The British TV star and chef says he will no longer continue doing the TV programme.
Chef Gordon Ramsay is quitting the restaurant makeover business and will stop producing Kitchen Nightmares. “As filming comes to a close on the latest series of Kitchen Nightmares I’ve decided to stop making the show,” Ramsay announced on his official website.
Kitchen Nightmares debuted on Britain’s Channel 4 in 2004 and then an American adaptation premiered on Fox in 2007.
He continued, “I’m currently filming four new episodes – Costa Del Nightmares – for Channel 4 which will be my last. I’ve had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across two continents, watched by tens of millions of people and sold to over 150 countries. It’s been a blast, but it’s time to call it a day.”
A representative for Fox didn’t immediately respond to the TheWrap’s request for comment. In May, the Season 7 finale of Kitchen Nightmares scored a 0.9 rating/3 share among the advertiser-coveted Adults 18-49 demographic and only 2.4 million total viewers.
Without Kitchen Nightmares, Ramsay still has quite the packed schedule of other television shows with Fox, including Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, MasterChef Junior, and Hotel Hell, which premieres on July 21 in the US. — Reuters
