    While those numbers aren't good, they aren't as tragic as I would've imagined. With some decent promotion, I think FS could certainly grow a lot more, too bad it seems like everyone involved in USFS seems incompetent or doesn't care...

    Surprisingly, viewerships in total for Nationals have consistently been increasing and memberships for USFSA have been growing for the first time since like 2006. Hopefully this trend can keep going.

    At a time when it seems like everything is pointing to a decline in US figure skating, this is certainly good news to hear.

    • Men's Free Skate - 1.78 million
    Up 112% from last year. The men's skates have been consistently increasing over the years. Might go up to 2 million in 2020.
    So strange that men's skating gets less viewership than ladies', while being vastly superior in all respects.

    I wonder, what's the rational of that missing one third of the ladies' spectators, (over 1 mil!), that chose not to watch men? "They don't wear short skirts, and don't have boobs, so we're not interested"? "They don't look like us, or like our figure-skating daughters, so who cares?"

    I'm genuinely curious.
