“Wipeout” a washout

Yes, you can make a judgement in 7 minutes.

ABC’s new “game” show, “Wipeout”, is a ripoff of SpikeTV’s “Most Extreme Elimination Challenge”.  All it’s missing are MXC’s humor, fast pace, and entertaining characters.  “Wipeout” is leaden and terribly unfunny.

I don’t expect ABC to air a second episode.  And if there is one, I won’t be watching.  At 8:07, I switched to “Celebrity Family Feud”… it’s more entertaining to watch Joan Rivers give answers without her face actually moving than it is to watch MXC-on-downers.
