Kitchen Nightmares? FOX Dreams of More Gordon Ramsay Ratings
Can you ever have enough of Gordon Ramsay? FOX is certainly hoping you cannot.
The network is bringing the mean chef's original UK reality series to the States this fall. Kitchen Nightmares will air in the competitive Thursday at 9 p.m. timeslot. It was initially scheduled to air in the spring.
On the show, Ramsay helps "restaurant owners in crisis with lazy chefs in the kitchen, temperamental wait staffs and few and unhappy diners" by doing what he does best: making like an even meaner version of Simon Cowell, screaming and insulting.
In the U.S. version, which the original press release described as being "inspired by" the UK program, Ramsay "attempts to turn around floundering restaurants in less than a week," FOX said this week.
Meanwhile, Hell's Kitchen 3 debuts in June.
It should be a fiery summer across many ovens this summer on FOX.
