An Open Letter to Gordon Ramsay



Dear Chef Ramsay,

Since the World Series bumped your show off this week's lineup, I'll use it as an opportunity to ask something of you. Nothing big...just a tiny favor. First off, congratulations on getting your show renewed for another season. Before you begin filming, though, there are some things you must consider -- like how awesome your show was when it was produced for the BBC. There wasn't any choppy, overdramatic editing or any nerve-racking background music. It was simple, almost-comforting reality television -- much different than the calculated mess FOX serves up every week. You demand quality control at every restaurant you enter, so why not demand it from FOX?

Looking forward to your return next week!

Sincerely, Jeanette Kozlowski
