CBC’s BATTLE OF THE BLADES got a new start on September 29th with a two-hour live performance battle between the new pairs. Every Sunday night at 8:00pm on CBC the pairs will perform live again to see who will be the 2013 champions! Hosting honours go to Ron MacLean who will preside over the battles with judges; four time Canadian and Olympic champion Kurt Browning, season one champion and Olympic and World champion pairs figure skater Jamie Salé, and season two BATTLE OF THE BLADES cast member and Hockey Night in Canada panelist P.J. Stock.
Who would have thought that combining two of Canada’s favourite sports, ice hockey and figure skating, would result in the highest ratings for original Canadian programming? Eight World and Olympic Champion figure skaters are paired up with eight NHL hockey greats in the ultimate skating competition for charity.
