Series background and info
Gogglebox Australia is an Australian localized adaptation of the hit eponymous British series. The show is narrated by Jo Van Es, produced by Shine Australia, Studio Lambert and All3Media International and has been on the air since 2015. Gogglebox Australia premiers on subscription network The Lifestyle Channel, and debuts on Network Ten one day later. The current fourth series has premiered on August 24, 2016 on Foxtel’s The Lifestyle Channel and on TEN on August 25, 2016.
The most outspoken and avid television viewers provide commentary on a variety of currently broadcast programs from the comfort of their very own sofas. Among the viewers there are housemates, families with and without children, friends of various ages and backgrounds. The same 11 groups of viewers continue to be featured in series 4 exchanging their diverse opinions on the current television programs.
Mixed reception and future prospects
The 4.8/10 IMDb rating corresponds to the viewer reviews that are extremely polarized, leaning towards negative. The series debut ratings in 2015 totaled 779,000 between the two networks, with an unexpectedly small share of the audience located in the Metro 5 area. Most critics consider it a flop, yet there are enough loyal fans for the fourth series to have scored an early renewal. In 2016 the program won a Logie Award for Best Factual Program, but It is curious the success of Gogglebox UK has not yet been repeated in either the US/Canadian or the Australian version of the series. However, Australia is not quitting on the program. Stay tuned for further announcements and find out whether there will indeed be a fifth series of Gogglebox Australia.
