Hell’s Kitchen: Season 12 Ratings

Hell's Kitchen season 12 ratingsChef Gordon Ramsay has been incredibly successful with FOX TV shows like MasterChef, MasterChef Junior, and Kitchen Nightmares. Hell’s Kitchen has done so well that the network has already renewed it for a 13th season, before season 12 even started airing. But, nothing can last forever, right? Is it too much Ramsay for the viewing public? Will FOX regret renewing Hell’s Kitchen so far in advance? Time will tell.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    I think the show is great. I crank up my surround sound for Hell’s Kitchen. I love most, when the food is not seasoned or cooked properly, and chef gets pissed! I also like when chef says, “…cooked perfectly..” And, I love that everything is clean.

    Gordon Ramsey may have moved the culinary arts up a notch.

    I agree with Grandizer. I went to chef’s school and did not get the kind of training that prepares you for the real world such as Gordon Ramsay’s world. If you can’t take the heat you need to stay out of the kitchen! I wish I would have had a mentor like him when I was in school.

    It’s time to cancel Hell’s Kitchen. It has become very obvious that it is scripted – and also, everyone knows the producers give COOKING CLASSES to the participants prior to taping. Last season, it was obvious by episode 8 who Ramsey was going to pick as winner, and this season it’s shaping up the same way. He’s a hack making dollars. Time to go.

    I love hell’s kitchen. Some of the chefs are blow hards & idiots. They need to be put in their place.

    You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation however I to
    find this matter to be actually something that I feel I’d by no means understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely huge for me. I am looking ahead in your next publish, I will attempt to get the hang
    of it!

    I have to admit I love all of Gordon’s shows and never tire of them. There was a several month period when there were no Gordon shows on the air and I felt like I was going through withdrawal. I say renew!

    I would love to get on season 13 I have ms. But I can still cook better than most if I can apply let me know . thank you much Christopher Bernard.

    PS. I like the show think I would do well.

  11. Why Watch says

    What I can’t understand are the people who enjoy watching people get yelled at, denegrated and mentally abused. I don’t find the Ramsay shows one iota interesting.

      Never worked in a high volume kitchen of a better then average restaurant then have you?
      No matter what you think almost every chef that has gone through the experience of working with Ramsey is a better chef for it. You don’t get coddled when you are on a show where you are supposed to have some experience in what you are doing, standards to be met, and a time limit to meet.
      I have a daughter in school to be a chef, I hope she is treated this way. The big money for chefs come from chefs that can handle this sort of pressure. If you want to work in a B&B, then no, you don’t need Gordon’s brand of teaching. Yes he IS TEACHING. But if you want to work in a Las Vegas, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Boston restaurant with REAL cloth tablecloths and real wine that costs more then 20 dollars a bottle, then you need to be able to perform ALL of the time, the first time.
      More power to Gordon Ramsey.
