Network Ten 2012 Programming Line-Up Featuring Breakfast, Young Talent Time, The Renovators, MasterChef

Network Ten in 2012: Breakfast, Young Talent Time and More

Network Ten held its 2012 programming launch in Sydney last night to unveil its line-up of shows for the coming year. The big question on everyone’s lips was whether it would be bringing back The Renovators after what has so far been a less-than-impressive debut (it is), and whether rumours of a morning show would also prove to be true (it is). Ten is also bringing back Young Talent Time. Here are some more of the highlights:

Breakfast: Ten is introducing a morning show, Breakfast, to rival Sunrise on Seven and Today on Nine. The first of its hosts, Andrew Rochford, said at the launch, “Breakfast radio has taught me a great deal about how people want to start their day. They want the facts, but they want them in a light and entertaining way.” Sounds like the morning version of The 7PM Project, no?

Young Talent Time: Hoping to bank on the success of Glee and talent-finding programs, Ten is bringing back Young Talent Time, the show that introduced us to the likes of Dannii Minogue and Tina Arena. It will be co-produced by Mr. Johnny Young, the show’s original creator, and will be hosted by Rob Mills.

The Renovators: Ten’s chief programming officer, David Mott, said of their latest reality series, “So far the format has underperformed. But, it’s a brand we believe in so we are working directly with [production company] Shine to renovate The Renovators for 2011 and beyond.”

Puberty Blues: Kathy Lette and Gabrielle Carey’s popular coming-of-age book is coming to the small screen and will be filmed in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire.
