Denkou Choujin Gridman, translated into English as Lightning Superman Gridman, is a Japanese tokusatsu "Giant Hero" series by Tsuburaya Productions, the producers of Ultraman. The show ran from 1993 to 1994. It was the inspiration and source material for DiC Entertainment's Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad. This would be Tsuburaya's last non-Ultra superhero production before Bio Planet WoO.

Tsuburaya, having switched to digital techniques since then, would continue to use D-2 for all future productions.
Gridlock is an Irish television game show, hosted by Derek Mooney, that premiered on RTÉ on September 14, 1998. Gridlock replaced the long-running series Blackboard Jungle, which was hosted by Ray D'Arcy. The show lasted only one season. There were two teams of two people, each team representing a secondary school. One player on each team would answer general knowledge questions, while the other would try to achieve "gridlock" on a puzzle diagram. Due to the complex nature of the puzzle, viewers, the studio audience, and sometimes even contestants, struggled to follow the show. As a result of this, ratings dwindled and Gridlock was canceled after just one series. Gridlock was once again the topic of the Irish nation in 2013. Former contestant and celebrity doctor, Niall Breen, made an appearance on rival quiz show, Countdown, on Channel 4 where he made the controversial claim that Gridlock should have been given at least one more season. Brendan Cole, who was appearing as a guest on the show, shared Breen's opinion. RTE released a statement denouncing Breen's comments as 'out of hand' and 'wholly inappropriate' and claimed any rumours about a new series of Gridlock were incorrect.
Battle of the Gridiron Stars is a television show that airs on ESPN. It pits teams of National Football League players, one from the American Football Conference and the National Football Conference, against each other in various athletic events. The program, which takes its inspiration from the likes of Battle of the Network Stars and The Superstars, is produced by IMG, the world's leading sports management firm. The show takes place at Disney's Wide World of Sports in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Each team is coached by a former NFL quarterback: Archie Manning coaches the National team, and Ken Stabler coaches the American team. Battle began in the spring of 2005 as ESPN sought replacement programming for the National Hockey League, which was in the midst of a lockout that would cost the league its entire season. Because of good ratings, and also in light of ESPN losing the NHL rights to OLN, the series was renewed in 2006. Due to licensing restrictions, no actual team names or game highlights are used on the program.
