Hell’s Kitchen ends tonight

The sleeper reality hit of the summer, Hell’s Kitchen, concludes tonight with a two-hour finale. Ralph and Michael, perhaps the only two competent chefs in the whole group, battle it out to win their own restaurant. And Gordon Ramsey will probably scream at someone.

Each gets to create their own microcosmic restaurant to show Ramsey that they have what it takes. And their kitchens will be staffed by, of course, the useless fame whores who populated the series until Ramsey stabbed each one onto a meat hook. Well, metaphorically.

The fun begins at 8 p.m. ET.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
