Bravo’s "Top Chef" Has Highest Ratings Ever

Bravo’s reality chef show called “Top Chef” had its highest ratings ever this past Wednesday night. The show which featured a super size episode drew 2.2 million viewers including myself. The second season now running on Bravo has been averaging 1.7 million viewers which is up 54 percent over ratings for season one at this point. The show has already been renewed for a third season.
