Finally, the Grand Prix Finals.

Hey, NBC, Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski impress us. Steve Schlager doesn’t. And wouldn’t we look nice in front of the fake fireplace with Bob Costas?

Volosozhar & Trankov fall to fame. Savchenko & Szolkowy win it. Pang & Tong hang on. Davis & White get a “convincing win.” Virtue & Moir make it look effortless. Péchalat & Bourzat knock the Russians off. Ashley Wagner calls ‘em like she sees ‘em. Anna Pogorilaya can’t get a ticket. Elena Radionova performs. Irina Slutskaya gets some air time. Adelina Sotnikova rocks then rolls. Julia Lipnitskaia spins perfectly. Mao Asada brings in some fire power. Yuzuru Hanyu’s short goes big. Patrick Chan skates well, interviews poorly. Nobunari Oda sprites it up. Yan Han gets emotional while Maxim Kovtun gets our hopes up.
