MasterChef Isn't Gordon's Best But It's Good Enough
Gordon Ramsay lifts any show he is on. While he’s not the only judge that oversees the contestants (as Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianich are also involved), he’s easily the most famous, and his praise is the one that home cooks wait to hear.
While at times some shows can make their stories a little too sappy, MasterChef (Fox, 9pm) did a great job in season 2 of balancing out who the cooks are with how they actually perform on the stage. Sometimes, the unlikable people (see Christian from last season) make it far, but you at least know the person enough to know you don’t want to root for them.
