This isn’t the first version of Wipeout to hit Canadian shores. Wipeout Québec, which debuted in 2009, currently airs thrice-weekly on V. This has previously been mentioned by Steve Faguy, who points out the basic flaw in the Wipeout Canada press release.
I have a feeling Wipeout Canada will be cut-rate, given Lone Eagle Entertainment’s game show past. The company is going from You Bet Your Ass, Inside the Box and Game On to Wipeout Canada. Wipeout is a far cry from dinky podiums and a slumming Stewart Francis.
Wipeout Canada is a better fit for GameTV, which needs higher-profile shows than Love Handles and, uh, Supermarket Sweep. GameTV is such a quaint channel. Reruns of The Mad Dash and Just Like Mom sound far more appealing than a second season of Carlawood. Maybe it’s just me.
