America's most bold and outspoken armchair quarterbacks clearly haven't learned their lesson from some of sports' biggest names. Spike TV has green lit another 10-episode season of the popular sports- themed reality series, Pros vs. Joes, featuring regular guys competing in a variety of sports against an incredible array of sports legends. Season one included Jerry Rice, Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker, Dominique Wilkins, Jennie Finch, and Dennis Rodman among others. The new season debuts in March, 2007. The participating athletes to be announced shortly.
Through seven episodes, season one of Pros vs. Joes has tallied 1.2 million viewers and has successfully reached the hard-to-reach younger male demographics..
"Our audience clearly resonated with the concept that answers the age-old question whether you've really got what it takes to compete against a pro athlete," said Doug Herzog, President, Spike TV, Comedy Central, and TV Land.
