Network Seven 2013 Schedule – The Mole Is Back But The Amazing Race
Network Seven announced their line up for the 2013 and it was interesting to see which reality shows are in and which are out.
First there are three new reality shows announced:
HOUSE RULES which is a reality renovation show.
Would you hand over the keys to your house to a bunch of strangers to completely transform your home? It’s state versus state, room versus room in an exciting new renovation series from the makers of My Kitchen Rules. In HOUSE RULES, contestants will put their homes on the line and their skills to the test in a fight for renovation supremacy and a life-changing prize.
CELEBRITY SPLASH which was leaked last week it is a celebrity diving competition sounded trashy but a clip from YouTube looked amusing.
The series will see celebrities perform complicated dives from varying heights with the assistance of professional diving instructors who help each participant with weeks of training. Dives can be from as high as 10-metre boards with increasing levels of complexity, including backflips, somersaults and other gymnastic feats.
THE MOLE – CULTURE CLASH is back. Fans of the show will be excited and it looks like it will have social diversity to make it interesting. Will Grant Bowler be host?
It’s the show where you can’t trust anyone and in 2013 it returns to Seven bigger and better than ever before. In THE MOLE – CULTURE CLASH, the contestants will come from different worlds. With varying socio-economic backgrounds, religions, cultures and beliefs, it’s a sure-fire recipe for conflict and tension as they try to uncover the mole’s identity. Each week, physical and mental tests will divide the competitors as one person among them will knowingly sabotage their quest. That person is the mole.
Returning is My Kitchen Rules with as they described him as “controversial judge” Colin Fassnidge, so clearly he has a certain role to play on the show. It will be interesting to see if there is tension between Manu Feildel and Colin.
The talent shows returning are The X Factor, Dancing With The Stars, and Australia’s Got Talent. It will be very surprising if there are not personnel changes on Australia’s Got Talent.
What is not on the list In shocking news The Amazing Race Australia is not in the release, which could mean it is dumped. However previously this year they had said it has been renewed and a casting call made. This is one of the best reality shows on TV but the ratings were not what they should have been and they must have decided not to stick with it. Will get back to you when I find out.
Also Please Marry My Boy won’t be getting a second season, and Dinner Date which was on last year’s list but had already fallen off the schedule.
For those into factual TV BORDER SECURITY, THE FORCE, SURVEILLANCE OZ and HIGHWAY PATROL will also be back.
