ABC has renewed summer hit Wipeout for a 2nd season.
Says ABC President Steve McPherson:
"People have embraced it. It's escapism. Certainly in a time with a lot of bad news out there, I think people are having fun with it. I've never had a show that more people in the business want to participate in, wanting to go out to the set and try to do it."
Wipeout has averaged 10.2 million viewers an episode.
