Antena 1 acquired the international cooking show format in 2012. The 1st season started last year, in November, and ended in January. Top Chef didn’t make itself noticed in audiences, with only 2 editions managing to pass the 1M viewers mark at national level.
The show, initially broadcasted on Mondays, was systematically overrun by Suleyman the Magnificent (Kanal D) and Bet with life (Pro TV), and sometimes even by Antena 3. It was eventually moved on Saturdays, starting 22.00.
The audiences for the 1st season of Top Chef are available here
