War of 18-49 Update, Kitchen Nightmares (2012-13)

Let's take a look at the 2012-13 season (the sixth overall) of Kitchen Nightmares on Fox.

Rating the Ratings: Once the show that made Fox somewhat relevant on Friday night, Kitchen Nightmares had a pretty brutal sixth season. It wasn't as bad as it looked like it could be when it premiered at a dreadful 0.9, down nearly half year-to-year. In fact, every single episode after the premiere actually did better than 0.9. But it still would up at a level well below almost everything that had come before, and Fox again became a Friday afterthought. Because Fox may well run light on Friday options again next season, Kitchen Nightmares eked out another renewal. But with Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef thriving again this summer, it now feels increasingly likely this will be the first of Gordon Ramsay's cooking shows to come to an end. Grade: D.

Here's the now updated War of 18-49 post for Kitchen Nightmares.

I agree that of those three Ramsey shows, Kitchen Nightmares is probably the first to go. Perhaps it'll be replaced by season 2 of Hotel Hell, which I don't think has been scheduled yet.
