I really make it a habit to avoid reality shows, but I just started watching this and it's awesome. It's about this world-renowned chef, Gordon Ramsey, who goes around to restaurants in a state of disarray and health hazards, and turns them around. What really makes it special is how angry he gets at the conditions of these places, and the abuse he gives to the bosses and the employees, pretty much all of it deserved. I haven't been so gripped to the tube since "To Catch a Predator." I don't think "Kitchen Nightmares" is currently on, but you can catch the earlier episodes on Fox's website.
