Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution (9-10pm): Once again jumping from lead-in at 9pm among Total Viewers (+37%) and Adults 18-49 (+56%) and gaining audience throughout its broadcast, ABC freshman Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution ranked #1 in the 9 o’clock hour among Adults 18-49 (1.4/5-tie). In addition, Food Revolution finished #1 in the hour for the 2nd week in a row among Adults 18-34 and for the 4th week running among Women 18-34.
