For comparison's sake, let us now consider similarly scored programs from this season and the past:
Men, 160+ points
I chose to focus on scores over 160 as the 170+ score is a relatively newer phenomenon. Daisuke Takahashi was the first skater to receive an LP score over 170 at an ISU event, scoring 175.84 at the 2008 Four Continents Championships. This mark stood as a world record for more than three years, but has since been surpassed several times - most recently by Patrick Chan at the 2012 Rostelecom Cup.
Ladies, 115+ points
Pairs, 132 points or so
Some of these things are most decidedly not like the others. And yes, I'm aware that the IJS is ever changing - but in certain cases the scoring has been so ludicrous, the next phase would be to go to plaid.
