    I fear it as well. What is the matter with commentators who just cannot SHUT UP? Despite whatever they may think, nothing--NOTHING--they have to say is one fraction of a second as valuable as the skate taking place right at that moment. I remember Johnny Weir at the last Olympics, after an uncharacteristic few moments of blessed silence, commenting 'Ha ha, we (Tara & Terry [shudder]) haven't been talking just now--we must like (this person's) skating! Hahahahaha'. Appalling. They are all so busily self-promoting & in love with their own opinions. ~Prove me wrong, Meagan!

    Cathy Reed commentated with Ted last year at the JGPF and she was respectful. Didn't talk until after the performance.

    And having juniors doing quads.
    I wonder how much of the views come from Russia and Japan where (at least in Russia) figure skating is talked about on the main news.

    Just here to pronounce my undying love for Ted Barton once more, and for YouTube access to the JGP!

    I like Meagan and can picture her being a respectful and energetic commentator. It's got to be tough for Ted to find something insightful to say about SO many skaters, so perhaps another perspective will keep things lively and fun for him.

    Well, you called it! I completely agree with you about Ted Barton, and appreciated so much the way he and Meagan Duhamel worked together! They were never intrusive; their comments were honest, very perceptive, supportive of the skaters, and greatly instructive for me as a viewer. It was clear right away how good they were, I was so relieved and thankful.
