ABC has announced a new reality show.  Just in time for winter, a new ice skating reality show is headed your way.  The show will be a spin-off of Dancing With The Stars and is called, Skating With The Stars.

ABC describes the show as “pairing a celebrity with a world class ice skater who will be critiqued by a panel of expert judges and will receive a set of scores based on artistry and technique and by viewers at home, with one couple being eliminated each week. 

Viewers and fans of figure skating will recall a skating reality series titled, Skating With Celebrities which aired on Fox back in 2006.  The show was more popular off of the rink, as professional skater Lloyd Eisler and his partner Kristy Swanson reportedly began a relationship while he was still married.  Lloyd left his wife for Kristy, and the two have a son together.  Lloyd’s ex-wife filed charges against Kristy for assault, although the charges were later dropped.

Skating With The Stars will differ from Skating with Celebrities in that viewers will be a part of the voting.  Only judges’ votes counted in Fox’s Skating With Celebrities.

The new reality series will debut on November 22 and air for six weeks.  The cast of the show will be revealed on November 2 during Dancing With The Stars Results Show.  There are no rumors or leads as to who might appear on the cast.  However, the celebrities that sign up for the show can expect a very intense training schedule for the very difficult sport.

Who would you like to see on the cast?  Maybe former gold medal winner Tara Lipinski or tabloid queen Tonya Harding?
