Just because I fell back in love with Gordon Ramsay after the last Kitchen Nightmares, a reminder of a 2 hour Hell's Kitchen tonight

And yes I will be watching, and after being reinvigorated on all things Gordon Ramsay after the incredible Kitchen Nightmares at Ann's Baking Company Friday I may even post a recap of the two-hour show tonight where I'm sure we'll see Gordon do something he's never done before!
(I hope Ray wins)

      Different day today... and two hours! I think they are doing season finales of New Girl and the Mindy Project hour longs so had to bump stuff around.

    2. Honestly, I may be the last idiot left on the planet but I actually enjoyed his F Word Show on BBC America rather than these Nightmares...

        I think a lot of people would agree with you. This KN has people like me coming back to the show for a look because the restaurant owners are deliciously insane.

        1. re: Gio

          The F-Word is the show I keep wishing GR would do here in the US. And it makes me angry since I know anyone who could do a show that good knows exactly how bad his Fox shows are.

        2. Gordon Ramsey is so basically stupid. Anyone who has to lose his temper and swear to get results should not be in a leadership role and that's really all there is to it. And his Kitchen Nightmares show just sets people up to fail. Remodel the restaurant overnight, show the staff a completely new menu and invite every dignitary in town for the opening three hours later with no training. What could go wrong?? There isn't a culinary professional in the world who respects him. He's on television because of his bleeps.

            There is no question of his television motives, but the guy is much more than a temper. A philanthropist of sort. He has used his success to launch the careers of many, while saving others. Try researching some of his "kn" restaurants and although not all survive, many have taken off.

            Furthermore, Can you cite your sources of no industry professionals respecting him? That is not the sentiment of several of my close friends / colleagues who have worked for (and against) him. Aggressive and abrasive, perhaps, but highly respected.

              they are probably jealous of his kazillion michelin stars

            2. Playing a part to make money off viewers doesn't make Gordo stupid. The people who can't see past the acting are the ones that I worry about.
