I know you will all be watching Monday Night Raw on the heels of last week’s “Not terrible” show, especially since The Rock will be appearing tonight to say witty things that people repeat in unison. I’ll probably be watching, too, since post-NFL season Monday nights are boring as hell. However, there’s a very good chance that I’m going to be watching ESPN Classic during the commercials, as the WWL’s throwback channel will be airing an episode of Battle of the Network Stars.
The original celebrity competition reality TV, Battle of the Network Stars should still be around today, especially on ABC. Just thinking about Manny from Modern Family being shot into the sky as a human cannonball and all of the things that could possibly go wrong just makes me smile. It’s so much better than J-Woww belly-flopping into a pool.
Please bring back Battle of the Network Stars, ABC. Or at least let TLC have the rights so they can load their show casts up with anthrax.
