    FOX (Returning March 3rd, 2015)
    Aspiring young chefs are put to the ultimate challenge in Hell's Kitchen, a reality television competition starring world renowned chef Gordon Ramsay. Each of these chefs dreams of fame and fortune, but many soon find their dreams becoming nightmares. Chef Ramsay demands quality and the intensity of the challenges is beyond anything the contestants can ever imagine. Split into two teams, they must compete against each other to provide their very best in the kitchen. If they do, they are lavishly rewarded with everything from extravagant trips to a ride on Ramsay's personal yacht. Those that fail are forced to suffer humiliating punishment. At the end of each episode, the chef who provided the best performance in Ramsay's opinion on the losing team is chosen to select two chefs from their own team for elimination. They must then give their reasons for their selection. Though one of these two chefs may be eliminated, Ramsay is under no obligation to choose either, and the final decision as to who is sent home is made solely by him. From Waffle House chefs to executive chefs, the competitors are tested in every way possible, from leadership skills to culinary skills. Traditional challenges include a taste-test of everyone's palette and special events such as birthdays and weddings. The chefs, however, must always be on their toes, as they never know when surprises may be coming. Previous season - Hell's Kitchen aired the fifth season at 9 P.M. on Thursdays In this, the fifth season, contestants competed for the position of head chef at a restaurant in the Atlantic City's Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa-- one being built specifically for the winner. This season's crop featured what executive producer Kent Weed promised to be "the best chefs we've ever assembled," with everything from a cooking-school instructor to a food-court chicken fryer. There were many contenders, but many dramatic twists as well. You can catch repeats of various seasons of the program on FOX Reality, which has the rights to repeats of the show. Theme Tune - "Fire" by the Ohio Players The first season of Hell's Kitchen is now available in stores across the United States on DVD. The DVD is billed as "raw and uncensored" and also features bonuses such as cast and crew interviews & a tour of the Hell's Kitchen set.

    FOX (ended 2004)
    In My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé, the producing team of Jean-Michel Michenaud and Chris Cowan pulled off the ultimate practical joke. Randi Coy had to convince her family that she was going to marry "Steve," a big, fat slob who, unbeknownst to her, was a paid actor. She and her family were tested to the breaking point in a show that featured some of the most outrageous moments in television history. But if you think that was outrageous, wait until you meet My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss. My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss is a parody of such shows as NBC's The Apprentice and even FOX's very own The Rebel Billionaire: Branson's Quest for the Best. In the very first episode, twelve business professionals meet Mr. N. Paul Todd and learn about his multi-billionaire conglomeration, IOCOR, in a slick PowerPoint presentation. What they don't realize is that Mr. N. Paul Todd is nothing more than an anagram for Donald Trump and IOCOR comes from the Latin for "to jest." Mr. Todd is an actor named William August who's being paid to play an outrageous parody. Now they've been sucked into "his world" where he'll harass them, humiliate them, and basically make them look like complete fools. At the beginning of the show, the men and the women were divided into separate teams. In their first learning experience in corporate sabotage, they were told to give a name to the opposing team. The men chose to the name the women Femron, while the men were given the name of Concad. Before each elimination, the two teams take part in ridiculous tasks designed specifically to humiliate them. These could be anything from attempting to sell hot soup on a scorching day to attempting to "navigate" an office obstacle course. The losing team is given a punishment, while the winning team receives a reward that often ends up being worse than the punishment. However, these are not always aired. Also, in most episodes, some contestants are chosen to receive an Executive Privilege in which they get to spend some extra time with Mr. N. Paul Todd. These Privileges, in actuality, are designed to bring out Mr. Todd's shady character and further humiliate the victims of the scheme. In each episode, the losing team is sent to Mr. Todd's office. He and his actor flunkies then berate them, confuse them and annoy them before asking the team leader to choose two victims to face elimination. After a final chance to "plead their case" and a short waiting period, Mr. N. Paul Todd ejects the selected victim with a curt "Get the hell out of my office!" In the fourth episode, Mr. Todd got bored with this phrase and decided to start using a contestant's decision: "You're dismissed." By the next episode, though, he had apparently grown bored with that and switched back the original phrase. However, in the show's big twist, Todd isn't the one making the decisions. Instead, completely unknown to the contestants, the decision is made by a mystery boss whose identity is a complete secret. FOX promises, however, that when it is revealed, it will be a shocking, jaw-dropping twist. Given FOX's past record, it's probably rather lame and not at all jaw-dropping. At the end of the series, the remaining victim wins $250,000. The other victims win nothing.moreless
