A revival of the 1989-96 syndicated competition series "American Gladiators" will premiere at midseason on NBC, which is promising "splashy twists including special effects, water skills and the latest technology." As in the original, the new version of "American Gladiators" will pit contestants against eight gladiators in a series of competitions, with the Joust, the Wall, Hang Tough and the Eliminator returning.

I could never figure out what Todd Christensen was doing on the Raiders. He wasn't wanted by the police anywhere. He never busted up a bar in Tampa. He didn't even drink. He paid his bills, shaved every day. He didn't arrive at the line of scrimmage in a foul humor, he didn't particularly hate anybody in a different uniform, he smiled a lot. He loused up the team photo. Also its image. Call himself a Raider? What was he--chaplain?

Breaking into television wasn't the snap that it seemed it was going to be Saturday for Sue Farwell. She tore through the chin-ups, 40-yard dash, tug-of-war and obstacle course with fierce determination in hopes of becoming a contestant on a new TV series that calls itself the ultimate game show. Then she tore her left knee with a twisting snap as she threw herself into her last test: a one-on-one "power ball" game that turned out to be a blend of tackle football and pro wrestling.
