Things are looking dimmer and dimmer for a possible season 3 of The Amazing Race Philippines. Since this post almost a year ago, TV5’s fortunes have only gotten worse after Viva Entertainment basically milked them out of undeserved money by giving the network two horrible programs that couldn’t even attract half the audience tuning into Filipino-dubbed Japanese and American series, also on TV5.
So Viva is now mercifully out of the picture and TV5 is left picking up the pieces left over. The network is very much on the verge of falling off the cliff. Most of its talent and staff have left the network for various new opportunities while those left at TV5 are valiantly fighting the good fight. That is all while there is an obvious lack of competent leadership at the top of the network.
It’s very sad really. Not just because The Amazing Race Philippines is basically dead. But it’s also sad to see a promising network just collapse.
Anyway, everything else in this post is still relevant to the overall Amazing Race franchise. So I’ll leave it here. And despite Amazing Race US also on the verge of death, at least other international franchises are doing well. =)
