TAR Au 4 - Rumors/Announcements!!!!
« on: October 29, 2014, 07:37:45 AM »
Hey. Just thinking of starting this thread in the unlikely event we get somthing about season 4.

Recently 7 had their upfrounts as their statement on TARAu (and a few other shows) was as follows.
Quote
Seven's director of production, Brad Lyons, said shows such as Bringing Sexy Back, The Amazing Race and The Big Adventure - which have either rated poorly or attracted audiences "too old" for advertisers - are "still on our slate", but did not confirm their renewal.

"We don't have to make calls on them now," Lyons said.

It might be me being optimistic but if Glamping Survivor (Big Adventure) fails (which to put it in perspective, it's doing TARAu3 ratings in the much better 6:30 Sunday & 7:30 Monday timeslots Agaist repeats of Big Bang Theory and its hardily gaining on time shift, unlike TARAu which was 1st or 2nd gainer for the night) then there may be a chance for TARAu.

Again, it might be a long shot but let's at least have a little optimism.

Well BA ratings have gone down again. That is a good sign for TARAU.

Last night TBA hit under 600,000 viewers (from TV Tonight). For a new show in a prime timeslot, that's terrible. TARAus was doing better than that in a later timeslot and as a show returning after a year hiatus.

If only TARAus was given this timeslot now, the ratings could have been much better :(

The Big Dudventure is failing. Monday show for TBA are axed and Sunday shows have moved to 8:30pm with 7's ulitimate filler program (Highway Patrol/other police shows that are all the same) taking over the 7:30 hour on both nights.

My guess is that 7 want to compare how TBA and TARAu will do in similar timeslots to see who gets renewed and who gets the axe. Let's be hopeful that the numbers fall in our favor. :) :hearts: :yess:

I hope we get a Season 4 too. I think Season 3 only did poorly because they waited so long between Seasons 2 and 3 to do it. I think interest is there for them to continue it.

Also less of the Aus vs NZ thing, it felt far too forced, the drama and competitiveness.  Just call it Amazing Race Australia New Zealand Edition or something.

Just add and instead of versus, have like 3 teams of Aussie and Kiwi combined,
three of Aussie, three of Kiwi.

Change TAR Australia to TAR Australasia or TAR Oceania, that way New Zealand citizens can involved the race.
TAR 25: The best season since TAR 17 & TAR 18.
TAR AS3 or UB2 Potential Contestant:
Adam & Bethany (25), Misti & Jim (25), Kym & Alli (25), Shelly & Nici (25), Hayley & Blair (26)

The Australian one should stay Australian-only for mine, otherwise it's gonna be rather difficult to get on the cast when I can finally apply! :grins:

Would love to see a separate NZ race though, for sure.

One of my main hopes from NZ vs Aus was that the ratings would of been enough to convince TVNZ that there is interest in watching our own version of TAR.

Still any news about a 4th season? No signups or anything?
You are the last team to arrive.
This is a Philmination leg, so I'm sorry to tell you that you have been Philiminated from the race.
