Weir, a former US Olympic figure skater, now does broadcasting work for NBC and was part of the pre-race coverage at the Derby along with Tara Lipinski. But Weir certainly outdid Tara — and […]

Johnny Weir gets the Saturday Night Live treatment

Jim Parsons hosted Saturday Night Live and broke out his Johnny Weir impression for the cold open. However, in the general scheme of SNL being so hit and miss these days, this was a giant miss.

Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski are moving to Access Hollywood

The Sochi Olympics will not leave many lasting memories as far as the U.S. team goes. Shaun White didn't medal, both USA hockey teams were ruthlessly dispatched by Canada and didn't win gold. The Dutch monopolized the speed skating and America's curling teams were dismal. The U.S. figure skating women also failed to medal but mark that down to treacherous figure skating judging....
