This past Sunday’s episode of The Next Food Network Star generated unprecedented ratings for Food Network and was the most highly rated telecast in the network’s history.
I guess the battle Iron Chef between Giada and Rachael drops down to #2.
Garnering almost 2.6 million total viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, the eighth installment of the program tied as the highest rated ad-supported prime telecast of the night among Adults 25-54.
The series has significantly increased total viewership numbers for the premiere in each season that it has aired, season three being no exception with 4.7 million total viewers tuning, a 21 percent increase over season two.
