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 ***y 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). 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 :(
I see you watching me watching you :)

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.

TBH the Kiwis can go away and do their own one if they really want it! :sab :box: Season 4 with 11 Australian teams plz, srynotsry. :grins:
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.

Change TAR Australia to TAR Australasia or TAR Oceania, that way New Zealand citizens can involved the race.
TAR25: The best HD season since TAR18.
TARAS3/UB2 Potential Contestant:
Kym & Alli / Shelly & Nici (25), Hayley & Blair (26), Tanner & Josh / Denise & James Earl / Tiffany & Krista (27)

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.

Good catch. Strange that it would get reposted now. I guess you can remove it since it's old news about TAR France not TAR Australia.

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:

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!
