QUICK TAKE

ABC'S SUMMER SERIES "DOWNFALL" AND "SHAQ VS" WILL EACH PREMIERE ONE WEEK EARLIER

"Wipeout's" New Premiere Time on June 22 is 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET

Please note the following changes to ABC's previously announced summer schedule:

DOWNFALL - NEW PREMIERE DATE, TUESDAY, JUNE 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m.) -- "Downfall" is a unique, high-stakes, adrenaline-charged and larger-than-life game show from FremantleMedia North America ("The Price Is Right," "Family Feud," "Let's Make a Deal"). Played atop a tall building in the middle of a metropolitan landscape, the game has contestants quickly answer a series of trivia questions against the clock. If they play the perfect game, they could leave with a million dollars in cash and prizes. But if not, they could just as easily see their hopes and dreams slip through their fingers and off the side of the building -- literally.

WIPEOUT - NEW PREMIERE TIME, TUESDAY, JUNE 22 (8:00-9:00 p.m.) -- The third season of "Wipeout" will feature brand new, bigger, better and wilder obstacles, in addition to specially themed episodes like "Ladies Night," "Family Edition" and "Wipeout Blind Date." Each week, 24 energetic new contestants of all ages, shapes and sizes go head to head through four rounds of demanding but hilarious obstacle courses to win the title of "Wipeout Champion" and the $50,000 grand prize. In the end, only one contestant will be victorious, while everyone else will Wipeout!

The series is hosted by John Anderson (ESPN's "SportsCenter,"), John Henson ("Talk Soup") and co-hosted by Jill Wagner. "Wipeout" executive producers are Matt Kunitz ("Fear Factor") and Scott Larsen. Shye Sutherland, Kevin Wehrenberg, Trice Barto and J. Rupert Thompson are co-executive producers. The series is produced by Endemol USA. David Goldberg is the chairman of Endemol North America.

SHAQ VS - NEW PREMIERE DATE, TUESDAY, AUGUST 3 (9:00-10:00 p.m.) - "Shaq VS" stars Shaquille O'Neal as he faces off against top athletes in their respective fields. In Season One, O'Neal faced off against Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh in beach volleyball, the St. Louis Cardinals' Albert Pujols in baseball, Oscar de la Hoya in boxing and Michael Phelps in swimming. Episodes in Season Two will not rely solely on sporting matches but will also feature some fun, comedic non-sports competitions such as a spelling bee contest or a dance crew battle, among others. Casting for the second season is currently underway.

"Shaq VS" is produced by Media Rights Capital in association with dick clark productions. Orly Adelson, Will Staeger and Barry Adelman of dick clark productions, Shaquille O'Neal, Scott Messick Perry Rogers and Steve Nash serve as executive producers.
