TV Shows - American Gladiators

American Gladiators (1989-1996) was an American competition television program that matched a cast of amateur athletes against each other, as well as against the show's own "gladiators", in contests of strength and agility. The first competition sponsored by Dan Carr and John C. Ferraro was held at Erie Tech High School in Erie, PA and sold to Samuel Goldwyn Productions MGM where the format was expanded into "American Gladiators."[2] The show was taped at Universal Studios Hollywood until 1991, then moved to Gladiator Arena for the rest of its initial run. The National Indoor Arena, home to the UK version, hosted the International Gladiators competitions. The series, a co-production of Trans World International and Four Point Entertainment, was distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Television. An effort to launch a live American Gladiators show on the Las Vegas Strip became mired in a securities fraud prosecution.[3] However, the series was restarted in 2008. This version of the show currently airs in the USA on ESPN Classic, and several episodes have been made available for download on Apple's iTunes Service.

1 Who'd have thought that the "Star Trek" episode 'Bread and Circuses' would have turned out to be about the future rather than a skewed version of the 'contemporary' Roman Empire? LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 24, 2012, 1:10 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

3 American Gladiators was an awesome show to watch. Two contests of men and women racing around and trying to earn points so they go to the finals. I felt sorry for the contestants because it seemed like the gladiators were too brutual and violent with them through it was suppose to be fake as WWF but that was what made it great: THE VIOLENCE!!! XD. Most remember contestant was the one woman who was replaced a injured contestant and won the finals. Great moment. I don't know if it was early eposides or later but the use of the cheap sets with the black blackgrounds were not good. I wanted the stuff of Romea and loud large audidences, not a cheap TV studio -- Submitted By: (Ani) on May 7, 2010, 11:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The first run of American Gladiators was always fun to watch, even if there was some stuff that could be worked on, or fixed up. The new American Gladiators was just awful though. The Gladiators on the new version seemed like the total worst sports (the Gladiators on the old version could get some trash talking and such going, but they were almost always good sports in the end), and Laila Ali... ugh, anybody else could of did her job much better. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 23, 2010, 2:25 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
