CBS, ABC Line Up Heavyweights To Knock Out Contender

Let's see how many bad boxing puns I can write in one item: The competition is hitting below the belt to put NBC's new boxing reality show The Contender down for the count- before the show even steps into the ring.

How seriously do the other networks want to bloody The Contender? ABC has scheduled a two hour Extreme Makeover to battle the premiere of the Sylvester Stallone/Mark Burnett heavyweight, and CBS has gone to the unusual step of scheduling reruns on the last night of sweeps in order to have fresh episodes of Two and a Half Men and CSI: Miami to counter-program.

Hope NBC has the smelling salts ready.
