It appears that viewers won’t be treated to a third helping of Jamie Oliver’s reality series “Food Revolution”.

The Ryan Seacrest produced show had lots of momentum and fairly solid ratings headed into this year’s second season, but it appears that all of the issues Oliver has faced in attempting to get into LA school district cafeterias has taken its toll. Numbers for this year are down and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has decided to pull the series for May sweeps.

Their reasoning? The recap show for “Dancing with the Stars” is a better compliment to the DWTS results show on Tuesday nights than Oliver’s healthy eating series. Ouch.

Nevertheless, ABC says they’re still behind “Food Revolution” and plan to air the remaining four episodes starting June 3rd. But really – when you replace an original series with a recap show – the future doesn’t look so bright.

    SO sadly typically american, we would rather watch a bunch of overpaid actors dance then teach our children to eat properly! Very sad indeed. The school districts should be ashamed of themselves, but once again it’s all about politics and MONEY! Shame on you American Schools for feeding our children processed garbage.
