A sign of the competition ramping up no doubt, but TV Tonight hears whispers Seven may hold back Home and Away for several weeks in order to screen My Kitchen Rules at 7pm.
That would give Seven the jump (presumably) on Married at First Sight returning at 7:30pm Monday January 28.
Last year MAFS had several ratings wins over Seven’s long-running cooking contest. Would Nine consider holding back A Current Affair to go head to head…?
It would also hit 10 hard which launched I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here to strong numbers in its bold mid-January launch.
The start of the 2019 TV year means war.
Update: Confirmed for 7pm Monday January 28.
