DEBUT WITH TWO HELPINGS A WEEK BEGINNING

FOX summer will be hotter than ever when HELL’S KITCHEN and MASTERCHEF debut with a two-night season premiere event on Monday, June 4 and Tuesday, June 5. HELL’S KITCHEN starts cooking Mondays at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT beginning June 4, followed by the season premiere serving of MASTERCHEF (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

In Season Ten of HELL’S KITCHEN, aspiring restaurateurs once again will be put through an intense culinary academy to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win the life-changing grand prize. In Season Three of MASTERCHEF, Chef Gordon Ramsay is joined by restaurateur Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot at the judging panel as they search for America’s best home cook and challenge a new batch of hopefuls by testing their palates, food knowledge and determination to make a mark in the culinary world.

 

As previously announced, So You Think You Can Dance kicks off with a two-hour premiere Thursday, May 24 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The following week, on Wednesday, May 30 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Emmy-nominated hit dance competition series moves into its regular time period.

    No Hotel Hell? Can’t be good…

  • GARebelman

    What the hell happened to Hotel Hell now? :(

  • Bishop

    Unless I’m mistaken Hotel Hell has been moved to “Summer”. No real need to have three Gordon Ramsay shows on at the same time. Hotel Hell will probably air once Hell’s Kitchen and MasterChef end their current seasons.

  • Anthony

    This is what Fox will do with Hotel Hell:

    Fox Fall Friday’s:

    8:00 Hotel Hell
    9:00 Fringe

    Fox Midseason Friday’s:

    8:00 Kitchen Nightmares
    9:00 The Finder

  • Survivor Fan

    I like MasterChef’s airing twice a week. It will do much better than Hotel Hill would have.

  • Columbo

    Can’t wait.

  • Jeff G

    Fox, why must you tease me? They just started running ads claiming Hell’s Kitchen was coming in May. Before that they were running ads claiming Hotel Hell would run in April days before moving it to ???.

  • don

    i see great tv coming lol,i forsee crap in foxs future

  • Jase

    FOX likely wants to wait until the Travel Channel’s ‘Hotel Impossible’ ends before airing ‘Hotel Hell’. Given that both shows have a very similar concept, you can’t blame them for delaying it.

  • FowlScat

    Masterchef is absolute garbage television. The fact they had to photoshop contestants waiting to audition shows any clown with all their fingers and no drastic scarring on their face can be a tv “chef” contestant.

  • Ultima

    @Jeff G
    They just started running ads claiming Hell’s Kitchen was coming in May.

    Nonsense, Hell’s Kitchen was never scheduled for a May premiere (and with good cause, why premeire on Memorial Day?). They just changed which hour it airs during on Mondays.

  • Ultima

    Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef should finish around the final week of July. After that, they’ll probably go with Hotel Hell and KN repeats (or another new reality series?) on Monday and sitcom repeats on Tuesday until fall premieres.

  • ToXiX

    @Anthony

    You’re clueless if you don’t clearly see that The Finder will not be returning.

  • Tested

    Word to the affiliates is that Fox canceled Hotel Hell. No reason given. No indication that it was just move.. the word was “canceled”

  • Ultima

    @Jeff G

    It turns out that FOX did have both Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef scheduled on Tuesday, 29 May.

    Sorry about the “nonsense” stuff!
