Is Battle of the Network Stars making a comeback? Deadline reports ABC is developing a reboot of the classic TV series.
Originally hosted by Howard Cosell, the competition show featured stars from various NBC, CBS, and ABC series participating in physical challenges. The show began in 1976 and ended in 1988.
According to Deadline, ABC plans to run the new Battle of the Network Stars as a summer event series featuring “TV stars from all eras and genres on the teams, which would compete to raise money for charity.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of the original Battle of the Network Stars? Would you watch the reboot?
Yes!!! I loved that show and I would love love to see it done again!!!!
No no no no, stop ABC. We already know what type of stars would end up on this show, overrated stars that can’t act, sing, dance, cook and etc etc. Reality People aren’t stars, no Bachelor people on this, athletes and Olympians are not stars, look at DWTS for an example no stars just wannabes. Cancel this idea completely.
Can I just say, “PLEASE, STOP MAKING REBOOTS OF CLASSIC TV SHOWS”, it is just so pathetic. Hollywood can’t come up with any original ideas of their own. I hate seeing classic shows you grew up with being remade with different stars of today that ruins it and it is not the same without the original cast that made the show entertaining. Go back to Creative Writing and come up with new ideas of your own.
I loved Battle – as well as Circus of the Stars – and I would watch this with one condition: no reality TV “stars.” I hate reality TV, and that includes bogus competition shows as well.
LOVED that show, and I think it will be fun to see who they get. I will watch for sure!
I loved the “battle of the network stars”, but that’s when TV Shows were relatable! Now, there are TOO MANY REALITY SHOWS, to pick your favorite Actors, that you watched week in and week out!!! I just wouldn’t be the same!!! I don’t think it would be enjoyable!!! Could you see anyone of those “SELF ABSORBED” KARDASHIAN’S donning a plain “Team Tee Shirt & a plain pair of Shorts”, not designer Outfits!!! NEVER!!!!!
