More Gordon Ramsay? Fox says "F***yeah!"

American viewers love anything lewd, crude, and related to food--and Fox knows it. The network has signed a new deal with foul-mouthed British chef Gordon Ramsay, who's known best for his thorough terrorism of hopeful young cooks on his hit series Hell's Kitchen.

"[Ramsay] has become one of the faces of Fox," says Mike Darnell, the network's President of Alternative Entertainment, and he's certainly not wrong. Hell's Kitchen's most recent season was this summer's most popular show among adults 18-49, and Kitchen Nightmares is hot on its heels--but can Ramsay fans stomach even more of the guy?

Under the terms of the new contract, Hell's Kitchen will be back for two more seasons, and Ramsay's newer Kitchen Nightmares will have at least one more run. But that's not enough for Fox: Execs are working with Ramsay to develop a one-night special as well as a mysterious third series.

Kitchen Nightmares is currently airing Thursdays at 9 (on Fox, duh), and Hell's Kitchen will return midseason. We've got no details yet on the new special or series, but let's hear what you think just in case some savvy Fox exec is reading this. Will Ramsay's antics continue behind the counter of a grade-school lunch line? In the mess hall of an American military base in Iraq? In Google's famous employee cafeteria? Let's hear some ideas!

Gordon Ramsey is such an intelligent & belligerent man of many words, particularly crass, and helpful suggestions that if the people who he were helping would be an inkling of grateful, they would understand that as well. I'm looking forward to more of his wit, and the way he's so direct with people, sometimes I wish I had the gall to say what he does, but alas, I do not, although of course I wouldn't do it with so much swearing, but that's what makes him unique.

I love Gordon Ramsay. He doesn't scream on all his shows (I think there are about 3 or 4 of them). That's strictly for "Hell's Kitchen". The other shows he does curse and carry on but he's always helping someone re-establish their business and put the pieces of their lives together.

I like the roughness of gordon ramsay's shows. He doesn't beat around the bush.

Shocker713, I take it that you are a close personal friend of Mr Ramsey then, to make that statement? Anyway, I digress..............I really really wish FOX would stick to the UK format of the show. It's a lot more realistic, down-to-earth and true. But then Channel 4 don't have to answer to a nanny state that is USA TV!!!!!

Ramsey I love you, you are great! You run a kitchen like I would like to seee! I would kiss you all over if I wasn't married! Your straight to the point without beating around the bush. If people could see what health inspectors see, more peeople would eat at home. Between Hells Kitchen and Kitchen nightmares, you can't go wrong.

Love ya!

I like both shows. Chef Ramsey is crazy over the top and very entertaining but I think a third one is a bit overkill.

I love Ramsay but Fox ruins him. They focus more on the idiots he has to deal with rather than his ability to actually help people and there's way too much gravelly-voice narration. Now if this were news pertaining to his BBC series, I'd be all kinds of excited.

Surprised-- I had also read that he was giving up on the U.S. version of "Kitchen Nightmares." Glad he changed his mind.

YES! Keep 'em both on, but let's not get carried away with a 3rd cooking show and specials? Come on..Fox barely has enough time slots as it is...

I just watched Hells Kichen over the summer for the first time and I enjoyed it. This is a smart move Fox.

I really like these shows, but the americanized version of Kitchen Nightmares is a little cheesy. overly dramatic and a little insulting to the intelligence

Hey, I thought he refused to do Kitchen Nightmares (after this season) due to falling ill from eating bad food! Extremely glad someone talked him into doing at least a third season.

I am pretty much obsessed with anything involving Ramsay: Give us more, Fox. Pretty much everything else on Fox sucks, other than NFL.

I love Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares. but feel that Hell's kitchen could use better chefs. Bravo's Top Chef seems to be a more serious cooking competition. The chef's on Hell's Kitchen are terrible and seem to be getting dumber and dumber each season. It could be the producer's are trying to up the comedy of the show but it made this last season a bit anticlimactic

The new series should be like the F Word, but here in the states at one of his restaurants.

I like Hell's Kitchen, but I liked Kitchen Nightmares better when Ramsey was in the UK. As for a 3rd series, I'd just have to wait and see what he does.

According to a family member of mine who worked with Ramsey a couple of times in England, he is actually a very cool, down to earth guy. He does speak his mind but with fewer expletives.

Seen every season of Hell's Kitchen but the 1st. I haven't tried to watch Kitchen Nightmares, but they both most be doing well.

Awesome! I love both of Ramsay's shows. So drastically different, but both with a chef you really want to avoid.

I actually like the fact that he lays into the people on Kitchen Nightmares, because those nasty restaurants could easily be any random place I eat at, and we can all only hope that the kitchen is clean. It's sick that people let their restaurants quality drop that far.

The dumbest part of the whole deal is that he's nothing like he represents himself on TV. I'm sure he knows as much as I do that if he acted like that in a real kitchen, he wouldn't leave with his health.

Great!!!! Just what the world needs.....another reality show....Yipee!!

I liked Ramsay's 'Hell's Kitchen' but I didn't like the British version with the other chef. As long as Ramsay's at the helm, I will continue to watch both 'Hell's Kitchen' and 'Kitchen Nightmares'.

i really liked the British version too... for some reason there never seems to be enough time for the US version shows... but nevertheless i like Kitchen Nightmares better than Hell's Kitchen.

I like Kitchen Nighmares but it's really different in tone to the original British version... The US show focuses more on the conflict between Ramsey and the owners rather than improving the eatery.
