Amanda Keller, the host of The Living Room, opened up about her feelings about the show’s sudden departure in an interview.
She noted that it had been an uphill battle to attract viewers since it was aired right after The Project. The show will be officially off-air after 10 seasons on Network 10.
According to the network, the show is being “rested” for 2023. However, Keller noted that she wasn’t getting excited about the possibility of it returning to TV.
She said that the producers were actually working on a new twist for the show, and it might even return in the following year.
As she noted, she was worried that the show might not be able to continue due to the nature of TV, which constantly changes.
She said that she and her co-hosts, Chris Brown, Barry Dubois, and Miguel Maestre, would all be leaving the show next year. This would make it a “big ask” to bring them back together for a new season.
She also opened up about her feelings about the show, which has been a part of Network 10’s schedule for a long time.
She said that she admired the network for sticking with The Project, but she noted that the show’s lackluster ratings had made it hard for The Living Room to compete.
She noted that the show had been up against programs such as Gardening Australia and Better Homes & Gardens, and it was hard for The Living Room to compete against these two.
She also said that it was hard for the network to keep up with The Project, as it had lost a lot of its on-air talent. Among the individuals who have left the show are Lisa Wilkinson, Carrie Bickmore, and Peter Helliar.
On the Jonesy & Amanda show on WSFM 101.7, Keller joined her co-hosts, Barry Dubois, Chris Brown, and Miguel Maestre, to talk about what fans can expect from tonight’s grand final.
Brown said that it was strange that Ten would stop the show, as the members of The Living Room were the most lucky people in the world.
The show, she said, was a “ripper.” The last segment of the show featured the four of them going back 11 years, and Brown even went the blub.
