Herald Sun said:TOP Gear Australia has been dropped from the Channel Nine schedule.
The show will go to air as scheduled on Tuesday, but the remaining three episodes in the series will be shelved until later in the year owing to poor ratings.
The move comes after dismal ratings for the Aussie version of the hit UK car series.
Earlier this week Top Gear Australia had a measly 439,000 viewers nationally.
Top Gear Australia is hosted by Shane Jacobson, Ewen Page and Steve Pizzati.
This is the second time Top Gear Australia has failed. The series was first screened on SBS but went to Nine when they bought the rights to the UK version at the end of 2009.
So much for an Australian Version...
