner was on it and it was bad.
- If you though there were no name stars on Dancing the past couple of years, Skating has a more pathetic assortment.
- If you thought people looked like klutzes the first couple of weeks on Dancing, just wait until these people get on ice.
- Now that I think about it, I think that I saw another take of Skating with the Stars on another network, and it didn't take off either.
- It might have done better at the first of the year leading into the Winter Olympics, but I'm not a marketing genius or anything...
- They are announcing the professional skaters after the stars... admitting that the professionals are a bigger draw than the stars.
