Apparently, even with a proven script, replicating the success of the most beloved automotive show on television isn't as easy as it sounds. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian version of Top Gear has been canceled.
After the initial report, host Steve Pizzati sent out a confirmation via Twitter stating the following:
For those keeping track, Top Gear in the Land of Oz lasted for four seasons spread over two different networks before finally succumbing to poor ratings. There were also six separate presenters used over different time frames, along, of course, with The Stig.
It's true - as of next week, TGA will be on at the special time of not at all. Sorry to the open-minded people that gave it a go and enjoyed!
We can't say that we ever really watched the show, but we're sure at least a few Aussies will miss it. Here's hoping the U.S. version of the series finds enough enough homes to avoid the same fate.
