Okay, I don't know how many of you watch TV any more, there isn't often much good on now a days. However, Tony and I have found another show we absolutely LOVE! We just laugh our heads off (well, not literally) when we remember to tune in to ABC on Tuesday nights. Wipeout! is a show that ABC started during the summer and it turned out to be a big hit. It is great for laughs, although we both think someone has to be an idiot to actually go on the show (although they've had a few Olympians, a Miss Olympia, and world champions in different events...usually making a laughing stock of themselves).

It's hard to explain Wipeout! other than it involves lots of mud and lather, a battering wall, big bouncing balls, several obstacle courses, the final wipeout course, and a lot of contestants who think they have a much better chance at success than they actually do. There are folks who are actually quite good at getting through the obstacles, but for the most part, ya just gotta laugh at them and the situations they get in! Even Luke and Susanna laugh hysterically at the antics!

Other than a few adult innuendos that pretty much fly over the heads of young viewers (well, maybe not older teens), this is a pretty family friendly show -- there is some inappropriate language occasionally (usually when someone ends up in the mud or punched in the face by the battering wall)...but it's bleeped out.

So, if you aren't doing anything Tuesday evening and are ready for a good laugh, tune in to ABC during the first hour of prime time (for us, it's 7:00; for most of you, it's probably 8:00). Let me know what you think....or if you've already watched it!
