BRAVO'S "TOP CHEF 3 MIAMI" RETURNS AS NO. 1 FOOD SHOW ON CABLE

Third Season Premiere Served Up More than Two Million Total Viewers

NEW YORK � June 14, 2007 � Bravo's pop culture culinary and ratings sensation "Top Chef 3 Miami" premiered last night as the No. 1-rated food show on cable television across all demographics, according to Nielsen Media Research. The season premiere attracted 1,407,000 adults 18-49 and 2,024,000 million total viewers.

Last night's 10 p.m. "Top Chef 3 Miami" premiere increased from cycle two "Top Chef's" 11 p.m. premiere (10/18/06) by five percent among adults 18-49 (1.407 million vs. 1.337 million) and total viewers by eight percent (2.024 million vs. 1.872 million). Of note, "Top Chef's" season two premiere's lead-in was "Project Runway's" season three finale, the highest rated program in Bravo's 27-year history, making the "Top Chef" cycle-over-cycle increase all the more impressive.

Additionally, last night's broadcast � in which Clay was eliminated for his "inedible dish" � outperformed "Next Food Network Star" season three 9-11 p.m. premiere (06/03/07) by 100 percent among 18-49 (1.407 million vs. 705,000) and by 26 percent among total viewers (2.024 million vs. 1.606 million).

In next week's episode of "Top Chef 3 Miami," Miami's fresh tropical fruits abound (Wed, June 20 at 10:00 PM ET/PT). Presiding over a scenic elimination is guest judge Norman Van Aken (Owner of Norman's Restaurant in Miami/Orlando), as the chefs cater a high-end gourmet barbeque party on the Intracoastal Waterway,
