FOX still has a hankering for Chef Gordon Ramsay and his programming goodies. Fans don’t have to worry that his Hell’s Kitchen TV show will be cancelled too soon, either. It was renewed through its 18th season, back in September of last year. Will the ratings in the 17th season of Hell’s Kitchen prove the network’s faith is justified? Will it be cancelled or renewed for future seasons? Stay tuned.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

For comparisons: The 16th season of Hell’s Kitchen averaged a 1.09 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.48 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
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.
