NBC to air ice follies spec

NBC will try to cash in on CBS’ Winter Olympics coverage — and capitalize on the one primetime hour when the Eye web isn’t emanating from Lillehammer — with a special, “Shattered Glory: The Tonya Harding & Nancy Kerrigan Story,” at 7 p.m. opposite “60 Minutes” Sunday.

The quickly assembled program, produced by Chicago-based Intersport, will trace the histories of both athletes as well as the events surrounding the attack on Kerrigan and subsequent arrest of several Harding associates.

Intersport had been preparing a documentary when the attack occurred and provided news outlets with the footage of the injured skater crying “Why me?”

CBS already scored big ratings with a Harding interview on “Eye to Eye With Connie Chung” last week, and skated off with huge numbers for its first night of Olympic competition, averaging a 28.7 rating, 41 share from 8-11 p.m. Sunday. That rating is higher than any recorded during the Albertville Games two years ago.

“60 Minutes” is the only regular CBS primetime program airing during the next two weeks, with the balance of the schedule devoted to the Olympics.
