ABC Pulls 'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution'
Bad news for chef/TV personality Jamie Oliver.
ABC has pulled the the Ryan Seacrest-produced reality series, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, from the schedule during May sweeps.
The show, which follows Oliver as he tries to change the way kids and adults eat at home and in school, will air its four remaining episodes beginning Friday, June 3 at 9 p.m.
ABC says the Dancing With the Stars recap was a better complement to the DWTS results show on Tuesday nights, though emphasizes it is still behind the anti-junk food series. The network had pre-empted the third episode of Food Revolution for a DWTS-related hour last week.
Food Revolution has dropped in the ratings in its second season, with the premiere slipping nearly 40 percent from last year's series debut.
