Record ratings for Top Chef Masters debut

Despite having a new host and judges and a one-off episode format for the first six episodes, Top Chef Masters drew a record audience to Bravo.

Its 1.37 million viewers represent “the highest rated Wednesday series premiere ever for the network in all key demos in the 10 p.m. time period” and a 96 percent increase over the show’s very first season, according to a Bravo press release. In addition, 907,000 people ages 18 to 49 watched. The 11 p.m. repeat brought another 636,000 viewers. 18-49.

The debut also drew people online: Bravo says its web site had “its highest page views for a series premiere in nearly three years with 276,000 hits in its premiere day.” Andy Cohen is probably peeing in his BravoTV.com boxers.
