David Mott says of The Renovators, “So far the format has underperformed. But it’s a brand we believe in so we are working directly with Shine to renovate The Renovators for 2011 and beyond.”
A spokewoman said it was too early to say whether there would be new seasons of Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation and Junior MasterChef in 2012 when the current seasons were only just on air or soon to air. TEN says it is yet to make a decision on whether it will revive It’s A Knockout.
Still to come this year are Class of 2011, Rush, Recruits: Paramedics and Good News World, from the makers of Good News Week and the AFL Grand Final.
