BATTLEBOTS, a revival of the original Comedy Central series of the same title, is a competition featuring epic battles to the death between remote-controlled robots. Hosted by Molly McGrath, it hosts eight rounds of battles between "Bots" designed and built by teams made up of builders ranging from scientists and engineers to teenagers and plumbers. The machines face off in three-minute matches, during which they must disable or completely destroy the other in a hazard-filled arena to continue the tournament. The judges, including experienced competitor Fon Davis, NASA astronaut Leland Melvin, and Jessica Chobot of Nerdist, determine who wins the round if theres no clear victor. The creators of the last Bot standing win a major cash prize and the ultimate title. Throughout it all, veteran sports broadcaster Chris Rose, UFC fighter Kenny Florian, and sideline reporters Bobak Ferdowsi and Alison Haislip introduce Bot builders, break down the machines, conduct interviews, and offer lots of energetic play-by-play commentary.
