Once again, there seems to be no chance of Hell’s Kitchen being cancelled since FOX renewed the Gordon Ramsay cooking competition for a 16th season quite awhile ago. However, the ratings have dropped quite a bit since then. Did they make a mistake renewing this show for multiple seasons? Will the numbers continue to fall? Could it still be cancelled? Stay tuned.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you still like the Hell’s Kitchen TV show? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a 17th season?
