FOX Sneaks in One Last Kitchen Nightmare

Gordon Ramsay; Kitchen NightmaresThe second season of the American version of began last September, and evidently finished up just last night. Though the show disappeared from the FOX schedule on November 20, it returned - briefly - for one last hurrah.

And for those of you who missed the Kitchen Nightmares finale, it’ll no doubt be reappearing on FOX’s reality channel, so never fear. The episode was touted as the last of the second season and the show does not reappear on the schedule this year, but there could be one unaired episode on the season. Some listings show this episode as the last, rather than the one touted as the last.

Make sense? Even if it doesn’t, this odd reappearance and disappearance is confusing enough. But just the same, ’s Kitchen Nightmares have ended this season. There are many more awaiting him in the next, however. FOX is even now casting for the third season of the show, which bodes well for Ramsay fans.

The show may be over for the year, but the chef still has a lot more reality left in him. Gordon Ramsay will only be missing from the FOX line up for two weeks, as he’s slated to return in the fifth season of . The premiere will air January 29th, and it’s unlikely this show will experience the same programming gap.

This Week on TV (11/10-11/16)

Anthony Edwards and Angela Bassett in ER

(You can view TV Envy’s Fall Television Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (11/10)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Chuck chances upon his ex-flame (Jordana Brewster) and embellishes his status in life to impress her.” We’re talking about a girl who starred in D.E.B.S.. He shouldn’t try too hard.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Gretchen gives Michael the rest of the bird book, but he suffers another seizure after deciphering it.” That pretty much sums up my feelings about bird books as well.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30):  “Sam is sentenced to community service, where she meets a troubled young woman () and decides to help turn her life around.” Sam has now become the better-looking version of Earl Hickey.
  • 17 Kids and Counting (TLC, 10pm):  “Jinger takes her driving test; the family celebrates Michelle’s birthday and responds to viewer questions.” Uhh, I have a question. Jinger? Seriously?
