Anne Burrell’s new Food Network TV show, Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, has gotten a stormy reception among Netizens. But is it actually doing well? The premiere episode had 662,000 viewers, says Allison Page, the Food Network’s vice-president of programming. That was a 21 percent increase over Simply Delicioso, which ran previously in the time slot. The Food Network plans to air six episodes of Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, but could order another ten or so. Anne Burrell, like us, will have to wait and see.
Will Anne Burrell get through a full season?
