topchef-022709UPDATE: I’ve added the Bravo press release, which I missed earlier, and updated the article to reflect a more complete ratings picture.

The original article follows below.

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.

The full press release, which also includes data for The Real Housewives of Orange County, follows after the jump. (more…)
