Gone: Trouble in Paradise
There's trouble for Nine's Trouble in Paradise, dumped after just three episodes.
Nine has yanked its new travel story series off air after just three episodes.
Across its three weeks the show managed 1.16m / 1.09m and 871,000 viewers. Its lead in from Getaway last night was 1.21m.
Last night Nine lost its all-important Thursday night to Seven. But all the networks took a hit with SBS screening the Ashes series and managing a 14% share.
The Footy Show plummeted to 785,000, most of which went to the AFL edition. The NRL version slumped to an appalling 138,000 in Sydney. It continues to be immune from any axe because of Nine’s NRL branding and it is known to be a favourite of David Gyngell’s.
Trouble in Paradise wasn’t a poorly produced show, so Nine probably picked the wrong format or should never have slated it after Getaway. It replaces it with new eps of 20 to 1, now set to air twice a week.
