There are two game shows going by the title Wipeout: The 1988-1989 syndicated daytime puzzle game show hosted by the late Peter Tomarken; and the ABC extreme stunt game show hosted by a couple of men named John: John Henson on the comedy side and John Anderson of ESPN on the sports side.
Wipeout (1988-1989) was a challenging, fast-paced puzzle game show in which three (3) contestants were pitted against Peter Tomarken in a race to wipe out the game board comprising nine (9) possible answers to clues from various categories. The first player to win three rounds of play got to play the bonus round for a chance to score points and win the game.
