Tonight's TV Hot List: Friday, Feb. 19, 2010
Winter Olympics8/7c NBC "We have to do something new every year," says U.S. ice dancer Tanith Belbin. "Ice dancing has been changing." The biggest change for Belbin and partner Ben Agosto may have been friends and rivals Meryl Davis and Charlie White defeating them for the first time at the U.S. Nationals, giving the U.S. two teams capable of medaling. Tonight is the compulsory dance. Also on tap is the men's Super G, which should bring out all the top names in Alpine skiing. "The Austrians and the Swiss are the powerhouses," says U.S. veteran Marco Sullivan, "but you can gauge yourself off [Norway's] Aksel Lund Svindal." For those who have enjoyed any neighborhood sledding this winter, tonight's men's and women's skeleton finals may be appealing, but going headfirst at 80 mph may cause second thoughts. And veteran Olympic viewers may remember Harry Potter-lookalike Simon Ammann (Switzerland) from 2002 and 2006. He's back to take on Austrian sensation Gregor Schlierenzauer on ski jumping's large hill.Read on for previews of Smallville, Ricky Gervais Show, Real Time with Bill Maher and American Loggers.
