Articles for Hell's Kitchen Season 9

Hell‘s Kitchen returns for a ninth season tonight at 8pm on FOX, and now it‘s sizzling on two nights. The show will air at 8pm on both Monday and Tuesday for its first five weeks before slimming down to just one new episode Mondays at 9pm starting August 22.That may be different, but Hell‘s Kitchen remains the same show full of cocky chefs and a very loud and angry Gordon Ramsay. The berating Brit continues to mock the 18 aspiring chefs who are competing to be the head chef at BLT Stack in New York City.  Read more »
Last night, Gordon Ramsay returned to TV (er, for the second time this summer) with an all-new season of Hell‘s Kitchen. The kitchen competition is nothing if not consistent for FOX, and it premiered with a hefty 2.5 Nielsen rating for adults 18-49. Ramsay‘s other show on FOX, MasterChef, was steady versus last week. Elsewhere, The Bachelorette was hitting a season low, and Extreme Makeover: Weight-Loss Edition was inching up.Let‘s take a look at the numbers. Read more »
Here‘s your BuddyTV High Five: The five big moments and questions from tonight‘s episode of Hell‘s Kitchen, "Top 12 Compete." I won‘t lie: Hell‘s Kitchen stresses me out. But that‘s what makes it so good. In other reality shows, I don‘t get as invested as I do when Chef Ramsay takes someone out verbally. This season, if the first two episodes are any indication, is going to follow suit and I will probably need a valium.  Read more »
This week on Hell‘s Kitchen, the contestants chase chickens (and I don‘t mean the way they behave in the kitchen while cooking). Once they catch their chickens, they have to make chicken dishes. The red team wins!  Read more »
Last time on Hell‘s Kitchen, Elise was sold out, or so she thought, by her fellow chefs. And Chef Ramsay yelled. A lot.  Read more »
On this week‘s Hell‘s Kitchen, it‘s time to return to high school as the chefs have to prepare dishes for a high school reunion. And you thought high school was bad enough the first time around... I bet Chef Ramsay wasn‘t at your high school watching your every move...  Read more »
Another crazy week has gone past this flat-screen in front of me. (Of all of us, really.) Ashley got tired of the him-or-him? question and settled for a cupcake. The guidos decided to trace their roots and ended up doing more of the same. And we‘re a little (emphasis on little) closer to how Ashton Kutcher will end up with Charlie Sheen‘s shoes on Two and a Half Men. Read more »
Tonight, on Hell‘s Kitchen, the show evolves around beer. Krupa drinks too much of it, the chefs have to cook with it and the guests have to consume it. Along with the beer, there are a lot of distractions for the men this week as several attractive women act as guests on the show.  Read more »
Hah, TV people. Sometimes you‘re good friends, but other times you‘re busy arguing. Or conniving against each other. But unless you‘re a diabolical maniac or a non-human creature (or Santana Lopez), you never end up hurting each other.Not that I condone violence or anything. You know my point, right? Read more »
On tonight‘s episode of Hell‘s Kitchen, Wolfgang Puck judges the chefs‘ cooking, but do their attitudes get in the way?  Read more »
Overcooked sea bass, raw scallops, "get out!", "switch it off!" - you know the drill. It‘s business as usual in Hell‘s Kitchen. How did it go down this time? Tongue playThis week: blind taste test! And Elise won it for the red team. No wonder when some other people mistook crab meat for mushrooms, and filet mignon for turkey. While the red team had to fake being excited to go horse riding, the blue team had to peele grapes. Or as the announcer said: "while the ladies enjoyed the fruit of their labor, the blue team labored over their fruit." Witty. The ladies got their buzz on, Tommy exhibited some questionable humor ("I have grape expectations!" Har har har) - a great time was had by everyone. And Elise and Carrie even got into a fight over who is the bigger alcoholic!  Read more »
Elise is "very grateful" to remain in the competition and is ready to put her "best foot forward" on tonight‘s episode of Hell‘s Kitchen. Also, the red team is very skeptical if Elisabeth can keep it together. But, as the announcer tells us, bot teams are "eager for redemption". Will they be able to do it? Let‘s see...  Read more »
Reality TV has never been our nation‘s most aware institution of past days as the genre is inherently volatile and reliant on current events. But tonight, Hell‘s Kitchen‘s past came to haunt Hell‘s Kitchen‘s present. How did it all go down?  Read more »
This week on Hell‘s Kitchen, it all comes down to the wire. Who of the four remaining chefs, Elise, Will, Paul and Tommy will scoop up the grand prize of the head chef position at BLT Steak in New York City? After the obligatory "surprise" visit by their family meant to give the cartoonish contestants somewhat more recognizable character traits, it was on. What hijinks did Gordon Ramsay concoct this time?  Read more »
Gordon Ramsay is such a master chef that he doesn‘t eat regular old food for his meals anymore. He eats airtime. Now, the (screaming, red) face of Hell‘s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and Masterchef has added a new show to his expanding menu of scary-named programming: Hotel Hell (coming to FOX at some point!) in which he will fix struggling hotels, motels and bed & breakfasts. Not just their menus, either. Every aspect of these failing hotels will be subject to Chef Ramsay‘s expletive-soaked expertise, which spans all areas of all subject matters and has been scientifically proven to solve all problems. He‘s like King Midas: Everything his scream touches turns to gold. Why stop at four shows, Gordon? You need more. You can do yell ANYTHING! But Gordon is probably too busy berating America‘s worst hoteliers right now to come up with more ideas for more TV shows to add to his yelling/food-based empire, so we‘ve taken the liberty to come up with a few ideas for his next projects. God willing, he‘ll have his own niche TV network (name idea: BOO!) within the year.  Read more »
