Shouty chef Gordon Ramsay has four shows on Fox — Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, MasterChef, and the newish (and renewed) seriesHotel Hell — but the network has decided that it has reached a maximum Gordon Ramsay saturation point and will not be doing an American version of the UK series Gordon Behind Bars. Kevin Reilly, the entertainment president of Fox, told the New York Post that "he decided to pass on the prison show and will pick up extra episodes of Ramsay's Hotel Hell instead." Reilly added, "We have a lot of Gordon on the air right now."

While Ramsay is contractually free to do another show with a different network, he has tons of other shows in the pipeline. He's set to produce a Tyler Florence-hosted show set in a food court in Alabama. Outside of the four series for Fox in the US, Ramsay recently signed a one-year deal with Channel Four in the UK to do three new shows including something called Hotel Brittania. Surely BBC America will pick those up. So basically, plenty of more opportunities to get naked.
