Seven has yanked Australian Spartan from its schedule after just two episodes.
My Kitchen Rules returns to 7pm Sunday, followed by Sunday Night.
The move follows disappointing ratings for the big budget series, scoring just 524,000 viewers last night. It debuted a week ago with 816,000.
Updated: Seven has advised the show will return in two weeks, during Easter non-ratings.
Angus Ross Director of Programming said, “Despite the best efforts of a great team on both sides of the camera, the show has not done the job it needed to do in its current time slot.
“Australian Spartan will take a two week break, before finding its new home in the prime-time schedule, in line with the kick off 2018 AFL season.
“The series will return with fifteen teams entering the Spartan arena to compete in the Finals Deciders shows leading to the ultimate test of endurance, strength and teamwork and $150,000 in prize money.”
