Ratings come to a boil in ‘Kitchen’

'Hell' finale is hot

The road through “Hell’s Kitchen” was paved with good ratings for Fox.

Monday’s two-hour finale of the culinary boot-camp skein featuring renowned but terrifying chef Gordon Ramsay easily led its time period in key demo categories. Net has yet to commit to a second season of the series, but one is expected.

According to Nielsen, “Hell’s Kitchen” propelled Fox to its best Monday during the summer season among adults 18-49 (3.7 rating/11 share) in six years.

The final hour of “Kitchen” on Monday (4.4/12 in 18-49, 8.94 million viewers) won over its mostly repeat broadcast competish by 5 shares in adults 18-49 and 8 shares in adults 18-34, showing an ideal gender split.

From 8 to 10, it averaged 7.81 million viewers overall.

Although “Kitchen” didn’t bow with big numbers like a few other unscripted newbies this summer, it built steadily throughout its nine airings and consistently performed for Fox in Monday’s 9 o’clock hour.

It likely will rank among primetime’s three or four highest-rated reality shows of the summer in 18-49.
