Re: The ratings. You know why? It's on at the same time as America's Got Talent. But the first two episodes still got #1 for the week barely.
AGT- love the current season but I like TARCAN better. :grins:

When you are up against tough competition, you promote your show MORE not LESS.  This lack of publicity is mystifying.

I don't know what's going through the heads of TPTB at CTV recently. Like last month they cancelled Canada AM, a popular long-time morning show, with one day's notice, then quickly announced a replacement morning show with younger hosts. Basically trying to appeal to a demographic that nowadays predominantly watches shows online, anyway.

This did not go over well with the public.

I've learned a lot of Canada from watching this show but aren't  they going to run out of places sooner or later before they start reusing locations?
I would prefer more international legs since the quality is better than US. (way better now)

I disagree. The American show is MUCH better than the Canadian one!

In early seasons, YES, but recent seasons, NO. But yeah, it's your opinion so I respect your opinion.  :)
I only care about female team to win or final 3!

What I like seeing is how challenging some of the tasks are. Just getting a clue can mean a climb up a zillion steps or a long run...they work them hard for every bit of info.

Makes for a very interesting and challenging race.   More difficult than US sometimes.

While the teams that have gone out were likeable, I'm quite pleased with this top 6.

Not only is at least one woman guaranteed to finally win, but the western teams doing so well is a nice change from the latter half of the past seasons always being Ontario-dominated (the California/LA of Canada).

4 of the 6 are western teams, and Steph & Kristen are the only Ontarians left standing.

What an amazing Top 6 indeed, everyone is likable which is something that I've haven't seen in recent US seasons.

For the next season, TAR Canada needs to travel for 90% overseas. All these small cities are bottom of these barrel choices. All the awesome places in Canada have been shown. The purpose has ran its course and now need to embrace the rest of the world.

Tell that to some of the casuals :lol: They apparently like it this way, and it shows in the ratings, the domestic episodes typically see slightly higher viewership. Possibly one of last season's weakest legs, Sudbury, was somehow one of their top rated ever.

We'll probably find out in finale week if it even gets renewed, that's when they've always announced it, but who knows. This has kinda felt like a "swan song season" at times with the way CTV has been underpromoting it. Same happened with Australia 3.

I really hope it gets renewed. Casting and leg designs make this show one-of-a-kind.
I do question why they give up promoting this show especially on a great cast/season. On a mediocre cast I could understand.
