Nine (AU) Renewal and Cancellation Wrap
Generating interest mainly because Andrew Denton’s production company Zapruder’s Other Films is putting it together.
Australian Film Institute Awards
In Their Footsteps
Panic At Rock Island
It has already aired in New Zealand, and hasn’t drawn the best of reviews.
The Politically Incorrect Parenting Show
US show on cable network Showtime starring Matt le Blanc. Was recently renewed for a SECOND SEASON.
Australia’s Funniest Home Videos
A mainstay on Channel Nine for many years, with it having found its home on Saturday nights. Now in its 21st season, with its fourth hosted by Shelley Craft.
The Farmer Wants a Wife
Ratings haven’t been spectacular, but it should receive a seventh season, given Nine’s lack of a huge amount of hit shows.
Week 1: 891,000 (2nd in timeslot)
Week 2: 887,000 (2nd in timeslot)
Week 3: 786,000 (2nd in timeslot)
Week 4: 925,000 (2nd in timeslot)
On the 5th of March, it was renewed for a seventh season.
The Footy Show AFL
Maintains quite strong ratings in its city of Melbourne, however, this is largely dependent on whether Sam Newman remains part of the show.
The Footy Show NRL
Millionaire Hot Seat
Crime Investigation Australia
Royal Prince Alfred
This Is Your Life
The third season in 2010 was a modest success, but it would need to at least match those ratings to guarantee it a fourth under new host Scott Cam.
Top Gear Australia
Rescue: Special Ops
This is Your Life
Though it debuted well with its latest incarnation helmer by Eddie McGuire, you can’t take too much out of its first performance. Nevertheless, it remains “Looking Good”. However, it is almost certain to drop, as you have to factor in the Jackman-factor- as it’s known in the industry- for Week 1.
Week 1: 1,043,000 (2nd in timeslot) [LOOKING GOOD]
Week 2: 774,000 [50/50]
Not quite in the Danger zone, but it has a one-way ticket there at the moment. It needs a big-name celebrity to jump-start it.
Week 3: 796,000
No sign of future episodes.
Hey Hey It’s Saturday
Average ratings, high cost… sounds like a recipe for disaster. Almost like a similar situation which arose just over 10 years ago.
