Tonight we are continuing the battle between the network stars. I'm here with Gabe Kaplan, captain of team ABC.
Gabe. How have you enjoyed the battles,
Well Howard, we've been having some great weather and my team has been winning a lot of challenges. So I would have to say, I'm having a great time.
Now I understand Gabe, we are in for something special tonight. Would you care to explain, exactly what it is, we are about, to see.
Tonight we have decided to do something a little different. We have tried track and field, swimming, diving, even a tug-of-war. But we have never tried to see which network has the best voice.
Are we talking singing here? And do you truly believe this activity belongs in a sporting event?
Why not? Athletes have to train their bodies to compete in whatever event they perform. It's true of a singers too. I think we will see how this goes. If it works, it works. If it doesn't work, It was Telly Savalas' idea.
Well, I wish you the best of luck in this event. As do I all the networks.
Remember, The ultimate victory in competition is derived from the inner satisfaction of knowing that you have done your best and that you have gotten the most out of what you had to give.
And with that. Let's let this competition, begin.
All three networks have provided a singer. It will be up to you, the audience, to decide who has the best vocal skills, needed to win.
Team CBS - Lynda Carter will perform 'the Last Song'
For NBC - Lisa Welchel has 'All Because of You'
Finally, Team ABC - Bruce Willis will be singing 'Jackpot'.
Lynda Carter (Diana Prince)
Wonder Woman - 1975-1979
Lisa Welchel (Blair Warner)
The Facts of Life 1979-1988
Bruce Willis (David Addison)
Moonlighting - 1985-1989
Those are the three contenders. Who do you feel deserves the win? ABC, CBS or NBC?
It is now your job. Please vote for your favourite. Additionally, let me know why you feel the way you do. Voting ends on the 21st when I'll cast my vote (if needed) and announce the winner in a separate posting, the next day.
