Whats Worth Watching: Battlebots Keep On Battlin’

David Moir/ABC
BATTLEBOTS - "Episode 101" -- "BattleBots," the epic robot-fighting tournament, kicks off SUNDAY, JUNE 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) as the first round of next generation robots, that promise to be bigger, faster, and stronger than ever before, go head to head on the ABC Television Network. During the first night of the six-episode tournament, 8 teams will converge in an arena of minefield and hazards for the ultimate shot at glory during the Qualifiers round. Each match will consist of a single three- minute bout in which the goal is to completely destroy or disable the opponent. If there is no knockout during the three-minute battle, the panel of judges will declare a victor to move onto the next round. Competitors range from NASA engineers, to teenage students, to everyone in between -- each with one goal -- to claim the ultimate title and walk away with the grand cash prize.

Battlebots, “Crunch Time: Qualifying Round Part 2” (Sunday, June 28, 9/8c, ABC)

You could spend the 9 p.m. hour watching massive egos clash over on HBO, or you can feast your eyes on some insane feats of engineering just absolutely wrecking each other. Thanks to modern technology, you can still watch both at some point, but which experience is more likely to pump you up for the Monday morning preceding a holiday weekend, hm?
