American Gladiator first aired on television in 1989 and ran through 1995. American Gladiator is coming back, but a new version made its two hour debut on Sunday, January 6. I happened to catch part of the show yesterday, which Monday will be its new air time.
Johnny Ferraro, the creator of this new show for the fittest, stated in The Year in Sports of Sports Illustrated, that the new version of this show will be “bigger, better, stronger.”
