Gordon Ramsay Announces End of Kitchen Nightmares

Over on GordonRamsay.com, your source for all kinds of Gordon Ramsay  news and updates, the British chef says the time has come for him to put  a fork in Kitchen Nightmares, which began ten years ago, we're  guessing, with a bunch of yelling and a handful of inept U.K.  restaurateurs. The chef discussed his franchise with Deadline recently,  and said that he intended to "turn it upside down, reposition it and  maybe hand the position over to someone else one day." This doesn't mean  the end for Hell's Kitchen, MasterChef, and MasterChef Junior, he notes, while writing, "It's sad to say goodbye to Kitchen Nightmares but I'll be continuing with my other shows."

Over 60 Percent of the Restaurants on 'Kitchen Nightmares' Are Now Closed

In the end, Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares  went out with a humble blog post, not with a bang, and in any case the  chef's farewell announcement earlier this week marks the end of an  expletive-filled era and slaying comments like, "Chimichangas?  Chimi-chuck it in the bin." There were a few lawsuits along the way and  various claims from proprietors that the show wrecked their businesses,  but in all, while some spots have scintillating Yelp! reviews now, Kitchen Nightmares saved less than half of its featured restaurants, and a few even closed before their episodes aired.

Sadly, Amy's Baking Co is still open.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

I know. There are a lot of non-discriminating garbage-guts out there.  **nononono*
