Probably not all iTunes fault.This season has had it's faults, both with the all Texas theme and technology wise. I suspect that the problem is LESS with iTunes than it is with Bravo. Customer services lack of response on iTunes part (who would be out of business if this happened all the time on many different shows) feels like they are shienlding a paying but sometimes incompetent client...which would not shock me coming from Bravo. I am just about done with Top Chef anyways; it's pretty much run it's course in 10 seasons. So I'll just wait the couple of days it takes to get this fixed and watch some other shows..Score: 3/5
