Trivia

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 »

Movie stars, TV stars, and rock stars make each other see stars...
15 April 2002 | by (Orange County, California) – See all my reviews

Part WWF freak show, part celebrity roast, and 100 percent outrageous satire, "Celebrity Deathmatch" is one of the best ideas for a novelty TV show to come out in years. There's nothing more satisfying than seeing snobbish starlets, overhyped matinee idols, and self-aggrandizing mega-entertainers maim each other and humiliate themselves in front of the entire world (as clay facsimiles, of course).

But despite all the schadenfreude, it's all in good fun. Fictional hosts Johnny Gomez and Nick Diamond provide a hilarious running commentary on the grisly goings-on with nonstop puns, quips, and zingers at the unfortunate celebrities' expense. Real-life referee Mills Lane moderates the bouts and sometimes even plays a crucial role in which celebrity will win. And the celebrities themselves (actually impersonated by voiceover artists) have the most fun of all, coming up with ever more creative ways to annihilate each other while making references galore to their own movies, their opponents' movies, and pop culture in general.

"Celebrity Deathmatch" is even more fun to watch if you have a bunch of friends over and you want to do some Vegas-style gambling. Wagering on the outcome of the fights can be fun, but be forewarned: don't always root for the more popular celebrity (for example, Eddie Murphy over Nick Nolte). The playing field is level in these fights, and just about anything goes - so the victor may surprise you. Bet on your personal favorite instead.
