VH1 Settles the Most Heated Debates of Pop Culture with 'The Great Debate' Hosted by Michael Buffer

The 5 Night Event Premieres on Monday, July 6th at 10 PM*

NEW YORK, June 2 -- Star Trek or Star Wars? Ginger or Mary Ann? Boxers or briefs? These are some of the most important questions in the history of everything. And now, VH1, the worldwide authority on all things pop culture, is going to answer them--once and for all.

The hottest pop culture debates ever will be argued and settled in "The Great Debate" premiering on Monday, July 6th at 10 PM*. The 5-night event will be hosted by boxing and wrestling ring announcer Michael Buffer, famous for this catchphrase, "Let's get ready to rumble!" No holds will be barred. And all decisions will be final!

Beginning on Monday, July 6th through Friday, July 10th at 10 PM* every night, VH1 will settle the pop culture debates that have caused sleepless nights, ended friendships and consumed millions upon millions of nerd-hours. Each night will grow in intensity, from the "CALIENTE" first hour (Dreamiest Travolta Stud: Danny Zuko vs. Tony Manero) to the "INFERNO" final hour (Who is the greatest band of all-time? Beatles vs. Stones).

In addition to Michael Buffer, celebs of the past and present will appear to make their arguments on these terribly vital issues. Some of the guests include DMC, Gilbert Gottfried, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Hulk Hogan, Jerry Springer, Ray J, Omarosa, Salt-N-Pepa, Tila Tequila, Statler and Waldorf, Shana Moakler and Perez Hilton

Among the topics they'll be debating with the help of VH1 panelists: Who's more bootylicious, Beyonce or J.Lo? Who's tougher, Rocky or Rambo? Whose side are you on, Team Aniston or Team Jolie? What was the most awesome 80's power ballad, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" or "Home Sweet Home?"

So join VH1 for "The Great Debate" premiering on Monday, July 6th at 10 PM*. The time has come, you've asked the questions and now we're gonna settle them... forever!

Additionally, fans can weigh in on several debates like "Hot or Not?" and "Funny or Not?" online at GreatDebate.VH1.com beginning Monday, June 1. The results of each online debate will appear on-air during the weeklong series.

"The Great Debate" is a production of VH1. Pat Twist and Jon Rubin serve as Series and Show Producers while Jeff Olde, Shelly Tatro and Karla Hidalgo will serve as Executive Producers.
