Best Show Ever

Does the name Wesley "Two Scoops" Berry mean anything to you? How about Rico Constantino or Mark Ortega? If those do nothing for you, how about:

Nitro
Gemini
Zap
Lace
Laser
Turbo
Thunder
Diamond
Storm
Viper
Sabre
Sky
Lace #2
Hawk



They were more than just American. They were more than just Gladiators. They were rockstars. The names immediately bring to mind Saturday mornings watching what was the most exciting television show I'd ever seen. Everyone watched it. Back during the peak of it's popularity, I even had the extreme pleasure of getting tickets to see the touring version of the show. Local challengers battled the Gladiators right in our arena, in the very same games we watched on TV. It was a highlight of my life. And now I, and you, can relive those Saturday mornings every day of the week.
ESPN Classic now owns the rights to American Gladiators, and the show joined the regular weeknight lineup on April 2, 2007 with daily airings of the show at 7 PM Eastern Monday-Friday and weekend airings Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9AM and 10 AM Eastern. The series premiered on the channel with a seven hour marathon from 1PM-8PM Eastern on Saturday, March 31st, 2007.
