    Judges

    People magazine has announced 2 of the judges for the show (is that all there are going to be?). They are Dick Button and Johnny Weir

    Now that might be a reason to watch.
    At least there's star power with the judges.

    There would have to be 3 judges at least, don't you think? That being said, I love both Johnny and Dick and, while they're pretty different, I've always gotten the feeling that they like each other.

    So now we're waiting on a host and maybe a third judge.

    I would love to see Scott Hamilton. He is right in the middle, so to speak, between Dick Button and Johnny Weir. He is one of the greatest skaters ever and I hope he is doing well. just my opinion.

    Johnny Weir? I like him, though can only take him in small doses at times. Though watching him and Dick together should be pretty entertaining, in case we don't have a trainwreck on the ice (not to mention hearing him and Bethenney hash it out). Johnny's been wanting to do DWTS, so I wonder if this connection will get him on in the spring. I wouldn't be surprised if the 3rd judge is female. Seems to be the norm on these talent shows-2 guys, 1 girl. Unless they do a 4 judge format.

    Scott's doing great and still performing. He's married with a kid now.

    I can see Dick Button in the Len Goodman role and Johnny Weir in the Bruno role. It they really wanted an upbeat sexy personality as a female judge they could get Shae-Lynn Bourne.

    I like Shae-Lynn. She's on Battle of the Blades up in Canada at the moment.

    I really don't like Johnny Weir. He might be enough to stop me watching this.

    I've seen Johnny Weir commenting on Universal Sports channel. He tends to be a little hypercritical and "all knowing." Just my opinion.

    Re: Judges

    I read somewhere they have the 3rd judge in place.
    Her background is as a choreographer.
    I didn't recognize her name, but others may.

    I expect Johnny Weir to be colorful in his critiques. He tends to be that way. I'm sure this show won't be an exception for him.

    I wish they'd announce the host. It would be great if they had someone like good and recognizable in that slot.
