You know you're out there. You're the ones who bombarded me with e-mails after Barberie left ''Good Day Live.'' Well, her newest gig is in prime time. How long it lasts will depend on how well she ice-skates. Here's the word from Fox:
SKATING WITH CELEBRITIES will partner six famous personalities with six professional figure skaters to compete for an unprecedented figure skating title on FOX. Hosted by Olympic gold medalist and world champion Scott Hamilton, the competition will feature some of the most recognized and celebrated names in professional figure skating and a mix of celebrities who span a wide spectrum within the entertainment industry.
The celebrity/professional figure skater pairs are:
- Actor/comedian Dave Coulier (“Full House”) with two-time Olympic figure skating medalist Nancy Kerrigan;
- Olympic decathlon gold medalist and television personality Bruce Jenner with world champion pairs figure skater Tai Babilonia;
- Actor Todd Bridges (“Diff’rent Strokes”) with three-time U.S. national pairs figure skating champion and world championship medalist Jenni Meno;
- Actress Kristy Swanson (“Dude, Where’s My Car?”, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) with two-time Olympic pairs figure skating medalist and world champion Lloyd Eisler;
- Singer/songwriter/actress Deborah Gibson with four-time world figure skating champion Kurt Browning;
- Television personality, reporter and weather forecaster Jillian Barberie (“Good Day LA,” “Fox NFL Sunday,” “Good Morning, Miami") with three-time pairs figure skating champion and world championship medalist John Zimmerman.
Over the course of six themed episodes, the celebrities and their professional partners will perform figure skating routines that will challenge the celebs’ athletic and artistic abilities and push them to prepare and perform in ways they’ve never done before. Each episode will test the pairs’ skills as they demonstrate whether they can successfully pull off original and challenging skating sequences – or whether they’ll freeze under pressure.
The show does not yet have a premiere date. I'll post one once it's announced.
