Renewed: Junior Masterchef, Undercover Boss Australia.
Two local reality shows on TEN get the thumbs up to return in 2011.
TEN has announced new seasons for Junior MasterChef and Undercover Boss Australia.
It follows good ratings returns for both shows.
Junior Masterchef premiered to over 2.2m and last night took 1.5m viewers. Despite its season being interrupted by the Commonwealth Games it seems set for a strong finish tonight.
Undercover Boss Australia has generated good word of mouth and averaged 1.27m viewers. It will be a challenge for producers to keep the “undercover” secret intact from employees filmed for the second season.
David Mott, Chief Programming Officer, Network TEN said, “TEN has enjoyed a terrific year with
introducing a number of new domestic series to market.
“Once again the audience supports our belief in telling true Australian stories and we thank our production partners in Shine Australia and Southern Star on delivering first class productions.
“With this announcement and more to come, our program line-up of proven domestic hits and the best year from our international studio partners, strongly positions us for the year ahead.”
Last week TEN also renewed drama series Rush for 2011 but confirmed talent show Don’t Stop Believing was cancelled.
