Top Chef Seattle has had three weeks of torrid ratings and so the increase of last night’s fourth episode to 0.50 in the 18-49 demo will give Bravo Media and Magical Elves a little to cheer about. Just don’t expect any press releases yet! Overall, this week saw the total audience climb to 1,115,000 viewers and that has pushed the season-to-date average just above the 1m mark; to 1,003,250 viewers per episode. That’s also reduced the prior season deficits to -36.76 for total audience and -43.33% in the 18-49 demo versus Season 9 and -48.44% total and -56.41% in the 18-49 demo versus All Stars Season 8. Additionally as the season has progressed each week has seen a growth in viewership so perhaps all is not yet lost for Top Chef.

The 9pm finale of Life After Top Chef which last week dropped to its second 0.10 demo rating of its freshman season saw a dramatic ratings improvement as its audience climbed to 575,000 people and earned just its second 0.30 in the 18-49 demo. On both occasions however with viewership in that age bracket of 318,000 and last night’s 316,000, it only just scraped above a 0.20. That means its season finishes with averages of 484,250 total viewers of which 264,875 were aged 18-49 and you can be certain that Bravo Media will not commission a second season of this spin-off. That means that LATC will join Top Chef Desserts as canceled series for Bravo.

Despite the increase in Top Chef’s audience, it seems it wasn’t enough to boost Andy Cohen’s ratings for WWHL and nor were his guests; Snooki, JWOWW, Deena Cortese and Sammi Giancola from MTV’s recently concluded Jersey Shore, as for the fourth straight night WWHL failed to score a place in the Cable Nightly Top 100 television shows.

Not surprisingly LOLWork was unable to hold onto the 11pm time slot it was given for its first three episodes and now follows WWHL, and airs at 11:30pm rather than preceding it. It will be another day until we see if they’ve managed to increase their audience size with WWHL as their lead-in and we’ll also update this post with their ratings, once we have them.

    Glad they’re cancelling Life After Top Chef, a really boring dud. Fabio seems like the only one they could build a show around, but even he appears to have run low on charm & interest.

    I did not watch either of the chef shows, but i am embarrassed to admit I did watch WWHL, maybe for the last time. The “crotch” game and the call-in contest of “Which girl is the hottest” are so degrading and juvenile. Those girls aren’t just playing dumb or they would have walked off set. I did like andy’s haircut but it seems a little young for him.
