The Amazing Race Australia Looks Like It Is In Hiatus
Channel Seven are yet to deny they are not going ahead with third season of The Amazing Race Australia next year, however it starting to not look good for the show that has been nominated for an International Emmy award.
On Tuesday SEVEN announced their line up for 2013 and The Amazing Race Australia was not on the list. They did announce three new reality shows Celebrity Splash, The Mole and House Rules.
Even thought a casting call for applications was held it looks like the show is dumped. It did not rate as well this year as they would have hoped not helped by scheduling. However it was a damn fine reality show and considering SEVEN are continuing with shows like Dancing With The Stars and Australia’s Got Talent which are stale rather then going with a show that really is better than the US version of the show.
It must come down to cost as both Dancing With The Stars and Australia’s Got Talent are filmed in a studio whereas The Amazing Race Australia is out on a continually moving location, and in these tough times of television this is the priority.
It is extremely disappointing.
