New Gladiators Announced

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Renewals,

Evan Dollard, American GladiatorsIn an action-packed two-hour finale, the two champions were crowned Sunday night. I expected more tough events and plenty of competition, but much of the broadcast was soaked with longer contender interviews, replays of favorite moments from the show and lengthy segments on the four competitors at home.

Twenty minutes were gone in the broadcast before finally gave me what I wanted - an event. The gladiators were in top form, making it difficult for any of the contenders to score points. Lightning-quick Evan Dollard did wow the audience with a spectacularly quick climb up The Wall, for the third time in the show’s history. “Soccer mom” Monica Carlson scored big in Assault, sending Gladiator Helga flying from the platform to smack a pool of water. Quickly, it all started to come down to the Eliminator - the obstacle course that’s broken so many competitors throughout the season.

American Gladiators: The Finals

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Renewals,

The American GladiatorsFor many athletic competitors, bragging rights alone is reason enough to pit themselves against the toughest of the tough: the built, buff, brawny . But in this new incarnation of the show, those who have the guts (and chops) to face the Gladiators stand to win much more than a simple competitor’s claim. They will also walk away with a cool $100,000 and the right to join the Gladiators next year. But first, the four final competitors have to beat each other to gain the glory.

Confusingly, has scheduled the finals not on Monday (the show’s usual night), but Sunday at 7 pm EST. The two semifinal rounds put competitors through more challenges than ever before, hinting the finals will test them at every single event the show offers.

Flavor of Love

(You can view the whole Revamped TV Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (2/11)
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm):  “Sarah meets a stranger () who shares a similar past.”  They were once both white rappers?
  • Dance War (ABC, 8pm):  “The touring company of ‘High School Musical’ performs.”  The contestants, now left with inferiority complexes, are unable to go on.
  • Flavor of Love (VH1, 9pm):  Third season premiere.  Is it a coincidence that a Flav-ex has since show up on ?
  • Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  “The escape attempt is successful for some, if not all, of the escapees.”  Apparently you can miss weeks of this show and not miss a thing.
