Network TEN has hit the “stop” button on its Download ‘internet clip show’ after just two episodes.
The Mike Goldman, Bree Amer and Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald series was in its second season, hosting video clips packaged together with commentary, competitions and special guests.
It will be replaced by Canada’s Ice Road Truckers effective from this Friday at 7:30pm.
Ten episodes of the show were filmed with the former Big Brother trio earlier this year. But last week it had 526,000 viewers.
The axing is a disappointment to TEN’s struggling Friday line-ups. Earlier this month TV Tonight interviewed Mike Goldman and Bree Amer about the timeslot and difficulty of winning an audience on one of TEN’s weakest nights.
TV Tonight: “Channel TEN are in a climate of taking things off air quickly if they’re not working. What if I was to say to you they played the show for three weeks and then took it off?”
Mike Goldman: “That’s not gonna happen, because it’s an awesome show! It’s not boring, it’s fun. I’ve got a copy of the first episode I played to a stack of kids the other day they p*****d themselves. Absolutely loved it. So I’d be very surprised.
Bree Amer: We’re pretty lucky to have a pretty good fanbase as well, through Big Brother.
Friday Night Live won Goldman, Amer and Fitzgerald ‘Best Action Show’ at the Kids Choice Awards.
TEN is yet to announce its plans for the remaining 8 episodes.
