In the never-ending attempt to plunder the past to make money for the future, NBC is bringing back schlock-fest American Gladiators as a mid-season replacement, but they promise that the show will be bigger, faster, and better than before. We're not sure America is ready for a show that Xtreme!
The best thing would be to bring back all of the Gladiators past, and make them fight each other for a paycheck, which we presume none of them have had since about 1994. Then, the final episode would involve the two remaining Gladiators mano-a-mano to see which one of them will have to lose their mullet. It's broadbased American television!
