Kromm April 3, 2014 Share April 3, 2014 Ancient show from the 1970s and 80s (1976-1988), where many of the biggest TV stars of the day, split into teams by TV network, participated in silly field games, obstacle courses, etc. Howard Cossell hosted and commentated. As far as I know the show has never been repeated anywhere, so this really IS a show that only the ancient liver-spotted oldies among us will know. The one modern mention some may have seen is that it was mentioned in TV Guide's list of "60 greatest game shows of all time" last year. YouTube DOES have all kinds of clips of the show though (guess people had them saved on old VHS tapes or something). EDIT - correction. Apparently these have been played on ESPN Classic within the last few years, and it was also apparently on TRIO (predecessor to Bravo) at some point. Here's a typical clip, featuring a Kayak race in 1978 with some people you might know even if you aren't old. Including... Okay, are you ready for this? DAVID LETTERMAN. And WILLIAM SHATNER. I am not joking. (also Levar Burton, Gabe Kaplan, Robert Urich and many others) Link to comment
