Gordon Ramsay has claimed that he doesn't swear "often".

The television chef - who is famous for his use of bad language on shows like Hell's Kitchen and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares - said that he needs a "reason" to swear.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, he said: "I like to think it's an industry language. I've worked with some great chefs and when I've made a mistake there's a naughty word that comes out. But do I want [my children] Matilda and Jack walking around swearing? Definitely not."

As reality TV approaches its 15th year of post-Real World maturity, the genre has a wide range of programs, from the stupid and scripted to the artful and insightful. Amid the clutter--this fall will see many new and returning reality TV shows on cable and broadcast--there are many highlights. Here are six things worth watching.  Survivor and Amazing Race swap players and twists "Survivor" (Sept. 24) is on a streak: there's been season after season of solid, unpredictable game play along with a continued commitment to high-quality storytelling and production. Executive producer and host Jeff Probst, and the network, will try to keep that streak going by returning to last fall's Blood vs. Water format, which worked well, and by ditching the mostly loathed Redemption Island and replacing it with Exile Island.
