Bumped: Top Gear
Blame Chris Evans for the latest bomb as Nine moves quickly on struggling revamp.
Nine has moved swiftly on Top Gear after a dismal reception last night in Sydney and Brisbane.
The show drew a combined total of 161,000 in 2 cities, including Nine flopping from first to fourth place in its Sydney timeslot.
Nine has quickly bumped the series to GO! from next week, to be replaced by first-run RBT in Sydney and Brissy.
Viewers in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth will still see the series premiere episode tonight (just so they can see how bad Chris Evans is) but then it’s a goner. Next week those cities will endure World’s Best Commercials in the Thursday timeslot. The upside is Footy Show will be back to 8:30 in all cities.
Top Gear will now air on GO! 8pm Mondays from next week.
