Yay! We voted with our remote! Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution was number one for its time slot, beating out all competitors, including the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Over 7.5 million Americans sat down and watched the 9:00 pm EDT episode last Friday on ABC.
From TV By the Numbers:
- Food Revolution beat Dateline by 1 million viewers.
- Food Revolution “emerged as Friday’s definitive #1 TV series telecast in viewers and young adults.”
- Food Revolution “produced ABC’s highest adult 18 – 49 series numbers in the Friday 9:00 – 10:00 pm time period in well over three years ~ since December 29, 2006.”
- Food Revolution was the highest Friday night premiere (returning or new) in more than four years, since February 2006!
This is amazingly good news. Americans have an opportunity to build on what Jamie Oliver and Michelle Obama and thousands of grassroots people have started. Please continue to watch the show and vote with your remote. What would you like to do in your community?
Thanks to @SomMetroMan for showing me the numbers. :-)
