Fox’s MasterChef Junior will return for an eighth season with new judge Daphne Oz. Oz will replace Christina Tosi on the judges’ panel, joining chefs Gordon Ramsay and Aaron Sanchez to crown the next winner in the new season.
Faced with low-ratings, Fox is pulling Utopia from Tuesdays effective immediately. The reality series will continue to air on Fridays. Utopia‘s regular time slot was 8 p.m. Tuesday, with a second original airing on Friday for the first six weeks. MasterChef Junior, which was supposed to succeed Utopia on Fridays will now do the same on Tuesdays starting Nov. 4.
Gordon Ramsay’s fifth series at the broadcast network has been performing well on Fridays, scoring some of the biggest DVR boosts in reality programming.
