Gordon Ramsay is one of those "love him or hate him" kind of guys. Actually, it might be more accurate to say that he's one of those "love to hate him" kind of guys. Either way, he certainly attracts strong ratings, as evidenced by the upcoming third iteration of Hell's Kitchen on Fox. If you're lucky enough to have BBC America and can't quite get enough of The Angry Chef, you'll be happy to hear this:
BBC America just announced their new schedule and Thursday night is shaping up as a virtual nirvana for Gordo fans:
Big Thursday – chef Gordon Ramsay and his two shows: Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and Gordon Ramsay's F Word in addition to the Irish yenta celebrity gossip, The Graham Norton Show.
Now that the hoopla has died down around his New York restaurant and the middling reviews that it received, it will be interesting to see if that episode has any lasting impact on the popularity of Ramsay as a personality. The bloom is off the rose as far as his American reputation is concerned. He had been a largely unknown quantity, at least as far as his food. Will he continue to draw strong ratings with the belief out there that his food isn't all it's cracked up to be?
