Friday night is curling night.

“Curling Night In America,” a weekly Friday night curling telecast, will begin airing Jan. 23 on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra for six weeks through March.

NBC Sports Group and Universal Sports Network will combine for 24 hours of coverage from the inaugural U.S. Curling Grand Prix.

The telecasts will feature eight international teams — four men’s and four women’s — from the U.S., China, Japan and New Zealand that competed in the U.S. Curling Grand Prix in December.

“Curling has one of the most passionate fan bases in all of sports, and has developed a cult following as a result of our Winter Olympics broadcasts,” said Gary Quinn, Vice President, Programming of NBC Sports Group. “Just as Wednesday night has become ‘Rivalry Night’ for our NHL telecasts, and ‘Sunday Night is Football Night,’ we want viewers saying, ‘Friday Night is Curling Night.’”
