Battle of the Network Stars #15: 1965-66 TV Season

It's been 37 years since Battle of the Network Stars debuted on November 13, 1976, pitting television stars from ABC, CBS and NBC against each other in various sporting events. So I thought it would be fun to revive this competition by featuring the stars of a different TV season every week.

CBS won the 14th Battle, and the following stars will be moving on to Round 2:

Delta Burke (Designing Women/CBS)
Dixie Carter (Designing Women/CBS)
Alice Ghostley (Designing Women/CBS)
Jean Smart (Designing Women/CBS)
Meshach Taylor (Designing Women/CBS)
Carol Burnett (Fresno/CBS)
Teri Garr (Fresno/CBS)
Gregory Harrison (Fresno/CBS)
Paul Reubens (Pee-wee's Playhouse/CBS)
Amanda Bearse (Married... with Children/Fox)
Ed O'Neill (Married... with Children/Fox)
Johnny Depp (21 Jump Street/Fox)
Bebe Neuwirth (Cheers/NBC)
Corbin Bernsen (L.A. Law/NBC)
Susan Dey (L.A. Law/NBC)
Ellen Burstyn (The Ellen Burstyn Show/ABC)

Now on to our 14th battle, which takes us back to the 1965-66 TV season when we welcomed the following 32 stars into our homes:

One question: why in the world is Robin winning his race, but Batman is losing his?

Diana Rigg vs Julie Newmar? There is no good, and of course no bad, answer! I went with Diana with regrets to Julie but that was the absolute toughest choice of the week.

Lance, that's an easy answer - Robert Conrad! He was a handsome hunk back then. Meanwhile, "Robin" is up against the kid from "Lost in Space".

Thanks for voting, Lance & Joel!
