    (ended 1979)
    From 1971 to 1979, Sports Challenge ran as good a sports trivia show as television ever saw. Two teams of celebrity panelists, usually from conflicting sports (but not always), competed for sports athletic equipment donated to youth organizations suggested by viewers. The five-round game show always concluded with the "Bonus Biography" Round, where a silhouette was paired with a succession of clues. During 1973, Sports Challenge enjoyed its most successful period, broadcasting nationwide on CBS for the first time. Most other seasons were on syndicated television. ESPN Classic regularly aired reruns of Sports Challenge from 1998 to 2003. Today the network will only bring episodes back as part of marathons devoted to individual athletes. For example, the image seen here is taken from the show ESPN Classic dug up in December 2003 as part of an Otto Graham tribute. (It also marked the closest finish in the history of any Sports Challenge game.)moreless

    MGM
    Gladiators 2000 is a spin-off of the original long-running American Gladiators series, hosted by Ryan Seacrest and Maria Sansone and following four child athletes who compete against each other in teams of two to conquer a series of intense physical challenges while also proving their smarts during several educational segments. This series began in 1994, while the original American Gladiators was still broadcasting new episodes, entertaining audiences across the country with intense competitions between amateur athletes and professional body builders like Nitro, Laser, Ice, Blaze, and Zap. In this series, the format is changed to feature younger contestants who work in cooperation with a Gladiator to work their way to the finish. While the format is different, several of the classic events are still used in this show, such as the Wall, Assault, and of course, the Eliminator. Gladiators 2000 is a fun and informative series about young student-athletes competing to prove not only their physical skills, but their mental ones, too.moreless

    CBC
    Hockey Night In Canada has been a national institution in Canada since 1952, when Foster Hewitt's familiar "Hello, Canada!" ushered hockey fans into the era of television. The first NHL game to be televised on Canadian Broadcasting Company was a game in Montreal on Oct. 11, 1952 and the first Finals in 1953, which were broadcast in French on CBC Radio-Canada only in Quebec, perhaps only in the Montreal area. Rene Lecavalier was the play-by-play man and only the three games in Montreal were televised. English language telecasts began in 1954 with Danny Gallivan at the microphone. Danny was followed by Bill Hewitt and Bob Cole were the primary play-by-play announcers through the 2008 Finals. Beginning in 2009, Jim Hughson took over the play-by-play duties with Craig Simpson alongside for color commentary.

    The Finals telecasts have been hosted by Ron McLean since 1987. He also hosts the popular Coach's Corner with the outspoken Don Cherry.moreless

    Showtime
    Inside the NFL is one of the longest running, Emmy award winning sports shows on cable television today. Each episode has some of the most exciting player profiles, interviews and footage as well as expert comentary from past players from around the NFL. Current hosts include James Brown, Cris Collinsworth, Phil Simms and Warren Sapp who provide the in depth coverage that fans have come to expect since the shows long history. Inside the NFL began in 1977 with its original hosts, Al Meltzer and Chuck Bednarik, but is wasn't until 1979 that the show started to take form, with the hosts that would be on the show for the next 22 seasons, being Len Dawson and Nick Bounichonti. In 1990, Cris Collinsworth joined the cast of the show, and the three-man setup was there for 5 more seasons until they added some others to fill that 4th spot, whether it was Jimmy Johnson for his lone season in 1996, or Jerry Glanville, who was there from 1997 to 2001. In 2000, Dan Marino joined the cast after retiring from 17 years in the NFL, and was immediately a fan favorite. After the 2001 season and the shows 25th season, Len Dawson, Nick Bounichonti, and Jerry Glanville left the show because in Len and Nick's case, they were getting too old and Cris Collinsworth took the lead host role. In 2002, Bob Costas and Cris Carter came on the show, and joined Cris Collinsworth and Dan Marino. That foursome went from 2002-2007, ending with what was supposed to be the last ever episode of Inside the NFL, on February 6th 2008. Then for the 2008 NFL Season, Inside the NFL was picked up by Showtime, and the current cast for that show is James Brown, Phil Simms, Cris Collinsworth, and Warren Sapp. Historical segments from the show included the Cover Story, Where are They Now, NFL Crosstalk, Teeing Off, and now there are segments called Grab Bag, King for a Day, Phil's Pet Peeves, and Ask Warren Anything. Inside the NFL is now going into it's 33rd season and it now the longest running sports show on TV, and the second longest non-soap oprea show TV only behind The Price is Right.moreless

    USA (ended 2008)
    WWE Sunday Night Heat was created in high hopes to be a follow up major network show on WWE's broadcasting. With RAW, this show, WWF Superstars, and Shotgun Saturday Night, these were the only shows when Sunday Night Heat started. Originally, major stars such as Triple H, Mick Foley and Steve Austin were featured. In what began in 1998, Sunday Night Heat was a live show on Sunday Nights and angles would routinely be continued on Heat. Since the introduction of WWE SmackDown, Sunday Night Heat continues the storylines and drama's that originated on WWE Raw. You can catch local indy talent taking on some of the less used, but still valuable superstars from WWE Raw. The show was renamed to WWE Heat and then removed from the airwaves on America TV. However the WWE continue to perform the show and web stream it to the US. Heat aired a while longer in the UK. But it's last show was on June 1, 2008.moreless

    Follow
    The Nine Network
    The AFL Footy Show serves both as a preview panel show for each round of the Australian Football League Premiership season, and as a variety/entertainment program. The show has four main stars: former footballer Garry Lyon; radio/television personality James Brayshaw (both of whom replace former host Eddie McGuire, see below); 300 game Geelong legend, the often-controversial John 'Sam' Newman; and comedian Trevor Marmalade, who sits 'behind the bar' and makes humourous observations. Each week the show also includes a panel of three AFL personalities. This could include notable media/commentary stars (and often retired players) such as Dermott Brereton and Billy Brownless, and often current players, with regulars including James Hird, Shane Crawford, Brendan Fevola, Nathan Brown, Nathan Buckley, and Jason Akermanis, as well as a whole host more. Aside from discussing news and controversies in the immediate past weekend of football, the show features several variety segments. In 2005 these included: Sam's Mailbag: Sam reads viewer letters and generally abuses the authors for their stupidity. Street Talk: Sam takes to the streets for some vox pops and interviews random members of the public; although these segments begin with a topic of discussion, Sam usually finds "not-quite-with-it" pedestrians who quickly get off topic. Almost Football Legends: Trevor airs and commentates three videos of quality marks or goals, or funny errors from suburban football. Bullet and Gunn: Inane spoof of Starsky and Hutch starring Shane Crawford and Gary Lyon. Screamers: Pop Idol-style competition pitting two people linked to an AFL club against each other - the final prize for the player and club is valued higher than the prize money for winning the AFL Premiership. For its first twelve years the show had been hosted by Channel Nine presenter and Collingwood President Eddie McGuire. However in February 2006 it was announed that McGuire had been appointed to CEO of the Nine Network. Taking this position prevented him from continuing his on-screen roles, which has led to his replacement by Lyon and Brayshaw this season.moreless
