Monday TV Wrap: MasterChef Sizzles For 10, Premieres To Over 1M & Tops All Key Demos

10’s MasterChef has debuted to 1.23 million Australians, according to OzTAM metro numbers.

This is up a whopping 70 per cent on 2019’s launch episode which premiered to an okayish 715,000 viewers.

This season sees the return of 24 much-loved contestants and three all new judges following the shock exit of Gary, Matt and George last year. It was always going to be a gamble for 10, and it appears, for now, that gamble has paid off.

ViacomCBS Australia and New Zealand Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President, Beverley McGarvey, said: “We are so pleased and excited with how Australians have responded to the return of MasterChef Australia.

“Twelve seasons in and MasterChef Australia is still loved by so many people. Food is a universal theme, particularly in times like these, and our show has always been about the food.

“A big thanks to the massive team, on and off screen who put this show together, thanks to our brand new judges, Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen, our brilliant returning contestants and to our wonderful guest judge Gordon Ramsay.”

10’s MasterChef win was enough to knock Nine out of its usual top spot, with 10 coming in at number one across all key demos. In primary channel, 10 did 20.7 per cent, Seven did 16.7 per cent, ABC did 12.9 per cent and SBS did 3.8 per cent.

Here’s how the rest of the night went.
