Battle of the Network Stars


I used to love this show.

I wonder if it would work today…

  1. I did too. Do you remember “Circus Of The Stars”, where they did really lame, cheesy stunts and everyone ooooh’d and aaah’d (even though any 12-year old could have done that stuff). Now, “Circus Of The Stars” in a “Scarred” format (like Tom Cruise’s arm bending the wrong way, or Michael Richards breaking his collar bone on a bicycle stunt), that would be cool. I’d watch that. I’d laugh my ass off.

    Ohmygod, what year is this from? Look at that Epstein’s hair! And is that John Mayer next to Howard Cosell?

  3. I loved when they had that special on. I was seriously just thinking about it the other day. I don’t know how they would bring it back. Celebs seem too full of themselves nowadays. Might break a nail or lose an extension 🙂

    I used to love it too..!

    Dick- I loved Circus of the Stars, too. But, now that I think about it, it was pretty lame.

    Tanya- I don’t know what year it’s from, but John Mayer was probably an embryo.

    Jolene- or pop a boob.

    Jen- I knew you would!

  6. Lynda Carter had a nice rack.

    But seriously, I loved that show too. Hysterical.

    They DO have that show now, it’s called “Dancing with the Stars” or “Celebrity Fit Club”. Just sayin.

  8. Man, I watched that religiously. A friend of mine and I would try to make up lame-ass home versions of the games. Like throwing a ball up and down the steps in a certain amount of time. Woooo!

    Even though I was only 4, I remember Mr. Kotter beating James West in a foot race…it was a huge upset. And I was a big Kotter fan, even though I kind of had a girly crush on James West. But my crush on Barbarino was massive and all consuming.

    Valerie- she totally does

    superwoman- Dancing with the stars… I can see that. But Celebrity Fit Club is a horrible show and shouldn’t even be compared to Battle of the Network Stars.

    Beckeye- I remember doing home versions too… usually at the playground. And I totally thought Barbarino was dreamy. I think there is a recording of me singing about him somewhere… or I may have destroyed it.
