America Doesn't Want to Skate With the Stars

America would love to Dance with the Stars, but skate with the stars? Not so much!

ABC debuted Skating With the Stars right after DWTS on Monday night and the show was so bad, 18 million people tuned out. Ouch!

Almost 24 million viewers watched part I of the season finale of DWTS but by the time Skating came on, only 6 million were still watching.

And those 6 million probably stay tuned to see how bad the show was. But one network's loss is another network's gain. Thanks to Skating being such a flop, Mike & Molly attracted 12.99 million viewers and Hawaii Five-0 got 12.09 million.

Pro skater Johnny Weir, who is one of the judges this season on SWTS, had high hopes for the show telling Hollyscoop at the AMA's, "It's going to amazing because its like Dancing with the Stars but you add the death factor of ice." Ya, not so much. Sorry Johnny.

Did you watch Skating with the Stars? What did you think? Does it have potential or does ABC need to can it?
