Animated clay figures Johnny Gomez and Nick Diamond host this show, which features a series of no holds barred, to-the-death wrestling matches between animated celebrities. Past matches include Marilyn Manson vs. Charles Manson, The Three Tenors vs. the Three Stooges, Howard Stern vs. Kathy Lee Gifford, and Mary-Kate vs. Ashley. The referee for each match is the unflappable Judge Mills Lane. Written by
Most of the episodes were just about the fighters and their matches, however one short-lived story arc revolved around the mustachioed announcer Nick Diamond. He was injured when the announcer's tower collapsed (after Roger Ebert was flung into it during a match) and he was hospitalized. In the episodes that followed, he was shown in the hospital, and one of the matches featured was a "dream match" of his with Elvis fighting Jerry Garcia. The "Nick Diamond getting injured" character arc was one of, if not the only, character arc on the show. See more »
In the fight between Billy Corgan, Dave Grohl, and Courtney Love, a giant dome is closed over the ring and Mills Lane steps outside just before it closes. Shortly thereafter, he is seen inside the ring to stay "Let's get it on." See more »

Rockstars, Movie Stars, Baseball Stars, Basketball Stars, Rap Arists, Wrestlers, and Boxers. They have it all. Celebrity Deathmatch is a show where you can switch off your mind for a half hour and watch popular people duke it out. Just like Ray Charles when he went one on one with Jamie Foxx, Chris Farley vs. Horatio Sanz, Adam Sandler vs. Ben Stiller, Stone Cold Steve Austin actually was on the show for a while and during the time he was on he fought his real wrestling rival Vince McMahon. Everybody has been on this show once or twice. If you look back at it Charlie Sheen was on there twice he fought Woody Harrelson, and then before that fought some guy but I don't remember. This show is one of my favorite shows of all time. Heck they even had Beavis vs. Butt-Head on here before. This show has ran from 1998 to now. One of my favorite CDM matches had to be the new seasons Ben Stiller vs. Adam Sandler, they are two of my favorites and it really went well. Another favorite of mine was the Charles Manson vs. Marilyn Manson. That was a good one. I still think Charles should have kicked Marilyn's butt.
