Buzzerblog have updated this afternoon with dates of forthcoming quite interesting US things of the sort we’re Very Much Interested In:
- Wipeout returns for a sneak preview of the new season on June 21st (i.e. it’s an episode), then the season begins proper two days later on June 23rd, which is one of those baffling things that only happens in America. This is on ABC.
- 101 Ways To Leave a Gameshow begins on ABC on June 21st after the Wipeout preview. I’m really looking forward to seeing the show that Endemol always wanted to make now it is free from the dictatorial constraints of the BBC.
- Expedition Impossible follows Wipeout on Thursday June 23rd. This appears to be Mark Burnett’s Worldwide Adventure Racing EXTREME.
- Take the Money and Run – law enforcement evading game codeveloped by Wild Rover of Secret Fortune fame begins on ABC on August 2nd.
Evidently The Million Dollar Drop proved so popular that Fox don’t want to air it as they feel it unfair on the other networks (joke idea nicked off of Lee and Herring).
Fingers crossed The Amazing Race Australia might be “available” from places this evening.
