Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Gets Bumped to Fridays

New, 32 comments

Despite its noble goals and season one Emmy ? and because of its low ratings ? Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution has been yanked from ABC's schedule for the time bring. The show, in which Jamie Oliver encourages Americans to change our god-awful eating practices, will reportedly return June 3, back in the 9 p.m. Friday time slot it occupied for its first season.

This doesn't bode well for a show that was pulling modest ratings earlier this year when this season's first few episodes aired on Tuesdays. Jamie Oliver will need some really amazing costumes to boost ratings back on Friday nights, which is prime time for TV viewers to be out stuffing their faces with giant portions of trans fats.

Not to worry, though: Oliver's former Tuesday night slot will be filled by another hour of Dancing With the Stars.
