'GGG: Behind the Games' didn't premiere to 'Tournament of Champions' numbers but, its 2nd episode was up 9% and Guy's shows, while don't get 1M+ viewers every week, get nice and consistent viewers/demos: that's why he's on FN more than 60 hours a week.

Blocks of episodes of GGG will be aired every day this week (April 19-25), in addition to the usual Friday/Saturday marathons of DDD.

Ratings for the finale of the first spring 'Great Food Truck Race' at 967,000 viewers/0.26 demo gave it a 966,000/0.25 average for the 6 episode season, way up from the 701,000/0.21 avg. of the 'Great Food Truck Race: Holiday' but 7% down in viewers and 17% in demo from the last season that aired on Thursday nights (1.05M/0.30 in summer 2018). Given the results, people aren't willing to watch 3 seasons of 'GFTR' a year, especially during the holiday season.

In ratings results for this past week...for the first time in 16 weeks, when ‘Holiday Baking Championship’ topped the weekly ratings, a prime time show was the most watched original program. Since the middle of its current run, ‘Buddy vs Duff,’ which started with severe year-to-year audience/demo declines, has been picking up steam and this past week, it got the numbers it reached on its first season.

‘The Kitchen’, which was the top show for 14 out of the past 15 weeks, wasn’t only beaten by ‘Buddy vs Duff’ but also barely by ‘Pioneer Woman’. It will be interesting to watch the ratings for this week, with the first of the ‘DDD: Takeout’ shows, new episodes of ‘Pioneer Woman: Staying Home’ and ‘The Kitchen: Quarantine Edition’, plus the next to last ‘Buddy vs Duff’ of the season.

The newest installment of ‘The Kitchen: Quarantine Edition’ beat the next to last episode of ‘Buddy vs Duff’ by a small margin. The second episode of ‘Pioneer Woman: Staying Home’ helped daytime to take 3 out of the top 5 most watched shows for the week. Given the fact that it was endlessly promoted among all Discovery networks, the first of three ‘DDD: Take-Out’ episodes, had great but not spectacular ratings Friday night, as also some regular ‘DDD’ reruns got better ratings Sunday afternoon.

As last night's next to last episode of 'Spring Baking Championship' had 1.43 million viewers/0.25 demo, it's expected that this Sunday's 'Buddy vs Duff' finale will get big numbers, against more quarantine 'The Kitchen' & 'Pioneer Woman' shows.

In finale news, the first season of 'Chopped: Sweets' ended last Monday night: its 12 episode season average of 745,000 viewers/0.19 demo makes it, so far, the third lo last least watched new show of the year, on top of the 'Food Network Challenge' revival and 'Vegas Chef Prizefight'.

Four-Episode Series BAKE-AWAY CAMP, With Martha Stewart, Premieres Monday, May 4th at 9pm
 

 

Now that I'm seeing ads for this show every commercial break now. All I can say is no.  It's Food Network's cheap way of doing The British Bakeoff of having the cooks cook outside, but they are too cheap to give them an enclosed tent.  Then we get Martha in her Grand Lady of the Manor role showing off how rich she is.  Mary Berry she's not.  I'll just watch British Bakeoff on Netflix

So is FN just pretending they can’t find actual chefs who are charismatic and would like to have a cooking show? They’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel with this Amy Schumer Learns To Cook show

Well, her husband is a chef. I guess when you're married to a chef, you don't need to know how to cook.

Monday 5/4's season 6’s finale of ‘Spring Baking Championship’ at 1.31 million viewers/0.29 demo was only 4 percent down in viewers and 6% demo from season 5’s (1.37M/0.31 on 5/6/2019). On average, S6 (1.29M/0.28) was even with viewers and 17% down in demo from last year's (1.28M/0.34).

‘Buddy vs Duff’s season 2 finale was down 20% in viewers and a big 28% in demo from S1 (1.86M/0.53 on 4/15/2019). After a weak start, losing a quarter of its audience and a third of its demo, by midseason, the gentler, kinder series picked up steam, ending with 1.33M/0.36, losing 15% in viewers and 20% demo from 2019 (1.57M, 0.45). Audience grew season to season (9.43 to 10.66M), but it was because S2 had 8 episodes, compared to S1’s 6 so, the additional couple episodes only brought about 600,000 viewers per episode, not that good.

Robert Irvine’s ‘Restaurant Impossible’ quarantine special and his ‘Follow that Food’ like pilot called ‘Kitchen Expedition’ bombed Thursday night. We’ll see how a new special, featuring him and his wife watching the very first episode of ‘Restaurant Impossible’ does this Thursday. Also, premiering this weekend is the new season of ‘Worst Cooks: Celebrity’, followed the next day by Martha Stewart’s ‘Bakeaway Camp’ and an edgier version of ‘How to Boil Water’ titled ‘Amy Schumer Learns to Cook’, featuring the raunchy comedienne and her chef husband.

Coming off from its lowest rated season ever, 'Worst Cooks' (without Alton Brown) returned Sunday night to its reliable ratings strength, off just a percent in viewers and 5% in demo from last celebrity season's premiere (1,370,000/0.37 on 4/22/2019). Regardless, as it happened in January, 'Worst Cooks' lost to 'The Kitchen' for top show of the week.

Last night's (Mon. 5/11) two new shows had very disappointing premiere results: 'Bakeaway Camp with Martha Stewart' didn't have baking championship numbers whatsoever with just 783,000 viewers and 0.16 demo. An hour later, 'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook',with 681,000 viewers and 0.21 demo, had the second worst premiere rating of the year, after 'Vegas Chef Prizefight'. The show, which outraged FN viewers on its social media platforms ahead of the premiere, did very well with young adult women and teenage girls, reaching #13 out of the top 50 cable originals for the day. It didn't do well with men, adults 25-54 and people over 50.

This week, the season premiere of the even more emotional 'Restaurant Impossible' and 'Opening Night'. As it happened last week, Robert Irvine's special 1st episode 'RI' rewatch with his wife and another installment of his pilot 'Kitchen Expedition', tanked in the ratings. As for 'Opening Night', FN isn't promoting it at all for a reason: its 2 pilot episodes were last year's lowest rated, which only wonders why the network ordered it to series.

On 5/14/2020 at 1:21 PM, bad things are bad said:

kind of a shame the Shumer show was so poorly rated. Not that I'm a big fan, but that FN will just double down on doing the same old. At least it's a different concept. 

Yeah, every time I see the commercial for that show I think it could work with the right people. That ad ensures I will not watch a single second of that show.

'Restaurant Impossible's premiere was pretty stable season to season: just 4% down in viewers and demo from the previous one (1.11M/0.25 on 12/26/2019).

Primetime's 'Worst Cooks: Celebrity' was the most watched show for the week, as daytime's numbers were down across the board from previous weeks, as people started to end their quarantines and some outside activities have been relaxed. Let's see if this trend continues or if it was a one week occurrence.

As expected, 'Opening Night' didn't do well, just as its two pilot episodes last year, and now is FN's lowest rated new show premiere for the year, bumping 'Vegas Chef Prizefight' and 'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook'.

Speaking of Schumer...week 2's ratings for her show and 'Bakeaway Camp with Martha Stewart' were up: 9 percent in viewers and 25% demo for Martha and 13% in viewers and 9% demo for Schumer, whose show once again was mostly powered by young female viewers. Two episodes in, with 726,000 viewers/0.22 average, Schumer is close to match in viewership what 'Chopped Sweets' did at this point in the timeslot (752,000/0.20) and has surpassed it in demo. While not having great numbers, it's doing better than other recent timeslot occupants like 'Family Restaurant Rivals' and 'Cupcake Championship', but trailing others like 'Duff Takes the Cake', 'Winner Cake All' and, of course, 'Christmas Cookie Challenge'.

I recorded and watched Questlove's Potluck.  It was OK - a bunch of different celebrities making a dish at home.  I learned that Zoey Deschanel and Jonathan Scott are apparently an item.  Who knew?

'Restaurant Impossible' was the most watched show this past week. So far, its been one of the most stable shows on FN, having dropped only 5% in viewers and its even in demo from its most recent aired season.

'Questlove's Potluck' tanked, with less than 500,000 viewers and a pretty low 0.13 demo. So far, it stands as FN's least watched special of the year.

Coming after a highly rated ‘Restaurant Impossible’ ep., new docuseries ‘Summer Rush’ premiered to a paltry 535,000 viewers/0.16 demo, the second lowest rated new show opener of the year so far, surpassing fellow time slot occupant ‘Opening Night’ (which lasted one episode) by 2,000 viewers. Although its commendable that FN airs other type of programming so they can’t rely so heavily on Guy Fieri’s shows, their track record on docuseries/reality shows is poor: only ‘Ace of Cakes’, ‘Private Chefs of Beverly Hills’, ‘Mystery Diners’ and ‘Restaurant Stakeout’ come to mind as successes, while they've had a lot of failures over the years like: ‘Meat Men’, ‘Bama Glama’, ‘Bubba Q’, ‘Tough Cookies’, ‘Three Chocolatiers’, ‘Have Cake, Will Travel’, ‘Big Momma’s Kitchen’, ‘Family Style’, ‘Ice Brigade’, ‘The Chef Jeff Project’, ‘Texas Cake House’ and many more.

'Bakeaway Camp with Martha Stewart' ended its 4 episode season with an average 813,000 viewers/0.18 demo. Not a flop, but not impressive either, considering Stewart's name and if the network's intentions were to create a 'baking championship' franchise.

'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook' has to be one of the FN's biggest disappointments, averaging 662,000 viewers, heavily promoted among all Discovery networks with a well-known celebrity starring. Having said that, it wasn't much of a failure in terms of demo (powered mostly by young female viewers), currently standing at #7 among the 15 new shows that have premiered so far this year. In terms of viewers, it stands as the 3rd worst.

As 'Worst Cooks' is about to start its 20th season, celebrity season #19's finale last Sunday was down 12 percent in viewers and 18% demo from last year's (1.29M/0.33 on June 2nd, 2019). Overall, 2020's 'Worst Cooks: Celebrity' was down only 1% percent in viewers and 10% demo from 2019.

Last year, in the 'Buddy vs Duff' battle of single shows, Duff's 'Duff Takes the Cake' won overwhelmingly over Buddy's 'Bake You Rich'. This year, it was a different story as 'Duff Takes the Cake' premiered to disappointing numbers, down 37% in viewers and 28% demo from last season (910,000/0.25 on April 16th, 2019), while Buddy's 'Big Time Bake's premiere numbers were higher than Duff's, while not near the ratings from 'Bake You Rich's premiere (878,000/0.28 on April 15th, 2019), even with tons of promotion on most Discovery networks.

Speaking of the Discovery networks, Oprah Winfrey's 'Where Do We Go From Here?' pair of specials, had dismal numbers over most of the company's group of networks and most likely and if nothing changes, would end as Food Network's lowest rated specials for the year.

While continuing to be heavily promoted on other Discovery networks, 'Summer Rush' continues to flounder, losing more than half of 'Restaurant Impossible's audience.

Last Sunday’s premiere of ‘Worst Cooks in America’ with Alex Guarnaschelli as co-host/mentor broke some records, none of them good: it was the lowest rated non-celebrity season premiere ever (even lower than Alton Brown’s), the lowest rated premiere ever in demo and the lowest rated premiere on the show's current Sunday night timeslot. It’s also the second lowest rated premiere ever, being the lowest celebrity Season 11 with Rachael Ray co-hosting (1.13M/0.39 on Wednesday, August 23, 2017). As always, the premiere doesn’t represent a general trend for the entire season, especially now with news programming getting big audience chunks out of some cable channels, so we’ll see how the show performs in the coming weeks.

Although it was the most watched original this past week, episode 2 of 'Worst Cooks' season 20 with co-host Alex Guarnaschelli, is behind 5 percent in viewers and 12% in demo from Alton Brown's season at this point. Alton's season was 'Worst Cooks' lowest rated ever. We'll see how the current season continues to evolve.

‘Duff Takes the Cake’ and ‘Summer Rush’ ended, with FN airing the 3 remaining episodes of ‘Duff Takes the Cake’ straight through with not very good ratings, as well as ‘Summer Rush’. It’s surprising how FOOD didn’t promote ‘Duff Takes the Cake’, given that it was one of their brightest shows last year; now, it's the lowest rated show of the year in demo and the one with the biggest ratings losses. Even more amazing: they kept ‘Summer Rush’ the entire four weeks in the same timeslot, with Discovery giving it heavy promotion on all its networks, knowing that the show was a flop since its premiere.

In daytime, the premiere of Bobby Flay's produced pilot 'Grill Power' lost 15 percent of 'Pioneer Woman's viewers, contributing to the return of 'The Kitchen' not getting better numbers than usual.

I watched Summer Rush in a binge.  From the numbers given above, it doesn't look like there will be a Season 2.  There's a whole lot of drama in the Foy family that has zero to do with food or restaurants.  It would have been interesting to see how they handled Covid-19.

2Q ratings are in and although the 3 most watched shows were daytime's, by a small margin, prime time won on average total viewers, compared to 2019's 2Q. Daytime originals were watched by 65M viewers (among 8 shows), compared to prime time's 107M (among 21 shows). Out of those 107M, more than half are divided among 'Worst Cooks', 'Chopped', 'Beat Bobby Flay' and Guy Fieri, single handily responsible for 28M or 26 percent of prime time viewers. Guy was one of the quarter's big winners: highest demo rated shows with the most growth from 2019, plus the top new show ('DDD: Take-Out'). In daytime, 3 shows get more than 60% of viewers: 'Pioneer Woman', Trisha and 'The Kitchen', which was down in number of viewers due to lots of repackaged shows.

With lots of prime time/daytime viewers at the hands of a few shows, it meant that many shows were flops or under performed. The top non-franchise new show was 'Symon's Dinners', while 'Chopped: Sweets', 'Bakeaway Camp' and 'Big Time Bake' have been ratings disappointments; 'Duff Takes the Cake', one of last year's 2Q top new shows, had this year's biggest ratings drops. Others, like 'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook', 'Opening Night', 'Summer Rush' and 'Vegas Chef Prizefight' were duds.

This quarter, only one show surpassed the 2M viewer mark, something that hadn't happened on FN since 2016: the 'In the Kitchen with Joanna Gaines' special so far, its the network's highest rated show of the year. Other celebrity driven specials featuring Questlove and Oprah Winfrey flopped.

After 5 episodes, 'Worst Cooks' season 20 is ahead of season 18 (with Alton Brown as co-host/mentor) by 17 percent in viewers and 15% demo but, is only ahead of season 14 (with Robert Irvine as co-host/mentor), the second lowest rated non-celebrity season, by just 2% in viewers and is down 6% in demo.

'Big Time Bake' with Buddy Valastro ended its season with an average of 718,000/0.18, up 6% in viewers and down 18% in demo from last year's 'Bake You Rich', which was not as heavily promoted as 'Big Time Bake' was. Currently, 'BTB' is FN's sixth lowest rated new show of the year. In the Monday 9P timeslot, it was down 13% in viewers and on par in demo of Martha Stewart's 'Bakeaway Camp'.

Was looking for a thread on the Amy Schumer show, and didn't find one, but I suppose there's not much to say. I'm one of those who doesn't normally watch the Food Network and can take or leave her, but after watching some videos of her husband on Youtube (after being nosy/curious about him), I finally checked out this show. I like his laidback vibe (perfect for these times) and he knows what he's doing (since he obviously is a chef), so I mainly kept watching for him. (She's fine; moderately amusing in general, I guess.) I know "Chris Fischer Teaches Amy Schumer to Cook" wouldn't be a title that sells, but that's the show I'm watching. Sorry to see it isn't doing well, but glad it's coming back.

‘Worst Cook’s’ season 20’s finale was up 11 percent in viewers and 3% in demo from last year’s S17 summer finale (1.08M/0.29 on 9/22/2019 with co-host Bobby Flay). Compared to 2019, S20 held up pretty well, down just 1% in viewers and 3% demo. Nonetheless, it’s the show's 3rd least watched non-celebrity season and 5th overall; plus, it was the second lowest demo rated season ever. Alton Brown’s S18 was the worst ever on both counts.

Viewers prefer Tyler Florence as WCA's co-host, as he has 4 out of the top 10 most watched 'civilian' seasons, being his least watched this year’s celebrity S19; Bobby Flay follows with 3. Robert Irvine has both the second most watched (S2) and the second least watched (S14) seasons. Only Irvine's S2, Flay's S3 and Beau MacMillan's S1 had an average of 2+ million viewers. WCA premiered in 2010 to 4M viewers. Rachael Ray has both the highest rated (S7, fall 2015) and the 2 least watched celebrity seasons (S9 & 11).

 Ok,, Alton Brown has gone too far.   He's been on a downward spiral for likability for years now but this is the final straw.   He was just is an ad shilling for Healthy Choice Ranch Dressing.   Healthy is not the point of ranch dressing.   Those two things don't go together.   If you try to make it healthy it won't taste like ranch dressing.   It will taste like crap.   It's like plant burgers and vegan lobster.

'Emmy nominated' show 'Amy Schumer Learns to Cook' returned for its second season on Monday, August 17 to low ratings, regardless of countless promotion among all Discovery platforms; by its second week this past week, the show improved around 15 percent in viewers and 30% demo: as it happened last time around, the show is being powered by young women demos. At the moment, it ranks as FN's fifth lowest rated new show of 2020, out of 22 programs.

It took a week to replace ‘Chopped: Beat Bobby Flay’s as FN’s lowest rated Sunday 9P game show of the year, as surprisingly, ‘Halloween Wars’, one of the network’s tentpoles, premiered to 879,000 viewers/0.20 demo, a huge drop of 37 and 48 percent respectively from last year (1.40M/0.39 on 9/29/2019). ‘Road to Halloween Wars,' another strong performer, took a tumble of 20% in viewers/17% demo. Two years ago, ‘Wars’ premiered to close to 2M viewers and ‘Road’ had 1.6M. This year, ‘Wars’ premiered two weeks earlier than last year, so it’s unclear that viewers aren’t ready yet to watch Halloween shows or this will become a trend, as ‘Wars’ was a show that started strong right from its premiere, instead of one that had to build an audience as it goes along. 

‘Halloween Baking Championship,’ now with Carla Hall as host/judge, premiered Monday night down 15% in viewers and a steep 25% demo. Curiously, so far this year, other than Alton Brown’s ‘Worst Cooks’ season in January, the shows with the biggest viewer/demo declines are baking/dessert shows, like ‘Duff Takes the Cake,’ ‘Buddy vs Duff’ and ‘Kids Baking Championship.’ Also, ‘Big Time Bake’ is the 7th lowest rated new show of the year and 'Chopped: Sweets' the 8th. 

At this point, the 5th lowest rated new show, ‘Amy Schumer Learns to Cook’ ended its season the same way it started: in last place. The show had an average of 607,000 viewers and 0.18 demo. On the other side, reruns of Cooking Channel's 'All-Star Best Thing I Ever Ate' were strong and reliable performers, averaging 819,000/0.19.

This past Monday 9/21, 'Halloween Baking Championship's second episode (1.20M/0.27) recovered quite nicely from its premiere, up 21 percent in viewers and down 7% in demo.
