Airdate: MasterChef: The Professionals
MasterChef: The Professionals will have the jump on My Kitchen Rules.
TEN’s reality series will launch at 7:30pm on Sunday January 20, before the Australian Open ends.
That’s three weeks before the start of 2013 ratings (February 10) and before Seven can kick off its fourth season of its hit cook-off.
While some nights may get swamped by Aussies competing in the Australian Open, it also gives TEN a chance to lock in an audience before its own show can launch, and provides a serious alternative for those not into sport.
The show begins with a 90 minute premiere with 60 minute eps to air on Monday and Tuesday in the first week.
