Brook Hall, Seven Network Scheduler said tv tonight time is an important consideration with the network looking to produce shorter seasons.

“From 2015 to 2018, we had house rules and MKR which together had 100 episodes. When you rate and people watch, I can see why you would do that. So I can understand why Chef Where The block are 50 or more episodes.
One thing I can say about MKR (2022), we cut it into a third. When we took over The voice we cut it in half. We keep this philosophy because it puts you in a position of strength,” he said.

“If you have 10 marks of 10 to 15 episodes, if one or two drop, that’s fine.

“One thing we learned was that we became too dependent on two shows. James (Warburton, CEO) wants lots of powerful weapons, not one or two where you make yourself vulnerable.
