NBC Revisits Nancy Kerrigan-Tonya Harding Scandal in "Fascinating Character Study"

On Feb. 23, 1994, all eyes were on Lillehammer.

Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding were set to face off in the ladies' figure skating Olympic short skate, just six weeks after Kerrigan was clubbed in the knee at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in an attack orchestrated by Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly. The tape-delayed broadcast drew more than 70 million viewers and a 48.5 household rating — still the seventh highest-rated TV program in history.

The most memorable Winter Olympic moments of all time

Twenty years to the day on Sunday, the two will be back on an Olympic broadcast in NBC's one-hour documentary Nancy & Tonya (7/6c) to discuss the soap opera-like scandal that riveted America — and in Kerrigan's case, for the first time. "Everyone's talked about this except Nancy. Tonya can't stop talking about it! But Nancy wanted to do this. She was ready," Mary Carillo, who produced and narrates the documentary, tells "I think 10 [years] might still be too close, but 20 is a long time. Looking back is ...

"The Freak Book"

When I heard that this episode would feature a meeting of John McEnroe and Larry David, I was almost giddy with excitement. This was the highlight of the show, but unfortunately, the rest of the story just fell flat. Maybe I'm just scarred because that ride from the cemetery to the Staples Center gave me Vietnam-style flashbacks to a horrible Friedman family car ride, because of the screaming and the threats, but after a stellar four shows, many of the scenes this week just hit awkward notes.Larry's usually good for a decent party disruption, but bringing a "freak book" as a present and insisting on reading it with Jeff as Ted Danson continues opening gifts didn't strike me as the kind of hyperreal situation that Curb usually goes for. Instead, it felt like a setup, and this show has always been better than that. Even the should-have-been hilarious Susie scene didn't really go right. I can understand not wanting to be buried next to Larry David (who would?), but her excuse, "Even yo... read more
