What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FOX television network, the MasterChef TV show features award-winning Chef Gordon Ramsay, acclaimed chef Aarón Sánchez, and renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich as judges. Season 12 brings together 20 memorable and talented all-star contestants — including two MasterChef Junior veterans now competing as adults. They all get a second chance to prove they have what it takes, facing the toughest challenges to date, all while being held to the highest standards in the series’ history. The contestants will face the challenge of feeding hungry members of the Coast Guard, demonstrate their skills in a vegan dish challenge, travel to Horsetown USA (Norco, CA) to feed cowboys, and compete in the fan-favorite restaurant takeover challenge at Wolfgang Puck’s “Spago.” Only one home cook will ultimately claim the MasterChef title, the $250,000 grand prize, and a complete state-of-the-art kitchen.
Season 12 Ratings
The 12th season of MasterChef averaged a 0.41 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.22 million viewers. Compared to season 11, that’s down by 29% in the demo and down by 12% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
