Last month, ABC revived Battle of the Network Stars for the first time since 1988. This show, which originally aired in 1976, featured stars of current network TV shows duking it out and showing off their athletic abilities. The reboot features mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey and football player DeMarcus Ware as team captains. While the show has certainly changed since the original run, each team tends to feature at least one celebrity who was on the original run of Battle of the Network Stars, like CHiPs veterans Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox who haven't been seen on TV together in years.

The July 27 episode's theme was Cops vs. TV Sitcom stars and the teams were: Erik Estrada, Larry Wilcox, Kelly Hu, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, and Lorenzo Lamas versus Todd Bridges, Leigh-Allyn Baker, Dave Foley, Willie Garson and Jenna von Oy. We shouldn't be surprised that our favorite TV cops won!
