:lol: Unfortunately I do know this to be true for some people who tuned in to last series' TGAU, didn't see what the fuss was about and now associate anything called Top Gear to be related to the show they watched. Quite daft I know, but the way Channel Nein have been flogging the TopGear logo around I can't blame people for getting confused.I wouldn't mind betting that some of this decline is the result of people not willing to risk tuning into Top Gear, only to find they have committed to watching Top Gear Australia instead.
True,the advanced guides published on April 1st had a movie on next tuesdayWhat a ridiculous article.
The weeks that the show has been moved out of prime time are the Easter non-ratings period.
Nine might have to bring back TG.Last nights movie rated 100,000 less than last weeks TG repeat.They've finally caught the Ch 9 moving schedule disease: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/entertainment/tv-radio/top-gear-booted-from-prime-time-after-dismal-ratings/story-e6frf9ho-1226039140633
For anyone outside of Australia, it's not a disease that a show recovers from... unless the show is bought by another channel.
Nine didn't say Top Gear would be back immediately after Easter - rather:we all know Easter finished many weeks ago. Or did it?
So, Series 17 shown prime-time on Nine in the second-half of the year would meet that, even without any repeats on GO!"Top Gear will return to a prime-time slot some time after Easter," a Nine spokesperson says.
