Wipeout Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Wipeout was an American game show television series that featured contestants competing in (what was billed as) the "World's Largest" obstacle course. Wipeout was hosted and commentated by John Henson and John Anderson, while Jill Wagner acted as the "on-location" reporter. The show aired on ABC from June 24, 2008 to September 7, 2014. The interim reporter for one season was Vanessa Lachey. The creators and executive producers are Matt Kunitz and Scott Larsen. Distribution of the show was handled by Endemol Shine North America. The show was taped at Sable Ranch in Canyon Country, Santa Clarita, California, north of Los Angeles.

The concept and style of the show has been compared to several Japanese game shows, most notably Unbeatable Banzuke , SASUKE and Takeshi's Castle. This was brought to the attention of the Japanese broadcaster Tokyo Broadcasting System, who filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against ABC, charging that Wipeout is "a blatant copycat" of several of its classic Japanese competition game shows. Among the charges are that ABC bought search terms such as MXC (the Americanized comedy version of Takeshi's Castle) on Google to help drive traffic to the official Wipeout page, and that specific obstacles in Wipeout were knock-offs of challenges in those Japanese game shows.
