I saw a bit of this show on Trio last night... what is it? Robert Conrad as the captain of the NBC team... very amusing when he picked a fight over the results of the race. But I don't know what the show is.

What is Trio?

As for what it is, the title says it. It was a contest between network stars of the time. I think Robert Conrad was doing Black Sheep at the time.

I know I've been a naughty girl lately, what with not posting here. We got a dish last month, and I've been watching WAY too much TV. Trio is a station focusing on "Pop, Culture, and TV" according to their ads.

Most Springy one, I don't know anything more about the show than I've already mentioned. I've watched a couple more episodes since I posted this, but I don't really know any more. They have a brief bio of the actors occasionally, and they mentioned that he was on West, but that's about it.

At one point there was a fuss over who actually won a race. Conrad was the captain of one team, Telly Savalas was the captain of another, and the judge ruled that Conrad's team was to be penalized for what they did wrong. They agreed to do a run-off... Conrad said to Telly, You're Greek, you want to compete. He said to the judge, You're Jewish. You want to mediate. Referring to himself, he said I'm German, I want to kill you both.

I wish he really did bash that chair over Bill Maher's head.

TRIO's a fun channel, they show the old Late Night with David Letterman every weeknight at 10 eastern

Unfortunately, my cable company does not get TRIO. Is there anyone out there willing to tape Battle of the Network Stars for me. I'd gladly pay for your time and tapes. Please let me know. Thank you so much.
