“Battle Of The Network Stars” Returns To ABC

Author: Rachael Hunter

Say what you will about Hollywood, but they believe in recycling. The latest idea to come back is “Battle of the Network Stars.” The show has been off the air for 30 years, but ABC is bringing it back this month.

One hundred stars will be split into themed teams to compete against each other in a set of athletic challenges like tug of war, archery, kayak relay, and obstacle course, and the dunk tank. This time around, network stars will come from all parts of the TV universe, including cable and first-run syndication.
