The ‘Revolution’ will be televised — but on Fridays in June, not Tuesdays in May.
After drawing a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 on April 19, its last original airing Tuesdays at 8 p.m., “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” is ducking for cover. ABC has pulled the show from what has become a heavily competitive Tuesday, with plans to bring it back on Fridays (the night it aired in 2010).
ABC will repeat the first two episodes of the season from 8-10 p.m. on May 27 (the start of Memorial Day weekend), before broadcasting its next original “Food Revolution” at 9 p.m. June 3, followed by “20/20.” This will continue through the finale of the six-episode season June 24.
ABC moved encore specials of “Dancing With the Stars” into the 8 p.m. Tuesday timeslot last week and saw its audience more than double for the hour.
