It didn't take long for reality guru Mark Burnett to find a home for The Contender, his latest unscripted experiment that's basically American Idol set within the boxing world. NBC agreed to shell out a record $2 million per episode for the show, beating out rival bids from ABC, CBS and Fox. As we reported here Thursday, The Contender — which Burnett is producing with DreamWorks' Jeffrey Katzenberg and erstwhile Rocky, Sylvester Stallone — aims to find America's next boxing superstar.
