I've been watching some RI episodes recently and they have the (annoying) habit of sending you to the website to see how the restaurants are doing. So, it made me wonder how the two shows compared and which was more successful. We all know that there is a certain amount (a LOT) of drama with these shows and KN seems to be a lot worse than RI. It was interesting to see that they have aired a similar amount of shows and the closure rate for KN is almost double that of RI, despite a longer visit and much higher budget! Kitchen Nightmares Restaurant:Impossible What's even more interesting is the fact that, out of 22 UK restaurants, only three are still open with their original owners! I like Ramsay and we're planning on trying to eat at one of his London restaurants when we go there in September, but this makes interesting reading.
