Duels, or “classy show-downs” as they are often called by no one, have been solving hot debates for ages. They're useful for delivering crowds a champion, through often unpredictable means (just ask Alexander Hamilton). Television loves a surprise, so what better way to measure and battle elements of TV than with a duel?

"The lesson I've learned is to keep my phone off when the 1950's gym teacher is on duty." Ah. Right.

Even Wegmans Wants No Part of Alec Baldwin's Tarnished Star
