C. Martin Croker,
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 celebrities were not voiced by their real-life selves, but by veteran voice actors. However, Mills Lane provided his own voice as the referee and later replaced by another voice actor when the series was briefly revived. Mills gave his blessing because of a stroke he suffered. See more »

It's a sick idea, so why is it so damn entertaining?
2 Celebrities (or more). Beat the crap out of each other in the ring. And the celebrity who kills the other wins. That's pretty sick so why is it good?
Probably because it's a show that concentrates on trying to make it funny as well as violent. It's quite a satirical show as it pokes fun at the world of celebrities and the celebrities themselves. (Movie stars act like famous characters they play, sports people usually fight like they play that sport). They also got their own characters. Johnny Gomez and Nick Diamond the commentators who get into situations during the show. Stacy Cornbred the backstage reporter, Mills Lane (though he's real) the referee. So it's a pretty fun show.
I'll never forget the first time I saw this show. It was the sci-fi special. Celine Dion was performing the national anthem and they poke fun at how she sings. Then Keith Flint from Prodigy comes in with a chair and whacks her with it. Then Celine Dion battered Keith till she pulls his head off and swallowed it whole. She turned into an alien and went into Don King's head. And I wanted to see more. And before I knew it, I saw David Duchovny and Gillian Anderon vs. Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, Jim Carrey vs. Mariah Carey, Quentin Tarantino vs. Spike Lee, Backstreet boys vs. Beastie boys, 3 Stooges vs. 3 Tenors and more!
So great show, see it unless you're faint-hearted.
