Jamie Oliver's 'Food Revolution' sees ratings drop
Jamie Oliver's ABC reality show "Food Revolution" recently returned for a second season and the premiere's ratings were lower than last year's debut.
"Food revolution" showcases the television chef's mission to educate Americans about healthy eating habits. Tuesday's episode was watched by an estimated 5.3 million and earned a rating of 1.4, marking a 36 percent decrease from the first episode of season 1, the Hollywood Reporter said.
During the premiere, Oliver had a yellow school bus filled with what appeared to be sand to demonstrate how much sugar is said to be added to flavored milk provided to students who attend schools that are part of the Los Angeles Unified School District.
"This is your children getting drowned in this trusting school bus," he said on the episode. "Yeah, I'm trying to make it dramatic, because I want people to care. This is 100 percent real. This is only a week's work. This is aboslutely classic to the whole of America."
Oliver, 35, has said that he himself does indulge when it comes to food, but in moderation.Watch the season 2 premiere of Jamie Oliver's "Food Revolution" below.
