    Default The Contender on NBC

    Hey all,

    I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum cos I don't know if it belongs in the sports, being about boxing and all? Did any of you happen to catch this show tonight? It was a stellar show. The fight at the end was great.

    Looked interesting but I couldn't miss "24". Will they do an encore airing?

    That's to bad about the rating's, but it is a stellar show. I can not believe that dude won that fight, how the hell did that happen?!

    I think some positive word of mouth will help, that first episode was that good.

    I thought the show was great. Funny thing is i was watchin Rocky II on AMC and it hit me that contender was on. I watched it and i loved it. The fight was great at the end. No dancing around the ring but just a good ol fight. Alfonzo was the fighter that won last night. I hope thats his name. Talk about a true underdog. Beat a guy who was 21-0 and Alfonzo was young and had only a record of 10-2. I think its on thursday night and then will be on sundays at 8 for its regular time slot.

    I can't believe the ratings were that poor. I thought that the show was better than what I expected it to be. They managed to combine the elements of Survivor and the Real World/Road Rules challenge and on top of that there is a 5 round elimination fight at the end. What's not to like? I suppose that most women might not like this type of show, even though they did a good job of showing the family element with the boxers. Hopefully word of mouth will get the ratings up because it is a great show.

    I of course have never witnessed him taking a needle in his ass but I saw Sly at a fitness expo(he was plugging his new high protein pudding) in Vegas and someone at his own booth that I was chatting with said that Sly has A LOT of help if you know what I mean! I guess at his age you can't blame him. He does look great but in all fairness he is taking a BIG short cut i.e. the juice but hey...who isn't these days? lol

    Poor Najai Turpin! I just watched the Contender episode when he fought and lost a close fight. He should have picked a shorter opponent, the latin fighters reach was too much. Najai killed himself last month!!!

    Najai just didn't have anything left after that second round where he was relentless. He exhausted himself and didn't have anything left for the last 3 rounds. It was tough watching him at the end playing with his little daughter knowing that in the not so distant future he would end his own life.

    The Contender is a great show. The first episode was great and then I lost the show -- it switched time slots a few times. I guess it is on Sunday evening now, at 7pm Central / 8pm Eastern.

    Hopefully ratings will pick up by word of mouth. I convinced my wife to watch tonight's episode (with Najai) and she started getting all teared up. Looks like we both have a new show to watch on Sunday nights.

    One thing I love about the fight scenes is how they are edited for dramatic effect. The slow motions, the background music, etc. Much more entertaining that a standard boxing fight.

    Stallone is greatness.

    I wonder if the ratings for the Contender have been picking up since the first week when ratings were not too good.
