Fox bumps premiere of seventh season of 'Hell's Kicthen' to June 1

Hell's Kitchen premiere will be served up a week earlier than originally scheduled.
Fox has announced that the culinary competition series' seventh season will now debut on Tuesday, June 1 at 8PM ET/PT instead of the network's previously announced June 7 date.
While Hell's Kitchen's seventh season was also previously scheduled to consist entirely of two-hour episodes, Fox also announced that has changed too.
Following the show's one-hour premiere on June 7, Hell's Kitchen will air two-hour episodes in the Tuesdays at 8PM ET/PT timeslot until July 27 -- when it will then begin serving as the lead-in for Gordon Ramsay's new Masterchef reality series.
Masterchef, which will follow a group of wannabe chefs with no food industry experience who are trying to take their kitchen hobby to a professional level, was previously scheduled to air on Thursdays and debut July 29 but will now premiere two days earlier.
It will then continue to air in the Tuesdays at 9PM ET/PT timeslot.
