What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FOX television network, MasterChef Junior features cooks between the ages of eight and 13. These culinary wiz kids are given the opportunity to showcase their impressive talents and win a title, trophy, and a large cash prize. Host and chef Gordon Ramsay judges with pastry chef Christina Tosi. Season five guests include Michelle Obama, Julie Bowen, Mayim Bialik, Martha Stewart, and Wolfgang Puck, as well as the Muppets.
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of MasterChef Junior averaged a 1.03 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.54 million viewers. Compared to season four, that’s down by 17% in the demo and down by 14% in viewers. Find out how MasterChef Junior stacks up against the other FOX TV shows.
Although its audience grew over the first three seasons, last year, the ratings dropped a bit. Still, it seems MasterChef Junior was renewed through season six on FOX, before season five even premiered. Of course, as a cooking competition with a cash prize, it must be dirt-cheap to produce. Since Graham Elliot left, the only regular cast members are Ramsay and Tosi. Unless the numbers see a serious decline, I think this show, like Ramsay’s others, will be renewed for many years to come.
5/15 update: FOX has confirmed that MasterChef Junior has been renewed for a sixth season. Details here.
