    THE BLACKLIST is one of the hottest shows around today and it is a pity TV3 gave it such a poor lead in. One wonders why they chose to put their local food show against MASTERCHEF NEW ZEALAND. A lost opportunity here.

    • roger

      I agree? Were they really that optimistic that it could compete against it? I would watch it if it wasn’t on at the same time as Masterchef.
