Channel 10 cuts another show due to ratings crisis, while Channel Seven contemplates rescuing unexpected series

Channel 10 has decided to axe yet another popular show amid ongoing concerns for the network’s future 

Following the cancellation of The Bachelors and The Masked Singer, Daily Mail Australia can reveal that Gladiators will not be making a return.

The decision comes as Channel 10 continues to grapple with declining ratings and an exodus of viewers.

Despite their success in the UK, both Gladiators and recently-canned The Traitors struggled to find a foothold on Network 10. 

The Australian reboot of Gladiators, produced by Warner Bros., launched with high hopes but failed to sustain its initial viewership.

Hosted by Beau Ryan and Liz Ellis, the show drew a substantial summer audience of 395,000 metro viewers for its premiere.

Unfortunately, the numbers plummeted to just 196,000 for the second episode.

Critics on social media were quick to point out the lack of crowd presence, comparing it to shows filmed during lockdown, despite it being filmed under normal conditions.

‘It felt like watching an event without any real energy,’ one viewer commented. 

Similarly, The Traitors, a gripping whodunnit series hosted by Rodger Corser and filmed at the historic Robertson Hotel in the NSW Southern Highlands, aired two seasons on Channel 10.

However, a well-placed production insider has disclosed that Channel Seven is now considering commissioning the Endemol Shine Australia series.

An insider revealed, ‘Channel 10 is now deciding to put all their eggs in one basket, planning to roll out not one, but two seasons of Australian Survivor in 2025.’

‘They are putting together a 10th season special as well as an Australia vs USA Survivor all-star showdown which will be screened simultaneously in America and Down Under.’

This strategic shift aims to capitalise on the enduring popularity of Australian Survivor, hoping it will bolster the network’s ratings and bring back loyal viewers.

‘Survivor has consistently performed well for us, and we believe this new approach will reignite audience interest,’ a Channel 10 executive stated.

Both Channel Seven and 10 have been contacted for comment.
