Picks and Pans Review: The Contender
CBS (10-11:30 p.m. ET)
Marc Singer stars as a young boxer trying to escape a blue-collar upbringing in this series tryout. The cast standouts, however, are Moses Gunn as a cynical trainer and Tina (Days of Our Lives) Andrews as the feisty kid sister of a rival pugilist. The premiere loses by a split decision: The fight scenes are dramatic, but otherwise there's too much waltzing.
