One of my fond memories of TV while growing up was all the oddball series and specials about stunts and record-breaking attempts. I remember a bunch of these during the early '80s -- shows such as That's Incredible, Guinness World Records, Games People Play (and to a lesser extent, Real People). There were a few good ones later in the '80s and '90s, like The World's Greatest Stunts.

So it should be no surprise that the commercials for a new ABC series have caught my eye. Master of Champions premieres on Thursday night this week. It looks like it will be over-the-top enough to be a worthy successor to those great classic stunt shows of yore.
