Cooking up a treat
TUESDAY marks a real test of the TV cooking show. Channel 10’s MasterChef Australia moves ever closer to its grand finale. Channel 9’s Great Australian Bakeoff screens its grand final showdown (8.30pm, Nine, NBN) where it faces off in a timeslot showdown against Channel 10’s new entrant Recipe to Riches (8.30pm, Ten, Ten SC, report Page 27). Channel 7, meanwhile, pulls something different out of the hat with a magic special. Cosentino – The Magic, The Mystery, The Madness (7.30pm, Seven, Prime7) was filmed at The Palms at Crown, Melbourne, and features some dangerous stunts – rehearsals for one landed the Australian magician in hospital. Seven hopes the special rates well and viewers stay tuned for Winners & Losers at 8.30pm.
