" 'I’m breaking my own news today! I’ve decided it’s time to bring 'Kitchen Nightmares' to a close. Been 10 great years,' Gordon Ramsay tweeted before dawn today, reducing the number of Gordon Ramsay Culinary Repertory Theater offerings by one."
The story adds: "Imagine Fox‘s surprise. The network’s reality TV team had discussed the move with the celebrity chef, so he didn’t set their pants on fire — but his timing, and his method for the announcement caught them off guard. Contacted for comment, Fox hasn’t responded yet.
"Sometime this morning, Ramsay also posted on his website about the Fox utility player, that just finished its seventh season: 'As filming comes to a close on the latest series of Kitchen Nightmares I’ve decided to stop making the show. … I’ve had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across 2 continents, watched by tens of millions of people and sold to over 150 countries. It’s been a blast but it’s time to call it a day.”
