UPDATED: Fox’s reality series MasterChef is getting a reprieve. Originally, Fox had planned to air the cooking show Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 PM, an hour earlier than last summer. But after MasterChef plummeted 33% year-to-year in its season premiere on Monday and only went up a tenth from that in its Tuesday premiere last night, the network is shifting the series to 9 PM where it aired last year behind Hell’s Kitchen. The move on Monday will be made right away, with a MasterChef rerun airing at 8 PM, leading into a new MasterChef starting next week. Hell’s Kitchen, which was originally slated to premiere on July 19 and air Tuesdays at 9 PM, following MasterChef, will now air on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 PM, kicking off its new season with a two-night premiere on July 18 and July 19 when MasterChef will move to the Tuesday 9 PM slot. Starting the week of July 18, Fox will air identical Hell’s Kitchen/MasterChef lineups on both Monday and Tuesday. Fox also has scheduled the recently ordered antiques-appraisal reality show Buried Treasure. It will air Wednesdays 8 PM, starting on Aug. 24, after So You Think You Can Dance finishes its season. Here is the updated Fox summer schedule:
