I wouldn't say tcsh lives in a different niche than bash.
Obviously, Perl and shellscript have a large overlap, but Perl is suited for many programming tasks where shellscript would be a terrible idea, and Perl is pretty far from suitable as an interactive shell. Attempts to create a Perl-based shell, like Zoidberg, haven't really attracted any users that aren't hardcore Perl lovers.
