I've been pretty addicted to Kitchen Nightmares and The F-Word on BBC America. Agreed about the American Kitchen Nightmares... I like it, but you don't get that same feeling of that process of changing the place around. And Hell's Kitchen is way too Americanized-reality-show. btw, my friend sent me this link the other day:http://www.seriouseats.com/2009/01/r...tmares-tv.html
Know Any Failing Restaurants For Gordon Ramsay's 'Kitchen Nightmares' Show?

20090107-kitchennightmares.jpgFox's Kitchen Nightmares is looking for bad-shape restaurants that need Gordon Ramsay's magic hands. Aren't all restaurants in less-than-good-shape right now with diners so freaked about the economy? Maybe this season Fox will receive a record number of submissions.
The casting directors sound pretty anxious. From an e-mail: "PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY."
Struggling restaurateurs should send the following info to Twinsworld1@aol.com
: name, contact info (including phone number), restaurant name, location (city/state), type of cuisine, your specialty, how many seats you have, how long you have been open, photos or website if available, and why you need Ramsay's help. "The MORE INFO THE BETTER."
