loved battle of the network stars
14 June 2004 | by (san pedro, ca) – See all my reviews

i have very fond memories of watching battle of the network stars.

i was saddened to see that series not return. it was something that everyone enjoyed watching favorite TV stars of the era. a modern day version would be mtv basketball jam. back then this was REALITY SHOW at it's best. seeing stars play simon says doing funny things was hysterical. back then having two male stars face each other in that game as if to kiss was risqué.

unlike today where there is no limit unfortunately. another favorite was seeing our stars do relay races, tug-of-war, etc...in that era networks took care of their stars by putting them out in front. this series boosted all networks and starts. today the reality shows don't do that.
