    Listen, we don't know what to say.  "Kitchen Nightmares" is a favorite of many, but it's a favorite which ends tonight.  Gordon Ramsay announced that he was no longer able to/interested in continuing the long-running show and, consequently, this is it.  We don't quite know how it was that they ended up with a single episode in the can (the last new episode aired in mid-May) for the final run, but that's what we've got -- one more episode, and it's tonight.

    What would you say if we told you that "Kitchen Nightmares," despite its strict adherence to formula, was one of our favorite shows on television?  Would you think us weak?  Would you think us foolish  Well, before you get so judge-y (we might have to start calling you Gordon Jr.), why don't you tune in tonight and do so with an open mind.  The series may stick by its formula on a weekly basis, but that's because it works.  As it turns out, it's fun to watch people in denial about their place of business and for Gordon to set them straight.

    Tonight, for the season premiere, Ramsay is returning to Amy's Baking Company.  That particular episode last season caused a bit of a sensation as the people running the place appeared far more bonkers than the usual sort with which Ramsay deals. Tonight, we'll get some new footage of that visit, an interview with the owners, and an explanation from Ramsay.  It should prove terribly interesting.

    There is a school of thought of which states that every episode of "Kitchen Nightmares" is essentially the same -- the owners all think the food is great; the staff hates the management; and eventually Ramsay is able to get it through everyone's head that he, Ramsay, can fix every issue.  That school of thought is 100% accurate (variation comes in with whether or not the kitchen is clean), but misses the point that the formula is brilliant and makes for great television.  Tune in tonight for the season finale and see if we're not right about it all.

    Wow, FOX has gone something like six weeks without having a Gordon Ramsay show on the air, clearly they've been going through withdrawal.  Don't believe us?  Well, how then do you explain the fact that "Touch" was supposed to return to FOX tonight and then the network opted to switch it around to "Kitchen Nightmares."  The reason is obvious -- they needed their Ramsay fix.  You just can't go more than six weeks without hearing the master call someone a 'fat cow' and explaining that they have to get their head out of their bleep.  No one bleeps like Ramsay.

    Say what you will about us, but "Kitchen Nightmares" is one of our favorite shows on television.  We completely understand that they are exceptionally formulaic, offering a mere two or three minor variations on the same theme, but we love it nonetheless.  Truthfully, it makes us feel like all is right with the world when, at the end of every hour (except for that damn double episode) the restaurant is fixed, the food is delicious, and Ramsay explains to us how that was his toughest job ever.  Plus, we really love it when we find out that we've eaten at some of the 'before' restaurants but never the 'after' ones.

    Gordon Ramsay's long, dark, third season nightmare is coming to a close tonight.  While we admire the the famed chef for his work sprucing up other restaurants, we can't help but worry just a tad for his sanity.  Can you imagine walking into dump after dump after dump on a weekly basis only to be confronted with clueless owners and out of their depth chefs?  It has to affect you in some way, it just has to.  We would probably wake up in a cold sweat every single night imagining we were sticking our hands into a vat of rancid chicken juice, and that's the sort of thing that can change you for life.

    On this week's "Kitchen Nightmares," Gordon Ramsay is revisiting restaurants that he's helped out in the past.  We sincerely hope that the look we get is an honest one, because it is truly interesting to see whether or not Ramsay's changes have stuck and whether or not said changes have led to success.  The other thing we want to see is if restaurants have kept their kitchens clean or if they've gone back to having moldy, filthy, putrid food.  We love the episodes with moldy, filthy, putrid food.

    We know that some of the places that Gordon Ramsay has to visit on this show are absolutely disgusting, but we don't care, we love watching him go into them and start yelling at the owners.  We love it even more that the owners are positively shocked every week that Ramsay would find something wrong with their establishments.  What do the owners think, that they're doing everything right and that people aren't coming for no reason whatsoever?  Do they think that Ramsay is going to pat them on the back and tell all his friends to visit the place?  Silly owners, it's all your fault that your place is failing.

    Listen, let's just be brutally honest about this okay?  Your kitchen is a disaster.  It's filthy, the food is horrible, you're not cooking anything fresh, your chef doesn't know what he's doing, the problems are legion.  We can't help you with any of that.  But, do you know who can?  Gordon Ramsay - superhero to restaurateurs everywhere!  Watch as the man from across the Atlantic swoops in, saves the day, and does it all with a maximum of cursing.  This is the season finale, so it's your last chance to see him in action for a while.

    It might actually be these revisit episodes of "Kitchen Nightmares" that are our favorite.  Tonight, Ramsay will be going back to two restaurants he helped out during season one to see if they've stuck with his changes and if the places are now successful.  We are pretty convinced that we'll see that if they've used Ramsay's suggestions they're making money and if they haven't they're in dire straits, but that doesn't mean the revisit won't be fun anyway.  We're told that for this revisiting episode Ramsay will also show us some of his favorite kitchen fights from the series.  We've got our fingers crossed hoping that they forget to put in the beeps.

    Remember how we suggested you watch "Past Life?"  We even put it as a 'Must Watch' event not once, but twice.  You didn't watch and now, starting tonight, for the next few weeks we'll be getting special episodes of "Kitchen Nightmares" instead.  We certainly hope that these special episodes feature disgustingly dirty kitchens, because as we think we've said before, seeing those types of kitchens is really why we watch the show.  It's incredible what some people think of as been acceptably clean.  In case you're wondering, no kitchen should feature roaches and/or mold (though both of those are terribly fun to see on TV).
