Last year, Gordon Ramsay premiered his US version of The F Word on FOX, which was a middle-of-the-road performer for an unscripted summertime TV series. Although it hasn’t been officially cancelled, the network hasn’t renewed it either, and it is unlikely to return. Still, the celebrity chef has had a long, successful partnership with the network, and now they’ve launched Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back TV show. Does it have the right ingredients to satisfy the audience? Will Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back be cancelled or renewed for season two on FOX? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A FOX restaurant rehab reality TV series, Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back is a new twist on the old Kitchen Nightmares format. Salty Chef Ramsay shows up in his custom, mobile “Hell on Wheels” command-center (equipped with a full kitchen) and assesses what ails a flagging eatery. In just 24 hours’ time, Ramsay and his team renovate the restaurant, refresh its menu, and help the owners relaunch it.
