“I’ve decided to stop making the show,” the popular TV chef announced
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 Monday on his official website.
“Kitchen Nightmares” debuted on the UK’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.
