Could this NEW Reality Show mean the end of TAR?
« on: February 02, 2019, 11:02:16 PM »
I came across this image. Could it be a new show to replace TAR?

TARCAN deserves to be the only North American edition anyhow.

Remember that TAR creators also did The Quest....one new show does NOT in any way mean TAR is being replaced.

There was in interview with Kelly Kahl (CBS scheduler) a few days ago where they asked about the state of CBS reality programming and how they're adding 2 new ones this year. He basically said they have stable performers right now which allows them to experiment with these new shows to try to find the next generation of reality shows for the network.

So they are certainly looking for new reality shows as long-term replacements, but they still have to air and perform well to show signs of longevity. Remember how they thought Hunted was going to be their next big hit as well. We should hopefully have a few more seasons of TAR in us (obviously at least 2), so let's just enjoy it while it lasts.

Key word is won. Past tense.
Viewership and ratings have dropped significantly since 24, so there's definitely reason for CBS to consider alternatives. They haven't cancelled TAR yet, and we even have 2 seasons in the can, which is amazing, but they need contingency plans.

There's no comparing the stability (in terms of ratings and viewers) of TAR and Survivor or BB.

There is nothing on the photo to suggest that this show is replacing TAR. We don't even know on which network this show is airing. There isn't a CBS logo on the photo, and CBS rarely does docuseries. Bertram & Elise have done several shows before (Quest, Take the Money & Run, Great Escape, Oprah's Big Give), which didn't air on CBS so they are not limited to one network.

This. All the ad says is that its from the same people of Amazing Race, it does not mean it will air on CBS. Also, the four shows you just mentioned only ran for 1 season.

Donít think TAR will end anytime soon.
We have a chance to go back to two a year.

This is just another show

Also this is on the casting site:

We are currently casting for the season that will film in the Summer of 2019. Filming is approximately 25-30 days.

This show pitch seems like something I would see on cable networks like Travel Channel, definitely not something that would be successful long-term on general broadcast, especially after witnessing the rise and slow dismissal of other 2010 docuseries on CBS like Undercover Boss. This just feels like a lifestyle reality show aimed for to-be-expatriates.

I've been thinking about the longevity of their "big 3". One of the things that got people interested in this lineup was because those shows were a new kind of programming at the turn of the century. Survivor: Borneo and Big Brother 1 were HEAVILY covered in media when it first premiered to a similar status of pro sports. TAR came more or less than a year later, but still within the same attention span to catch onto people. Following CBS up to this incoming two-decade milestone, the floodgates for these strategic and skill competition shows have widely opened as a cost-effective form of entertainment for cable and other channels (American Idol, American Ninja Warrior, The Challenge, RuPaul's Drag Race, Project Runway, etc.), being one of many factors as to why the general audience who did use to watch the originals no longer do.

I think there is still more concepts that can be uncovered and be relatable for general broadcast. It just needs to be gimmicky enough to create a hook for people, but also strong enough to make unique twists and turns for the show along the way to keep the audience. First "concept" I can hint at is that the escape room trend is going nowhere and getting more elaborate as time goes on. Perfect opportunity to add in over-the-top TV flare with this newer kind of game and get people with different interests, goals and lifestyles engaged and auditioning.

It sounds nothing like The Amazing Race, factual reality programming than competitive reality.
