Cheers: Wipeout Is In

Wipeout by Adam Larkey/ABC

Cheers to the summer's biggest surprise: Wipeout . I didn't think I'd make it through a single episode of ABC's obstacle-course reality show, muchless become one of the sleeper hit's 10 million weekly viewers. It turns out watching people fall on their faces — among other body parts — never gets old. (I guess that's why so many slapstick silent films are still funny.) Hosts John Anderson and John Henson and field reporter Jill Wagner make a winning team, but the real stars are the "Big Balls," enormous red spheres responsible for the show's most spectacular wipeouts. The "big balls" jokes never grow old, either. Good thing, since ABC just picked up the show for a second season.• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on TVGuide.com or in TV Guide magazine! read more

Got Garlic?
Some kick, but no bite, in vampire drama

Normally I'm a sucker for a good bloodsucker, but I've seen paper cuts go deeper than Blade (Wednesdays at 10 pm/ET on Spike TV), the toothless new TV version of the comic-book-turned-film franchise about a hip-hop, Harley-riding, half-breed vampire who's bad news for his more evil brethren. Where Buffy the Vampire Slayer took a mediocre film and elevated it to TV art, Blade doesn't even try to improve on the loud, flashily hollow movies. It's just more of the same martial artlessness. I kept expecting to see Batman-style OOF! BAM! graphics on screen. "Sun's down. Time to make some friends," mutters Blade (Over There's Kirk read more
