The name Yuri on Ice makes me think of a real-life ice skating adaptation of a popular yuri anime/manga

I'm pretty sure they named it that intentionally to try to capture some male audience.

Don't know her.
But it feels like she's promoting it because she likes the homoerotic scenes more than because it's related to her profession.

Also, as someone already pointed out before, in Japanese writing it's spelled as a name, not as the genre for yuri...so no, they're not trying to trick people into watching it. It's not their fault you're a pervert who thinks that way.

I may be a pervert, but at least I'm an open pervert.

Also you got me at homoerotic scenes.

That's actually really cool. I didn't know Evgenia Medvedeva liked Yuri on ice.

Johnny Weir (three-time US champion, two-time Olympian, and World bronze medalist figure skater) is a fan as well. Here's an interview with him about it:
