As an artistic genre, cheerleading is a triumph of forms over substance. As an athletic event, it's up there with celebrity bowling. So why devote so much time to nubile young women in short skirts bouncing provocatively for $25,000 in scholarship money? Teams from five schools demonstrate. Guests include Lee Majors, Jayne Kennedy, K.C. & the Sunshine Band, Barbara Mandrell and Catherine (Dukes of Hazzard) Bach, no stranger to skimpy outfits. Give us a Y...an A...a W...an N.
