The Next Food Network Star is in it’s fifth season and it started last weekend 9pm ET/PT. Oh my goodness it hit record numbers last week. It was the highest rated season premiere in the history of Food Network. More people watched this episode cumulatively, premiere and encore airings, than last year with 4.5 million total viewers 2+ (up 22 percent versus season four), 2.4 million adults 25-54 (up 9 percent), 2.3 million persons 18-49 (up 15 percent) and 3.3 million households (up 22 percent) tuning in.
Jen Isham was the first to be sent home. She believes that no one in her age group is represented on the Food Network. I disagree with her. I’m 29 and I like a lot of the chefs. Her food specialty is crowd pleasing dinners that don’t break the budget. Who doesn’t consider this when they are cooking now days?
Tune in tonight to see who goes home next. I wish the episodes were on-line so I could watch them. I don’t have cable!!! My husband and I love this show. GRRRRR.
