'Young Talent Time' switched from Sunday night to Friday night on Ten

By
Young Talent Time
Young Talent Time has been pulled from its primetime Sunday night timeslot on Channel Ten.

The Australian reality television show, which was relaunched last year with Rob Mills as host, will move to a Friday 7pm timeslot from March 30, while weight loss show The Biggest Loser will now air on Sunday nights in its place.

Ten's chief programming officer David Mott told the Herald Sun: "As we move through the year we will continue to reinvigorate our Super Sunday line-up and our move this weekend of The Biggest Loser to Sundays at 6.30pm is perfect timing as the competition really takes hold.

"We've built Friday nights as a space for family-friendly entertainment, fun light programming and [it is] now the perfect fit for Young Talent Time as it heads into the big semi-final and final weeks."

The Biggest Loser has reportedly improved in audience ratings since its Nine Network rival Excess Baggage was moved onto a digital channel.

Mills recently said that he thinks Australia needs a show like Young Talent Time because "the whole world is screaming out for more positivity". He also said that the popularity of Australia's Got Talent and The X Factor child stars Jack Vidgen and Reece Mastin proves that people "want to see young kids dancing and singing again".
