Hello everyone,

my name is Rifki and I am from Indonesia. I am a newcomer here. I logged in here because I am currently interested in TV broadcasting (especially TV show franchises).

In my first post, I am going to discuss about Reality singing competition in Australian Televisions

based on what I observe and analyze, I 've got an interesting fact that each of the top 3 TV channels in Australia (Seven, Nine, and Ten) has their own singing competition programs. Here they are:

  • Seven Network has The X Factor (Australia)
  • Nine Network has The Voice (of Australia)
  • Network Ten had Australian Idol (now it's cancelled).

Thank God, Australian channels are not greedy by letting each channel have each show (unlike my country, Indonesia, where these three shows are televised on the same channel, i.e. RCTI)

I hope that Ten will bring back Australian Idol so that these 3 channels can provide colorful choices of singing competition.

I hope that these 3 shows can air in the same period in the same timeslot, so that we can know which show is preferred by most Australians.

I think that's enough.

Thank you.

An interesting first post.

I personally do not watch this type of show but it will be interesting to see the discussion unfold.

by the way,which show is your favorite? and why?

my favorite: currently The Voice, because:
  • There is no upper age limit (same as The X Factor)
  • The four musicians commenting to the contestants are called the 'Coaches', rather than the traditional 'Judges'
  • Each coaches has the same chance to get a contestant (if they push the button)
  • The contestants are judged based solely on their vocal prowess

but, there are things that I don't like in US (and maybe Australian) version(s) of The Voice, i.e.

[*] in the US version, they (the producers) don't allow vocal groups (only solos and duos are allowed), whereas the original Dutch version allows vocal groups (the 5th season's winner of 'The Voice of Holland' is a vocal group). I hope that the Australian version allows vocal group.

Hi and welcome to TVAus.

I don't watch any of those shows. I'm over singing/talent shows.

I can't be bothered with them anymore - but I do like other reality shows.
Do you get any of the British ones? One of my all time favorites is Come Dine With Me. It's really funny.
