FOX has put Hotel Hell back on the schedule with a debut date of August 13th. Time will tell if it’ll actually air this time.
The network has changed their plans for the new Gordon Ramsay series twice before, having previously announced April 6th and June 4th as premiere dates.
Here’s the press release from FOX.
GORDON RAMSAY CHECKS INN TO “HOTEL HELL” WITH TWO-NIGHT SERIES PREMIERE EVENT MONDAY, AUGUST 13 AND TUESDAY, AUGUST 14 ON FOX
Gordon Ramsay opens the doors to HOTEL HELL with a two-night series premiere event Monday, Aug. 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and Tuesday, Aug. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The unscripted series featuring Ramsay on a quest to fix horrid hotels, awful inns and just plain bad bed and breakfasts will continue airing Mondays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) beginning Aug. 20.
After more than a decade of running restaurants in some of the world’s top hotels, Ramsay knows firsthand the crucial importance of surpassing guests’ highest expectations. In HOTEL HELL, Ramsay will endure hotels at their worst – from filthy bedrooms and mold-ridden bathrooms to dreadful room service and incompetent staff – all so unsuspecting guests don’t have to. After he has uncovered all the dirty secrets, Ramsay will put the hotel owners and employees to work as he attempts to turn around these failing establishments. With reputations on the line, one thing is certain: if they can’t meet Ramsay’s high standards, they will never check out of HOTEL HELL.
HOTEL HELL is produced by One Potato Two Potato Inc. (part of the All3Media group). Gordon Ramsay, Ben Adler, Patricia Llewellyn and Adeline Ramage Rooney serve as executive producers. “Like” HOTEL HELL on Facebook at www.facebook.com/HotelHellonFOX.

What do you think? Will Hotel Hell finally air on FOX? Do you think that it’ll be a hit for the network?
You know, as interesting as “Restaurant Impossible” and “Kitchen Nightmares” are to me, I have zero interest in “Hotel Impossible” and I’ll be passing on this one. It’s just what industry interests you, I suppose.
