RvGNEW YORK – January 4, 2010 – Food Network began the New Year with a bang, premiering Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off on New Year’s Day, posting a 1.5 adults 25-54 rating and finished #1 in its timeslot among ad-supported cable networks (#2 for the night). Among adults 25-54, the show saw a 48% lift over the prior 13-week average and a 22% increase vs. year ago. Food Network was also the highest-rated, most-watched cable network on Sunday night, posting a 1.2 rating and garnering 1.3 million impressions among adults 25-54. Additionally, the week of December 26th was the network’s highest-rated week ever with a .7 adults 25-54 rating and .9 women 25-54 in prime*.

Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off  squares off two of Food Network’s biggest icons, Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri for culinary bragging rights airing Sundays at 9pm ET/PT through February 5th. Emmy®-winning talk show host Rachael Ray and best-selling cookbook author and successful restaurateur Guy Fieri, serve as coaches and mentors to eight multi-talented celebrities, all of whom are passionate about food and cooking.  Divided into ‘Team Rachael’ and ‘Team Guy’, each episode features celebrity contestants battling it out in a fun, fast-paced culinary fight-to-the-finish, with the two bottom-rated contestants from the losing team going head-to-head in a blind tasting elimination challenge. In the end, the last contestant standing is crowned king or queen of the Celebrity Cook-Off and wins $50,000 for the charity they are playing to support. Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off is produced by Jane Street Entertainment.
