It’s the last night of my son’s trip to Disney World with my mom, brother, & his family. I know he’s had a great time, and I’ve enjoyed the peace & quiet…but I think we’ll all be happy he’s home. But it does mean I’m going to take the evening and catch up on as much TV as possible! On that end, here’s what we’re recommending tonight.
I’m so happy because tonight is the season premiere of MasterChef: Junior. This was a huge hit with me last season. The kids they bring on are amazingly talented…as talented as any of the adults they have on the regular show. These boys and girls—who range from 8 to 14, I think—are really fun to watch because they seem just as confident as the adults yet get so much enjoyment out of it. And the judges are even more fun to watch because they truly just get to let their hair down, so to speak. I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and the crop of kids really blew me away. I can’t wait to see more.
On tonight’s episode, “The Next Generation,” America’s first-ever “MasterChef: Junior,” Alexander Weiss, returns to the kitchen as a special guest. Alexander presents the mystery box challenge, and the 16 junior home cooks will be tasked with preparing impressive dishes using the special guest’s favorite ingredients. The winner of the challenge will have a significant advantage and select which of the judges’ favorite proteins the remaining contestants will prepare in the elimination round. Later, the 12 junior home cooks with the best dishes will advance in the competition.
Meet the new chefs tonight on FOX at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing 19 Kids & Counting, MasterChef Canada, Chopped, Restaurant Redemption, Town of the Living Dead, & Benched.
