    I think it may have played already in some markets....got a call from my sister-in-law about an "outrageous" Ramsey show this weekend.  Maybe she just saw part 1

    Yes, we watched it last week.  She's really something.

    I just saw an add for the new season and it said there was going to be a follow-up to the one we've already seen.

    Ramsey, Amy, her Husband are all Psycho's. Not worth anyone's time to succumb to that nonsense.

    Oh, c'mon. 
     
    You don't enjoy watching train-wrecks?
    As the new episode is already in the can, the Heisenberg Principle does not apply!
     
    Or, are you just a bit alarmed by the fact that Amy and Sammy live so close to you and are reacting to this horror by adopting the 'ostrich strategy'?
     
    Man up and stroll over there, camera in hand, and do a 'report'.
     
      
    'Enquiring' Roadfooders need to know!

    Yes!
     
    The real charm of the first serving of this tasty dish was seeing Ramsey exasperated by being "out A-Holed".
     
    In the words of Oliver Twist, "More, please"!

    And if you actually met Gordon Ramsay, which a very close member of my family has (during one of his other shows, not at a public appearance - meaning this family member was on the show for an episode and spent more than fleeting moments speaking with him), you would realize that he gets paid plenty to be a "psycho", as you call him. He's very, very nice and personable. But people only go by what they see on TV, and assume they're that way "in real life". And I say no more on here about it, because you won't believe me anyway.

    I believe last Friday's episode was a rerun (and scheduled when Fox made a last-minute decision to burn off the final 2 hours of "Rake" on Saturday) of the first ABC show and the upcoming episode is new.

    I have no doubt that Ramsey is a 'nice guy' in 'real life'.  The persona he puts forth is much like that of a pro wrestler - for entertainment purposes only. 
     
    On the other hand I have no doubt that some of the 'butter wouldn't melt in my mouth-types' are probably diva-like horror shows in real life (Giada excepted, of course).

    Rake is cancelled!? 
     
    Oh no!" />
     
    It was somewhat dark and very funny - my kind of light entertainment.

    Apparently the original Australian version is even better (which wouldn't surprise me at all).  But yes, it looks like it's dead...at least on Fox, anyway.  The general plot and characters could easily be adapted to and probably amped up for a cable network, so perhaps it'll get another chance somewhere.

    Actually, I saw a commercial and they are. Well Amy and hubby anyway. I have stopped watching all of his shows. Total fake, everyone of them.

    Well, the person who's very close to me who was in that one episode of one of his shows could probably show you pictures to prove that an event she was in the show for was certainly not fake. However, there's lots of scripting going on, and some other things you sign away your life in advance of and cannot sue them for because of this, and I say no more!! Except excuse my incessant run-on sentences :)

    Thank you.  It's all very clear to me now.

    I also know that at least some are not fake.
     
    One of his shows was filmed down the street from my store at La Frite.
     
    Yes, the menu was changed.
     
    My opinion...  not for the better.  I liked the options that they nixed.
