During the 2014-15 season, FOX ran two cycles of the MasterChef Junior TV show and both were up in the ratings. Will the numbers continue to climb this time around or will they fall? Cancelled or renewed for a fifth season? Stay tuned.
On MasterChef Junior, cooks between the ages of eight and 13 are given the opportunity to showcase their culinary talents and win a title, trophy, and a large cash prize. Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot, and Christina Tosi serve as judges and mentors.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
