FOX TV: In the fifth season of KITCHEN NIGHTMARES, Gordon Ramsay treks to Brooklyn, Boston, Pittsburgh and the suburbs of Los Angeles and Cleveland, to help struggling restaurants stay afloat. Each week, Chef Ramsay will visit a new establishment with myriad problems. He will delve deep into the inner workings of each eatery and explore everything from unsanitary refrigerators to lazy and inexperienced staff in order to diagnose the real problems. Whether he changes the restaurant’s operations, updates the menu or gives the establishment a complete makeover, Chef Ramsay will do whatever it takes to try and turn these restaurants into popular, successful and, most importantly, money-making businesses. It’s up to the restaurant owners to take his advice and use it – or face closure.
In the first episodes of this season, Chef Ramsay heads to Boston and Brooklyn.
Nightmares airing Friday, Oct. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Find out if Ramsay can take on these stubborn sisters in the all-new “La Galleria 33, Part One” episode of Kitchen
Nightmares airing Friday, Nov. 2 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
In the second part of a two-part episode, Chef Ramsay is back in the North End of Boston, hoping to snap sisters Rita and Lisa out of their state of denial. When Ramsay forces them to confront their staff about their shortcomings and take back control of their restaurant, a full-blown feud erupts, causing one server to up and leave. Luckily for these sisters, Chef Ramsay has a surprise up his sleeve, but will the owners and Head Chef Doug welcome the change or continue to be set in their ways? With a total revamp of the menu, decor and attitudes, find out if Ramsay can help Rita and Lisa have the success that their parents have achieved in their own restaurant just a few doors down, on the all-new “La Galleria 33, Part Two” episode of Kitchen
Nightmares airing Friday, Nov. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
In the third, all-new episode of Kitchen Nightmares, Chef Ramsay heads to Mama Maria’s in Brooklyn. This Italian restaurant and pizzeria was passed down from mother to son more than 25 years ago, but has proven to be more of a burden than a family gem. The owner is exhausted from trying to make ends meet for his family, which in turn has taken a toll on the staff, food and overall performance of the restaurant. Chef Ramsay is disgusted to find 12 freezers filled with rancid and inedible pre-made meals and he reaches his breaking point when one diner needs an ambulance after eating a defrosted piece of seafood. When Chef Ramsay levels with this owner, he leaves him in tears. Find out if Ramsay’s push was enough to wake this owner and save his family and restaurant on the all-new “Mama Maria’s” episode of Kitchen Nightmares!
