EXCLUSIVE: Nine sources have confirmed Family Food Fight will not be screening this year.
The show was previously included in Nine’s 2019 Upfronts, but that was ahead of the second season debut.
Ratings for 2018 were down on 2017, but the format has proven a success for Endemol Shine, which developed the series with Nine. International versions were greenlit in Mexico, Switzerland, Denmark, Argentina, Portugal and a rare network pickup by ABC in the US.
The series filled a month in Nine’s calendar year after The Block wrapped in October.
Still expected this year are Australian Ninja Warrior, The Block, Doctor Doctor, Seachange, Love Island, Hamish & Andy’s “Perfect” Holiday, This Time Next Year, and Paramedics.
Nine sources told TV Tonight their calendar was full but has not ruled out more Family Food Fight in the future.
