This seems to be the summer of the returning game show, and tonight ABC resurrects another competition series that I always looked forward to as a kid…Battle of the Network Stars. These days celebrities appear on all kinds of reality TV shows, but back in the day, it was a special treat to see a gathering of your favorite network stars battling it out in physical competitions. ABC has recruited 100 celebrities to form themed teams. Each week two of these teams will go head-to-head, competing in various sports. While some of the participants are veterans to the competition, for many this will be their first time.

The series is hosted by ESPN’s Mike Greenberg and Joe Tessitore, while Cassidy Hubbarth and Cari Champion will serve as sideline reporters. And serving as team captains are Super Bowl L winner DeMarcus Ware and MMA fighter/Olympian Ronda Rousey.

For tonight’s premiere, it’s a TV Sitcoms vs TV Kids battle, and it features actors from some of my favorite childhood sitcoms! The TV Sitcoms team includes Bronson Pinchot (Perfect Strangers), Tom Arnold (Roseanne), Dave Coulier (Full House), AJ Michalka (The Goldbergs), & Tracy Gold (Growing Pains). While the TV Kids team features Joey Lawrence (Blossom and Gimme a Break!), Corbin Bleu (High School Musical), Nolan Gould (Modern Family), and BoTNS veterans Lisa Whelchel & Kim Fields (The Facts of Life). Tonight these two teams will compete in golfing, rowing, swimming, playing tennis, doing a relay race, an obstacle course, and more. It should be a fun competition!

See which team takes home the win tonight on ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Gong Show, Big Brother, Zoo, Hollywood Game Night, Hotel Transylvania: The Series, The Mist, and Queen of the South.
