This was an absolutely amazing concept. Imagine getting different TV stars from the various networks and having the network stars team up against the other networks. The competition was funny, exciting, and challenging. The stars were just that, "Television Stars" in their own right.
It was great watching the tug-of-war, relay races, and obstacle course (to name a few of the events). It was a chance to see the stars outside of their characters that they played on TV. It was also great publicity for the stars, shows, and networks alike. It made the stars appear more approachable and normal, yet it also gave you more of an appreciation for their willingness to get "down and dirty".
In an era of one reality show after another, not to mention the endless paparazzi frenzy, "Battle of the Network Stars" was indeed the original "Reality Show". It would be great to bring back this show. Hey, if anyone out there is interested, I will even consider producing it.
