Kitchen Nightmares Exclusive Preview: Necessity Is the Mother of an Intervention

15 February 2013 6:01 AM, PST

This week’s installment of Kitchen Nightmares reduces a gruff dad to the brink of tears — without so much as a chopped onion or a shouting Chef. Gordon Ramsay to prompt the Kleenex moment.

Instead, the waterworks at Sam’s Mediterranean Kabob Room are prompted by the titular restaurateur hearing harsh truths from his disgruntled employees — who just so happen to be his seven children. It turns out Sam’s offspring have been toiling away at the failing eatery up to seven days a week, and often without pay. And nope, getting free meals off the restaurant’s super-bland menu »

14 February 2013 6:07 PM, PST

Thirty-nine talented young singers stand on the precipice of superstardom. And so does one kinda crazy chick who has only one drum stick (musical, not chicken) as well as the potential to turn American Idol bandleader Ray Chew’s job into the kind of situation that might pique renewed interest in a revival of Discovery Channel’s recently departed Dirty Jobs.

Yes indeed, tonight’s final installment of Season 12 Hollywood Week put the women through their final paces, narrowed their numbers to a lean 20, and — if the “we need a girl to win this year, Please!” intro is to be »
