    Nickelodeon (ended 2004)
    Rocket Power premiered on Nickelodeon on August 16, 1999, and can now be seen weekdays at 4:30 A.M EST onNicktoons Network, and on Sunday mornings at 6:00 A.M. EST on Nickelodeon. The show is about four friends who are addicted to action and extreme sports. Otto Rocket, his sister Reggie, and their pals Twister and Sam excel at just about every aggressive sport you can imagine. Their hometown of Ocean Shores, CA is the ultimate place for a game of hockey, skating the half-pipe or rollerblading on the boardwalk. There are extreme sports for all seasons, however, so don't be surprised if you catch the kids heading up to the mountains for snowboarding, ice hockey, and all manner of arctic action. All that competition can get, well, pretty competitive sometimes. So it's a good thing folks like Otto and Reggie's dad Ray and his business partner Tito Makani are around to remind everyone that way cool friendships are more important than winning events. Main Characters Otto Rocket: Otto is the leader of the group. As they say in the episode "All About Sam", he's a total action guy. He can be selfish and overly-competitive at times, and even more unreliable, but he tries to be a good friend, and more often than not, he does a pretty good job at it. He's also "rad" on wheels, waves and powder, and he plays a mean game of hockey! Reggie Rocket: Reggie is Otto's older sister, by two years. She's awesome at sports, and at times, she can be as competitive as her younger brother. She can be a little bossy sometimes, but she really doesn't mean to be. She is mostly the one who keeps Otto down to earth when he gets a bit too self-centered, and there are times when she acts as his conscience. So there's a lot more to this action-loving girl athlete that what she can do with a skateboard, a surfboard, a hockey stick, and a laptop. Maurice "Twister" Rodriguez: Twister is Otto's best bro. He's totally rad with his video camera, which he uses to tape all the extreme stunts he, Otto, and Reggie do. He's a little bit slow on the uptake, but in a totally sweet (well, the girls on this site think that) and comical way. Samuel L. "Squid" Dullard: Sam is probably the least extreme of the group, but that doesn't make him any less awesome. He's Reggie's best bro. He helps her publish her Zine on his laptop. Sam is pretty much the brains of The Rocket Gang, but it's his fear of risks that helps to keep the gang from going too far. Ray "Raymundo" Rocket: Ray has done a lot of things in his long life. But if the kids get into some trouble, they get a big punishment! Other then that he's a really nice guy. Tito Makani: Tito is a native of the beautiful state of Hawaii. He is really nice guy. He gives the "little cuzzes" Ancient Hawaiian advice and help with surfing. Sometimes he can go a little overboard with what he's doing, but it all comes out ok. From March 26 to April 8, 2002 a contest and show called Maximum Rocket Power Live: The Battle For Madtown Park where teams would compete in extreme sports like the Rocket Gang did. It got cancelled due to low ticket sales. It was supposed to tour cities all over the Midwest. The Show ended after the TV Movie episode "The Big Day" on July 30, 2004.moreless

    Home Run Derby

    Home Run Derby

    Follow
    (ended 1960)
    It's A Home Run, Or Nothing –

    In late 1959, Ziv Television Programs, Inc. – The Production Company responsible for such TV gems as Bat Masterson, Boston Blackie, Highway Patrol, and Sea Hunt – Bought the idea of pitting Major League Baseball's greatest Superstar Sluggers against one another, one-on-one, in a contest of hitting power, and this syndicated program was born. Produced by Lou Breslow and hosted by Actor and Baseball Broadcaster Mark Scott, it was released in the Winter of 1960. The line-up was stellar, over the short run of the series, with 19 of MLB's greatest stars – Including 9 future Hall-Of-Famers – Competing.

    The rules were really quite simple. Any pitch within the strike zone that wasn't swung on, any swing-and-miss, any foul ball, and any fair ball not hit over the wall was counted as an out. In short – As Mark Scott stated, numerous times, during the series – It was "A home run, or nothing, on Home Run Derby". Each batter was, of course, allowed 3 outs per inning, and the batter with the most out-of-the-parkers, at the end of 9 innings was the winner. The winner was awarded a check for $2000, and was invited back to face a new opponent, in the next contest, and the loser would receive $1000. Any batter who hit 3 consecutive homers during the contest would receive a $500 bonus, a 4th would be worth another $500, and any consecutive homers after that were worth a thousand bucks, each. And, in an interesting reversal of one of the hazards of regular baseball, the Pitcher who threw the most home run balls was also awarded a bonus, rather than being replaced.

    The show was filmed at Los Angeles's Wrigley Field, a park which was chosen for 2 reasons: 1.) It was available during the off-season, and 2.) It was mostly symmetrical, it's fence distances nearly the same on each side, which meant that a left-handed batter would have the same advantage as a right-hander. Famed MLB Umpire (And future Actor) Art Passarella did the judging behind the plate, and other Umps were placed along the 1st and 3rd baselines, to judge foul balls, and confirm the homers.

    During one participant's turn at bat, Scott and the other participant would sit together in a makeshift broadcast booth, situated in an open-sided tent, not far from home plate. Scott, in typical Baseball Announcer-type fashion, would deliver the play-by-play (Or, in this case, pitch-by-pitch), and, between pitches, would make light, informal conversation with the other participant, usually about one or the other's performance in the contest.

    Mark Scott died not long after the filming of the 1st and only season, and, unfortunately, the series died with him. The Producers decided not to replace him, and simply brought the series – Which was only moderately popular – To and end. But many a baseball fan – Especially the older ones – Would find this interesting, short-lived series a lot of fun to watch.moreless

    From the producer of The Apprentice and Survivor comes a new unscripted series that will launch a competitive search for the next boxing superstar. The Contender will follow 16 aspiring boxers from training camp through an evolving series of ring challenges and boxing matches over 16 episodes. For the first eight episodes, the winner of the fight-of-the-week will be rewarded with a guaranteed spot in the Quarter Finals. After four weeks of these Quarter Finals, two weeks of Semi-Finals will follow. In the show's last week, the final victor will claim a $1,000,000 prize. The driving force behind the series will be the pursuit of the American dream and the natural trials, tribulations and heartbreak inherent in that quest combined with the drama and tension of the sweet science. The canvas of the show is much broader than boxing - it will give viewers a first hand look into the real life hopes, triumphs and defeats of the contestants. The Contender will be a joint production of Mark Burnett Productions, DreamWorks Television and Rogue Marble. Sylvester Stallone, Mark Burnett, and Jeffrey Katzenberg are the executive producers. NBC cancelled The Contender in May of 2005 after only one season. After three months of shopping around, Mark Burnett finally sold it to ESPN. The sports cable channel will begin airing the series in the Spring of 2006. ESPN has the option of picking the series up for an extra two seasons.
