Scoop: SPLASH on ABC - Tuesday, March 19, 2013After weeks of training with professional divers and being mentored by the world's most decorated and medaled diving legend, Greg Louganis, five of the ten celebrity contestants will face their fears as they flip, twist and spin into the depths of the pool below. The two with the lowest scores will go head to head in a dive-off to determine who will be the first contestant sent home, on the series premiere of "Splash," TUESDAY, MARCH 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The following week, the remaining five celebrity contestants will compete and showcase their daring dives.
