Show Summary

If you thought Dancing with the Stars was entertaining, just take a look at Skating with Celebrities, FOX's new reality competition which pits six professional figure skaters with six celebrities, whom have little to no skill in the sport. Serving as host is Olympic gold medalist and world champion figure skater Scott Hamilton.

The celebrity/professional pairings are: 1) Comedian Dave Coulier ("Full House") and two-time Olympic medal winner Nancy Kerrigan. 2) Olympic decathlon gold medalist Bruce Jenner and world champion pairs figure skater Tai Babilonia. 3) Actor Todd Bridges ("Different Strokes") with three-time U.S. national pairs figure skating champion Jenni Meno. 4) Actress Kristy Swanson ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and two-time Olympic pairs figure skating medalist and world champion Lloyd Eisler. 5) Singer/songwriter Deborah Gibson with four-time world figure skating champion Kurt Browning. 6) television personality/reporter Jillian Barberie ("Good Day LA") with three-time U.S. pairs champion and world figure skating champion John Zimmerman.

The pairs must face the challenge of learning new routines that test their artistic and athletic abilities. The pressure is on as the teams compete in front of a panel of judges including Olympic gold medalist and world figure skating champion Dorothy Hamill. Lending their choreography expertise are five-time U.S. National ice dance champion and Emmy Award-winning choreographer Michael Seibert, U.S. and world figure skating champion and director/choreographer Randy Gardner and three-time U.S. ice dance champion Renee Roca.moreless

    • Skating with Celebrities is an ok Show.

      6.1
      Skating with Celebrities, Skating with Celebrities is an ok show. But if it comes back for a second season it will need some fine tuning. It dosn't seem like a special show to watch. Although i do recomend this show to people who like to watch dancing with the stars
    • It's lame, but it shows how challenging figure skating can be.

      5.0
      I'm a HUGE fan of figure skating, I practically watch every event Involving this beautiful sport, however, I didn't really like this show. For a regular fan like me with a semi-expert eye it looks so amateurish and the only entertainment I got was from the goofs and child play not from the skating.

      Nonetheless, I think it was beneficial in the sense that it opened people's eyes to the difficulty and beauty of this sport and got it a bit of appreciation by the public.

      Wanna see some real skating? …… watch the world championships, keep an eye out for Evgeny Plushenko in the men's competition, he's way ahead of his time… truly talented.moreless
    • Not to original.

      8.0
      I like to ice skate so I decided to try this show and it was pretty good. I feel its been done before not the skating part but the judges and the competiton (only better). I like to ice skate so I did like this show. I also like the teams they put together.
    • Skating with celebrities??? Come on now

      3.9
      I admit, I watched a few episodes before I got the idea that this show was rather boring, especially after watcing the olympics. These olympic skaters put their entire heart, soul and life into training, and it bothers me that in a few short weeks these celebrites think they are great...I think that it's a slap in the face to our hard working and dedicated figure skaters.

    • this is the show that killed arrested development!

      1.0
      i hate skating with celebrities and ill tell you why. its because arrested development is now cancelled because the ratings for this were about a million times better than this show. but have you seen arrested development? I think not! i hate everyone who likes this show better than arrested.
