Finales are looming for My Kitchen Rules and The Block which will mean early evenings are about to get a shake up on commercial networks. In theory anyway.
The Block has its auction next Tuesday April 28. Blind Freddy can see the 90 minute TBA sitting in Nine’s schedule for Wednesday 29th will be the season finale. That would suggest Reno Rumble as a starter for Monday May 4th, following plenty of Logie night promotion. This year’s Voice season isn’t expected for some time yet.
Meanwhile MKR is now entering its finals having settled on its Top 5 teams. But first it is insisting on (yet another) lap of the country with its ‘Ultimate instant restaurants.’ Final teams include Drasko and Bianca (WA), Eva and Debra (WA), Will and Steve (NSW), Jac and Shaz (QLD) and Ash and Camilla (VIC). There’s still no word if the finale will go head to head with the Logie Awards (it did not last year) or in the days thereafter.
That mystery is giving TEN some grief as it awaits a launch for MasterChef Australia, with its current schedule lacking a compelling stripped format, and no premiere yet declared.
Tellingly in the week of May 3rd TEN has scheduled episodes of Gold Coast Cops, Bondi Rescue, David Attenborough plus Modern Family repeats, but none have synopses -suggesting they may well be red herrings.
But MasterChef could prove to be fortuitous for TEN as Nine and Seven go head to head with renovation shows, as Reno Rumble takes on House Rules.
Time will tell for all.
