– MGM has decided to bring back Gladiators 2000, a teen-oriented game show that spun-off of American Gladiators in the mid-1990’s and was hosted by Ryan Seacrest (gee, wonder what he’s doing now?) The program’s 39 episodes (originally produced by Samuel Goldwyn Television), will return to weekly syndication in September 2008, to meet stations’ (E/I) requirements (as it did then.)
– Litton’s new Storm Storieshas cleared 70 percent of the country, earning it a “firm go” for next season. The program will air locally on WGN-TV, with popular weather personality Tom Skilling the likely host.
– Not related to NATPE, but CBS renewed Survivor for two more editions next season, and NBC has picked up Celebrity Apprentice for next season as well.
