About

Battle of the Network Stars is a series of 19 TV specials (which aired between 1976 and 1988) featuring competitions among teams of popular television performers representing the three major broadcast networks: ABC, CBS, and NBC. It consisted of a two-hour sequence of competitive physical challenges. Legendary sports broadcaster Howard Cosell hosted or co-hosted almost all of the specials, and commented on the action with a semi-serious version of the style for which he was famous.
