Wednesday’s Top Chef season five finale on Bravo drew a 2.5/4 HH rating/share, 3.74 million viewers and a 2.1/6 adults 18-49 rating/share, becoming the show’s second-highest-rated episode.  The episode grew 11% over last year’s finale and was just one-tenth of a point behind season 2’s record high.  The 2.1 A18-49 rating translates to 2.77 million viewers in the demo, making for an incredibly impressive 74% of its total audience.

Here’s a bit more from the Bravo press release:

This season, “Top Chef: New York” averaged 2.14 million adults 18-49 and 3.02 million total viewers. Versus season four, the show is up 18 percent in adults 18-49 (vs. 1.81 million) and 19 percent in total viewers (vs. 2.54 million). Season-to-date, the series ranks No.1 for all cable entertainment in its Wednesday 10 p.m. time period among adults 18-49 and total viewers, and with the finale, the series also marked its fifth consecutive week of gains in those demographics.
