What’s This TV Show About?
An athletic competition on the ABC television network, Battle of the Network Stars pits teams of celebrities against each other in various athletic games.

Although it premiered with mediocre numbers, it is still too early to use the ratings to predict if ABC will cancel or renew Battle of the Network Stars for season two. Flying blind, I expect the Alphabet Network will renew this celebrity competition for a second season. It is the kind of light, non-serialized summer fare that audiences can return to, without having to catch up on episodes they might have missed during vacations and the like. Battle of the Network Stars also provides ABC with an opportunity to promote stars of its current TV series and hence the series, themselves. Still, if the ratings take a dive, I reserve the right to change my mind. In the meantime, I’m ordering taking out. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens though, so subscribe for free updates on any Battle of the Network Stars cancellation or renewal news.
