Feb 12, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Bravo’s “Top Chef” reigned supreme among cable shows Wednesday night, taking the top spot and matching its previous season high.
At 10 p.m., “Chef” scored a 1.8 rating/5 share among adults 18-49 and drew 3.3 million viewers, according to national ratings from Nielsen Media Research. The cooking competition series matched last week’s season high in the demo. In households, the show scored a tie for No. 1 with a 2.1/4.
ESPN’s presentation of a college basketball matchup between the University of North Carolina and Duke tied with “Chef” among households, posting a 1.4/4 in the demo and 3.3 million viewers. Starting at 9 p.m., last night’s game doubled the ratings from last week’s telecast of the game between Duke and Clemson. The network’s coverage of the game Wednesday tied for the second highest-rated show in the demo for all of cable.
Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” returned to TBS with ratings similar to where it left off. At 10 p.m. the show posted a 1.2/3 (3 million) and at 10:30 p.m. it bumped up to 1.4/4 (3.3 million). Compared with the last original telecasts on Dec. 10 at those times, last night’s episodes were down 14% and flat, respectively. The network tied the No. 2 and the No. 5 shows for the night.
On Comedy Central, new series “Important Things With Demetri Martin” opened with a 1.3/4 (2.4 million) in the 10:30 p.m. slot. The show improved 108% from its “South Park” lead-in and outperformed the last series to debut in the slot (“Chocolate News”) by 8%.
