World Figure Skating Championships (Saturday, March 28, 8/7c, NBC)

It's a bit of a drag that the only broadcast coverage we'll see this year is two measly hours on NBC, condensing five days of competition into 120 minutes. But at least we'll have that time to gaze upon the lithe, sparkly athletes from around the world. From the U.S., Ashley Wagner, Gracie Gold, and Polina Edmunds—Olympians all—are trying to end a nine-year medal drought. Standing in their way are dynamite Russkies Elizaveta Tuktamysheva and Yelena Radionova. It's like The Americans On Ice.
