Writers’ Strike bears fruit: American Gladiators returns!

In a pro­mo after Bion­ic Woman this week, NBC announced the return of Amer­i­can Glad­i­a­tors, pre­mier­ing in Jan­u­ary. Awe­some! This was one of the first shows I watched when I came to this coun­try for col­lege, and it was God-awful. I loved it. I think of it as a pre­cur­sor to the mod­ern wrestling TV phe­nom­e­non, like WWE lite. I can’t wait to see how they update it, if they even both­er.
