Australian Idol To Be “Rested” For A Year

Australian Idol

In nonsurprising news, Australian Idol will rested for 2010 according to the Daily Telegraph..

Even though the show had been announced in the Channel Ten 2010 line up, it was always unlikely it was going to go ahead.  As I suggested in a previous blog post that Channel Ten did not want to kill it off last year at a time they were making the positive announcements of the next year’s programming.

This season’s finale only garnered 1.4 million viewers.

Dicko confirmed he has not renewed his contract and is looking around for other TV projects.

Though hopefully it will be back bigger and better in 2011 as Ten has asked Fremantle to think about ways to re-launch it.

Yeah the new format really didn’t work, if anything it damaged the show.

Hopefully a year off will ensure they can bring it back with a new cast and talent.
