TV Quick Hits: ‘MasterChef’ season 7 premiere date; ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ teaser; Ted Cruz on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

For all of you amateur home-cooks out there (or at least some of you who like to watch them on TV), we’ve got some more news right now regarding the return of “MasterChef”: An official premiere date for the seventh season!
