Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back

9 p.m. ET on FOX – Series Premiere
If anyone currently on broadcast television is a master of variations on a theme, it has to be “Hell’s Kitchen” and “MasterChef” veteran Ramsay. He has something new cooking with the premiere of this series, in which he travels across America to troubled restaurants that may have to shut down unless he can upgrade them successfully, literally within 24 hours. He utilizes a mobile kitchen — known as Hell on Wheels — which makes its first stop at the Congers, N.Y., restaurant that gives this episode the title “Bella Gianna’s.”
