TV3 has dropped a number of much-hyped imports from its Sunday night lineup in the face of a TVNZ "powerhouse" headed by MasterChef and other local shows.
Modern Family, Grand Designs Australia, House and The Good Wife have all been put on hold by TV3.
The shows were competing with the successful MasterChef New Zealand and the current affairs show Sunday.
A spokeswoman for TV3 initially said the move was "based on performance" but later said the network was always going to show movies over Easter weekend.
