FOX Dreams Up More 'Nightmares'
Network really, really, really likes Gordon Ramsay


FOX has ordered up a second helping of Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares."

Produced by Grenada America and Optomen Television, "Kitchen Nightmares" features Chef Ramsay giving top-to-bottom overhauls for disastrously failing restaurants.

FOX initially ordered 10 episodes for the Americanized version of the original British format and it's believed that the second season order is comparable.

Airing in the ultra-competitive time 9 p.m. time period on Wednesday nights, "Kitchen Nightmares" has regularly finished fourth in both viewers and in the key 18-49 demo. FOX boasts that the show has represented a 21 percent demo bump over the time period average for the fourth quarter of 2006 and in its most recent airing, "Kitchen Nightmares" came very close to beating NBC's "Bionic Woman" in the young adult demo.

Ramsay is already at work on a new cycle of "Hell's Kitchen" and with a swift "Kitchen Nightmares" turnaround, FOX could become the chef's year-round home.

It has to go for 3 seasons so that they can do "Kitchen Nightmares Revisited."

Most US shows stolen from the UK usually suxor when compared to the original.

I like the UK version a little better, but this one will do. I put this in the "good news" column.

Have to disagree on the US version of the Office, not as good as the UK version but it is still a very well written and funny show. Especially the Gay Witch Hunt episode which was as funny as anything Gervais and Merchant ever wrote.

Next up on the chopping block, the IT Crowd. It's only saving grace being that Richard Ayoade reprises his role as Moss.
