Gordon Ramsay will attempt to turn around failing restaurants, but on 24 Hours to Hell & Back, he’ll have just 24 hours to do that.
A new show that’s casting now for restaurants that want makeovers that will be completed in 24 hours appears to be Gordon Ramsay’s next Kitchen Nightmares.
Kitchen Nightmares has been cancelled, but drama stemming from Gordon Ramsay’s Fox reality series continues thanks to Amy’s Baking Company. However, now that Samy Bouzaglo has threatened to stab someone while being filmed, it’s time for everyone to leave them alone forever.

Fox’s Kitchen Nightmares will end, Gordon Ramsay announced today, following the conclusion of filming of its final season. That will make a total of 10 years, 12 seasons, and 123 episodes, he said. While he didn’t give a specific reason, Ramsay wrote, “I’ve decided to stop making the show” and said “It’s been a blast… continue reading
As adapted by Fox and A. Smith & Co. Productions, Kitchen Nightmares went from a terrifically entertaining, dramatic UK series to a loud, dumbed-down, badly produced mess. Throughout its run, it’s only gotten worse. But last year’s fantastic finale episode, featuring Amy’s Baking Company, was different. Sure, it had some of the eye-rolling bullshit we’ve… continue reading
Kitchen Nightmares superstar trainwrecks Amy and Samy Buzaglo appeared on the Phoenix Fox affiliate to “fire back at critics,” and of course the resulting interview will feed the “online legion trolls” (as Amy calls redditors) even more. Definitely watch the two segments, one broadcast and one outtakes, for the full effect, such as Amy spontaneously… continue reading

Meanwhile, Fox is planning a special episode that will look at reaction to the episode in Arizona. Kitchen Nightmares producers filmed in… continue reading
This season of Kitchen Nightmares delivered what was easily the series’ best episode, and since that aired, there has been a lot of off-camera drama thanks to owners Samy and Amy Bouzaglo–and viewers who responded strongly to what they saw. Their restaurant, Amy’s Baking Company, has received threats from the show’s producers and had a… continue reading
Friday’s epic episode of Kitchen Nightmares, on which the owners of Amy’s Baking Company led Gordon Ramsay to quit, resulted in a flood of reviews of the restaurant on Yelp, but not from people who’d been there. Instead, they appeared to be from viewers who apparently needed a place to anonymously vent and be awful… continue reading
Gordon Ramsay has threatened to quit and walk away from Kitchen Nightmares so often that it no longer has any weight. So last night’s episode–which was surprisingly good for a series that has been predictably mediocre for so long–had to work overtime to convince us that he actually did walk away from Amy’s Baking Company… continue reading
Bravo has renewed Top Chef for a 10th season, despite the pretty disappointing season that’s currently airing. The 10th season is currently casting and will tape in May for broadcast later this year.

Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, the dumbed-down US version of his great UK series Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, has been renewed for a third season by Fox. The second season is now airing Fridays at 9, and has a number of episodes to go, so the third season likely won’t debut until at least fall, if not… continue reading
The couple who will be featured on Friday’s edition of Kitchen Nightmares only interacted with Gordon Ramsay on camera, and detailed the way the production creates drama.

Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares will return sometime this season, but while the show may be entertaining, it’s not always successful: eight of 13 New York area restaurants Ramsay visited during seasons one and two are no longer open.
