2013-02-26_0934If it’s Monday it must be another stellar night for My Kitchen Rules, and it was -at a huge 2.18m.

Ali and Samuel cooked up an impressive meal for their guests but all the focus was on feuding females -with judges Pete and Manu failing to intervene during heated arguments as the cameras kept on rolling.

  1. As long as the knives remained on the table why should anybody get involved, especially the judges as it their role to do nothing but judge the contestants presentations and that they abide by the cooking rules etc, for anything else that is the EP’s role

    I am much more concerned when Pete and Manu taste and comment on each course before the other contestants have tasted their servings, ( they put words and pre-conceptions in others mouths and minds).

    In fact I feel that the chefs should only hear feedback from their peers after they have tasted each course.

    Pete and Manu should not comment at all till judgement tally time, they could still have some casual banter with the chefs, but only ask about how they prepared each course and what problems they experienced if any, and if and how they would do things differently next time etc.

  2. I know that the lead-in to shows do help, but i just thought that Lateline and Ten’s Late News gap would be closer than what it would be. Good to see those numbers for ABC. Ten just didnt rate at all last night in anything.

  3. @Darcey09.
    Say it as often as you like, but it was TEN’s second highest rated show on Monday.
    And if they got rid of it, what would they replace it with ?
    I’m glad that one of our commercial channels produces a decent news/current affairs program.
