Fox renews Gordon Ramsay's 'Hotel Hell' for second season -- EXCLUSIVE

Fox is booking a second season of Gordon Ramsay’s Hotel Hell. The network is ordering another round of the summer’s highest-rated new broadcast series.

For Ramsay, the show marks his fourth successful Fox show, and all are on the air the same year — that must be some kind of record. The media often calls X Factor judge Simon Cowell TV’s biggest reality star. But you could make an argument that Ramsay deserves that title. The chef is star of three series on the top-rated network (Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and Hotel Hell), and is the lead judge on a fourth (MasterChef). All will return for another season (Hell’s is actually renewed for two more). Plus, MasterChef rose 12 percent in the ratings for its current well-received third edition — the only broadcast show this summer to grow its adult-demo rating. READ FULL STORY

'Grimm' return not helped by Olympics push

Gordon Ramsay beat up a slew of patriotic celebrities Monday night, while the return of Grimm couldn’t quite give NBC a happy ending.

Despite NBC’s promotions for Stars Earn Stripes during the Summer Olympics, and some timely controversy about the non-casting of Jack Osbourne, the new reality show was topped by Hotel Hell, Fox’s latest Ramsay shouter. At 8 p.m., the one-hour Hotel debut delivered 5.1 million viewers and a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 at 8 p.m., edging out the two-hour series premiere of Stars Earn Stripes in the adult demo (5.1 million viewers, 1.7).

Fox touts Hotel Hell as the summer’s highest rated series debut, but that says more about this summer’s weak new shows (like ABC’s Glass House) then it does about the success of Hotel Hell. Still, the Fox show bested not only Stars but also ABC’s Bachelor Pad (4.1 million, 1.2) and Glass House (2.1 million, 0.7). All paled compared to the return of Hell’s Kitchen (6.5 million, 2.7) after an Olympics hiatus, returning to its second-highest rating of the summer. READ FULL STORY
