Amanda Keller has blamed The Project for far less viewers of her show The Living Room which is ending after 10 seasons.

The Living Room will air its final episode on November 25 on Network 10 at 7.30pm with Keller expressing her disappointment at the show ending.

She however said there is still hope for it returning but blamed the slot in which the show airs – right after The Project.

“I admire Channel 10 that they’ve stuck with The Project for so long,” she told TV Tonight.

“I admire that they’ve decided to do their evenings differently. But it does mean that if your show’s on at 7:30 it’s really hard to be compared to other shows.”

Keller went on to compare The Living Room to competing show Better Homes & Gardens and Gardening Australia, explaining that they get more viewers due to the strong viewership on their news programs.

“We’re up against Better Homes & Gardens, Gardening Australia and we do our best to hold our own in that capacity,” she continued.

“I love that it’s a lifestyle night. But you know, they come off a rating of 900,000 from the news or something.

“It’s harder for any Channel 10 show at 7:30. So I’m grateful that we had 11 years.

“I think that we deserved a higher rating and I wish more people had seen us, but the people who do watch us are rusted-on, loyal fans who are wondering, like we are, what’s going on here?”

She went on to thank the loyal fans for their support and said they will be working “really hard” to come back.

“Thank you for your support. I’ve never worked on a show that has really hit people in the feels like The Living Room has, and I’ve loved that response,” she said.

“Everywhere I go, people tell me how much they love this show. They talk about Miguel, Chris and Barry. I’ve never ever had that and I don’t take that lightly. I will never forget how much I love hearing how people love this show. And I hope we get to do that again.

“Thank you for your loyalty. We’re working really hard to come back again.”
