Title: TAR Au 4 - Rumors/Announcements!!!!
Post by: theamazingracer21 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.

Last night TBA hit under 600,000 viewers (from TV Tonight (http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/11/soft-start-for-the-week-but-60-minutes-beats-the-big-adventure.html)). 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,

Change TAR Australia to TAR Australasia or TAR Oceania, that way New Zealand citizens can involved the race.

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 nothing confirmed but the recent ratings failular of 7's Restaurant Revolution can only be good news for TARAu possiblily returning for 2015.  :conf: :conf:

Thursday's airing of RR only achieved 415,000. 415,000 is terrible considering that this was hyped up for months in advanced, and aired in the prime time 7:30 timeslot.

For comparison, TARAUvsNZ stayed around low-mid 600,00 in a 9:00 slot (and aired often upto 15+ minutes later due to The X Factor draging on their Monday elimination show :barf) plus a solid 100k in timeshift rattings and nd compared to RR, TARAu was hardly promoted by 7.

This situation of RR is very reminiscent of (if not worse then) 7's 2013 run of The Mole which ultimately lead to TARAu returning in 2014. So there is precedent for TARAu returning from another shows failular.

PS: Sorry for being desperate and hanging on to whatever little hope we have. As I said in the first post of this thread, let's be optimistic. :cheer: :cheer:

I too am holding onto hope, but I don't know. Season 3 saw only like half the audience of seasons 1 and 2, it was pretty bad (ratings work a little differently in Australia, they only count how many people watched in the 5 big cities, not the whole country).

I ran across an interesting tweet from yesterday. I don't think it's really TAR Australia filming, but I thought I'd pass it along for thoughts and comments. I certainly don't see any sign of teams. It looks more like a travel show.

I just finished watching TAR Aus vs NZ, and I must say that I like the concept of having 2 nations, but it didn't turn out quite well in some parts due to irrational rivalry. :umn:

Anyway, TAR Aus 2 was great :hearts: and TAR Aus 3 was good enough! :yess: I would want a 4th season of this with all-Australians or contestants from different parts of Australia & Oceania. :) The editing was way better here than in recent TAR US versions. :lol:

7 have not announced any TAR for 2015 or 2016. I think the odds of 7 bringing back TARAu for 2017 is slim. :(  :'( :'(

At least us Aussies have Australian Survivor to look forward to. :trampb:

But hopefully it doesn't follow its footsteps by stopping at the 4th season.

Title: Re: TAR Au 4 - Rumors/Announcements!!!!
Post by: Maanca on June 03, 2016, 10:41:56 AM
I too wonder if TAR Asia's revival after 6 years is a sign that there's hope for TAR Australia. But then again, the difference is Asia 4 went out on a high note in the ratings, whereas Australia 3 tanked :(

But if there is, maybe a new host. By season 3 you could kinda tell Grant was phoning it in, he barely acknowledged the race on his Twitter, even during airing.

I just wonder if TARA4 will be back in 2017. I really do think it will. However, I don't think Grant Bowler would back to host. I hope maybe it's Daryl Somers or someone. I just been googling around and I just have that feeling that 3 years off, is just enough time to work on it and make it better. I really just hope Channel 7 will renew the series because I'm DYING to see another season!

TAR Aus hasn't been off the air for eight years! It's been four!

But hey, at least there's a glimmer of hope! Ten has freed up A LOT of money, after losing the Big Bash to Channel Seven earlier this year AND being brought by CBS...

I really don't want him to host. He bores me very much, even more than Grant used to!

I didn't mind Grant's hosting style, but the reason why TAR Australia 3 (Australia vs. New Zealand) was delayed because Grant wanted to focus on his acting career. That's why they need a new host. Grant also hosted the Australian version of The Mole.

Post by: BourkieBoy on June 30, 2018, 10:30:42 PM
Yeah, I really don't think Grant will return to host Season 4!

That's good, IMO. He is so boring.

Matty J is also known as Matty Johnson. He was the bachelor on Season 4 of The Bachelor Australia! He now works on a radio station in Sydney? I think.

I also hope it's not him. I hoping it will be someone like Andrew O'Keefe, or Ryan Fitzgerald!

WOW! This would be amazing!

I would still like Grant to host though. There's just something about having the same host throughout the run. Even the new TAR China decided to go back to Allan Wu hehe
And Grant doesn't have a regular series right now though unlike before around TARAu3, he was just starting Syfy's Defiance I think.

Grant in Season 3 was kinda like "I don't want to be here, I just want to get paid." He did at least have that one great moment in Namibia of doing a task intro holding up a wild cat :D

If TAR Aus 4 does come back, it will most likely be shown in Channel Ten (owned by CBS). I'm not sure if they'll change the production team, but there is most likely to be a new host ! (Matty Johnson, from The Bachalor Australia 4)

Well, Active TV doesn't have the rights to any TAR franchise anymore (AXN took over for TARA5, TARPH is dead). Though I think they still help TAR Israel? And 7 took over with in-house production for TARAu3. So unless they enlist Active TV again, and since this would be on Ten, this might be a brand new team?

This makes me me hopeful. And it wouldn't be the first TAR international off-shoot to change hosts. As I don't know who that is, if he's more expressive than Grant, I'd call that a likely plus.

Yes, you lost the Big Bash League cricket tournament for $1 billion dollars, but you don't WASTE IT on a horse race!  :groan:

Due to them WASTING up to $10 million a year, other shows suffer. Cuts on budget need to be made elsewhere!

If they decide to 'cut the budget' on TAR Aus, legs numbers go DOWN, product placement tasks GOES UP, numbers of teams go DOWN and maybe it will be a DOMESTIC race, instead of INTERNATIONAL...

Pure spec, of course. Nothing I have said here, is confirmed. :)
