'Nancy & Tonya' NBC Documentary Recap: Tonya Harding Maintains Her Innocence, Nancy Kerrigan Tells Her Side

23 February 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

NBC aired Nancy & Tonya on Sunday, a documentary featuring interviews of ice skating stars Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding as they revisit Kerrigan’s attack 20-years later.

Nancy Kerrigan Attacked

In 1994, a man hired by Harding’s ex-husband, Jeff Gilloly, attacked Kerrigan off the ice during the World championships, hitting her knee with a metal pipe. Kerrigan recovered from her injury with rigorous rehab and was able to compete in the 1994 Winter Olympics, winning silver.

The story soon took on a life of its own, with many speculating that Harding was behind the attack, though she claimed she had no part in it. Harding and Kerrigan competed side-by-side during the 1994 Olympics, but their relationship was strained and Harding failed to medal in women’s figure skating. Later she pled guilty to hindering prosecution and was forced to pay a fine of $160,000 and undergo three years’ probation. In addition, Harding was also eliminated from the U. »

NBC Revisits Nancy Kerrigan-Tonya Harding Scandal in "Fascinating Character Study"

21 February 2014 8:59 AM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

On Feb. 23, 1994, all eyes were on Lillehammer.

Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding were set to face off in the ladies' figure skating Olympic short skate, just six weeks after Kerrigan was clubbed in the knee at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in an attack orchestrated by Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly. The tape-delayed broadcast drew more than 70 million viewers and a 48.5 household rating — still the seventh highest-rated TV program in history.

The most memorable Winter Olympic moments of all time

Twenty years to the day on Sunday, the two will be back on an Olympic broadcast in NBC's one-hour documentary Nancy & Tonya (7/6c) to discuss the soap opera-like scandal that riveted America — and in Kerrigan's case, for the first time. "Everyone's talked about this except Nancy. Tonya can't stop talking about it! But Nancy wanted to do this. She was ready," Mary Carillo, who produced and narrates the documentary, tells TVGuide. »

NBC’s ‘Nancy & Tonya’ Docu To Air Sunday Ahead Of Sochi Closing Ceremony

19 February 2014 11:33 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

For days NBC Sports had been saying its Nancy & Tonya documentary would probably air on Sunday before the Sochi Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony, which also would sync it up with the 20th anniversary of the 1994 Winter Olympics Figure Skating Competition. But that slot depended on any weather delays or unforeseen problems during NBC’s coverage. This morning, the network nailed down a timeslot: this Sunday at 7 Pm Et/6 Pm Ct. Mary Carillo will examine the events that held Americans spellbound after defending U.S. figure skating champion Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed in the knee after a practice during the 1994 U.S. championships and rival Tonya Harding’s husband and bodyguard were arrested for planning the attack. The docu, which combines present-day and archival interviews, practice and competition footage, and news coverage leading up to and during the events, includes a sit-down with Kerrigan and a one-on-one with Harding. It culminates »

Nancy Kerrigan & Tonya Harding: Documentaries Detail Vicious Attack

18 February 2014 1:08 PM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Nancy was brutally attacked before the 1994 Winter Olympics, by Tonya’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and two of his accomplices. Now NBC and Espn are debuting rivaling documentaries that will force viewers to decide whose side they are on!

Tonya Harding has always been adamant that she knew nothing about her husband, Jeff Gillooly‘s plans to brutally assault Nancy Kerrigan during a practice session before the 1994 Winter Games. Now that it’s the 20th anniversary of what was called the “whack heard round the world,” two very different documentaries will revisit the terror that took place between these two skating stars. 

Nancy Kerrigan & Tonya Harding — New Documentaries

Espn has a new documentary called 30 for 30: The Price of Gold, in which Tonya continues to claim she had no clue that her husband, at the time, was plotting an attack against Nancy. The documentary focuses on Tonya’s life and portrays »

Nancy Kerrigan Attacked

After winning Bronze at the 1992 Winter Olympics, figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was on track to win her second consecutive national championship before going into her next Olympics.

Meredith Vieira to Become First Woman to Host Olympics Primetime Show Solo

14 February 2014 6:01 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bob Costas will once again be forced to sit out NBC’s Friday night coverage of the Winter Olympics and will be replaced by Meredith Vieira, the first woman to ever host the primetime coverage solo.

Costas has been out sick all week with an eye infection. Matt Lauer has filled in as host Tuesday through Thursday.

Executives at NBC envision Vieira staying in the primetime seat for two nights, said Jim Bell, executive producer of the Olympics broadcast for NBCUniversal. “This has lingered for a little bit,” he said during a conference call with reporters on Friday. “We will just have to see, as we’ve done pretty calmly and rationally, and take it one day at a time. We’ll wake up tomorrow and see how Bob is doing and make a decision then.” Bell said NBC executives had not yet contemplated removing Costas from hosting duties.

Matt Lauer Filling In as Olympics Host as Bob Costas Battles Eye Infection

11 February 2014 10:05 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The eye's had it. Matt Lauer may not be going for gold, but the longtime Today show host will be pinch-hitting for buddy Bob Costas Tuesday as the NBC Winter Olympics host takes a night off to battle an icky-looking eye infection, which has forced him to wear Harry Potter-style glasses on air. "Let's hope it's only tonight," Costas, 61, told Lauer live on Today Tuesday. "I'm walking around, I might as well be playing 'Marco Polo.' I have no idea where I am."Costas is something of an Olympic institution. No one else has anchored a prime-time summer or »

2014 Olympics: Matt Lauer to fill in for infection-fighting Bob Costas -- Video

11 February 2014 7:14 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

The pinkos have finally won.

By that, of course, I’m referring to Bob Costas’s red-rimmed eyes — inflamed with an infection that’s plagued NBC’s lead Olympic commentator since the network’s coverage of the Sochi Winter Games began last week. (The infection started in Costas’s left eye and has subsequently spread to his right.)

Though Costas has soldiered on despite his ailment — even gamely downing a glass of vodka with Mary Carillo night — the Peacock announced Tuesday that the sportscaster is finally stepping aside, at least for one night. Costas will be taking the day off »

Winter Olympics 2014 Opening Ceremonies: Maria Sharapova, Matt Lauer and Bob Costas head to Sochi

7 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Imagine palm trees, sea breezes and a temperate climate, and you've got a handle on, not your next Caribbean vacation, but the scene of the Xxii Winter Olympics, Sochi, Russia.

Yes, this Eastern European resort city of 340,000 on the northern shores of the Black Sea is not your average Winter Games host, boasting a climate closer to Virginia than Lake Placid, Lillehammer or Innsbruck. But that shouldn't detract from the action on the slopes, ice or halfpipe, given indoor venues, high-elevation ski trails and advanced snowmaking technology.

Coverage gets going Thursday, Feb. 6, with the first of 17 days of action in alpine skiing, snowboarding, figure and speed skating, bobsled, biathlon, and more. NBC will team with broadcast partners NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC and USA Network to provide 539 hours of televised events in addition to the more than 1,000 hours of live streaming action on

NBC In Talks With Lindsey Vonn For Winter Olympics Coverage

23 January 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

“I don’t think she is going to be able to travel,” said NBC Olympics executive producer Jim Bell today of skier Lindsey Vonn joining the network’s coverage of the Winter Olympics next month in Sochi, Russia. However, Vonn could show up on NBC in some form or another, Bell said. “We have been in discussions,” he said of Vonn, who had to drop out of the Games due to a knee injury. When pressed whether she would be on-air, Bell stoically replied “maybe.” Bell also noted during a call with reporters today that he wasn’t worried that the absence of the high-profile Vonn — a gold medalist at the 2010 Vancouver Games and now a pop culture staple — would lead to a lack of viewer interest in U.S. participants. “There are plenty of established stars to go round, like Shaun White,” he said. “And there are always the unknowns. »
