The Amazing Race Australia Is Back
Channel SEVEN announced tonight that the Emmy winning The Amazing Race Australia is back in 2014. This is great news as the first two seasons were highly entertaining and well produced television.
The US version of the show is currently screening on SEVEN Thursday nights at 10.30pm.
As expected there was no sign of The Mole.
Also SEVEN are commissioning a show called Bringing Sexy Back which is a makeover series which will “transform ordinary Australians into something extraordinary”. Apparently we should expect amazing transformations. It sounds very similar to 10 Years Younger In Ten Days which was hosted by Sonia Kruger.
Other reality TV shows returning in 2014 are House Rules, My Kitchen Rules, The X Factor and Dancing With The Stars. In the observational reality genre The Force, Border Security, Highway Patrol are back. Also Outback Truckers will return on 7MATE aka the blokes channel.
SEVEN showed with House Rules by not panicking when it started with low ratings and by having confidence they had made a good show that people will watch. In the end they did with over 1.5 million watching the finale. They are expecting higher ratings in season two.
