Wipeout goes for hits

wipeout-ozNine has brought forward an episode of Wipeout Australia “20 Greatest Hits” to air on Tuesday March 31st.

This is the ninth episode in the series, which will now screen in place of the eighth.

It promises: “Tonight’s special episode of Wipeout Australia highlights the top 20 spills, face plants and wipeout’s from the past season.”

A week later networks are in the Easter non-ratings.

Updated 19/3: Cancel that. Ep 8 is back in March 31.


  1. I hope this isn’t the end of Wipeout Australia. My 4 year old and I wait to watch it every Tuesday evening and he especially loves it. Thankfully I recorded some episodes.

  2. well wipeout was not in the “returning after easter” list. which, in no way assures anything. but it is a bit suss. to answer your question ryan. maybe celeb singing bee. pauline hanson is on one of them and i’m sure they would want to use it before her headlines burn out too much.

    fastforewarding the ‘best of’ episode could signal a hiatus. maybe it will return in the summer. i can’t see it getting renued.

  3. I think you’re right Irishbabe – but what do Nine have that will do any better?

    I enjoyed Wipeout the first time I watched it (The first US episode) but once you’ve seen one episode, you’ve seen them all. At least with Gladiators they mixed and matched the games each week.

  4. I don’t think they have any episodes to run after easter anyway…it’s one of those shows that wears of quickly – while good its just too repetitive and enough for maybe just a few eps.

  5. Could this be the sign of the end of Wipeout Australia…? – I reckon Nine will replace Wipeout Australia following the Easter non ratings period… What does everyone else think…?
