New Version of ‘Skating with Celebrities’

ABC is going from the dance floor to the ice rink.

The first episode of “Skating With the Stars” will premiere right after the winner of “Dancing With the Stars” is announced.

“Skating With the Stars” sounds a lot like the old show, “Skating with Celebrities,” which aired on Fox in early 2006. In both competitions, celebrities are paired with professional ice skaters. Each celeb is critiqued by judges and receives scores based on artistry and technique. Unlike the old Fox show, those scores are combined with votes from viewers at home on the new ABC show. One couple is eliminated each week.

 “Skating With the Stars” debuts on November 22. There will be six performance episodes with the winner announced on December 21. (AP)
