LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- VH1 is relocating newcomer "Famous Food" to Wednesdays at 8:00/7:00c, a network spokesperson has confirmed to the site.
The series opened to a paltry 430,000 viewers and a 0.2 rating among adults 18-49 this past Sunday following a new "Celebrity Rehab" (1.123 million, 0.6 rating among adults 18-49). Said numbers marked VH1's least-watched series debut of the year, falling behind the previous low set by "The X Life" (487,000 viewers, 0.3 rating among adults 18-49 on 1/10/11).
An original "Famous Food" will still air this Sunday, July 17 at 10:00/9:00c before assuming the Wednesday, 8:00/7:00c slot the following week.
As previously reported, "Behind the Music" will replace "Food" on Sunday nights beginning July 24.
