While Cablevision subscribers have been without the Food Network since New Year’s Day, enough people who did have access to the channel tuned in on Sunday night for Super Chef Battle: An Iron Chef America Event and Worst Cooks in America to give the network its highest rated, most watched night in Food Network history.
According to the network’s press release:
There was definitely a bigger interest in Super Chef Battle, as 7.6 million viewers tuned in to see it (on a total viewer 2+ basis). Worst Cooks’ series premiere took in four million viewers, dropping down some from it’s lead-in, but still holding up pretty well. Apparently, more people prefer to see good cooks cook than bad cooks cook, but there are still plenty of people out there who love a good train-wreck.
And for those of you in the New York Tri-State area who, due to Cablevision no longer carrying the Food Network, missed the Super Chef Battle, below is part of a press release that contains information on the local stations that will be airing an encore broadcast of Super Chef Battle: An Iron Chef America Event this Sunday night.
