Fox announced today that Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours to Hell and Back has been picked up for a second season. The early renewal comes after a strong start to the new series, which is the renowned British chef's lastest entry in the reality realm.

Through its first two weeks on the air, 24 Hours to Hell and Back has performed admirably in the Wednesday 9:00pm time slot following Masterchef. In the show's premiere week, its 1.1 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic actually topped that of its Ramsay-related lead-in. Week 2 was off slightly but still matched Masterchef's 1.0 and bested its admittedly-weak time slot competition, which consisted mostly of reruns.

In 24 Hours to Hell and Back, Gordon Ramsay travels to struggling restaurants across America in a state-of-the-art mobile kitchen and command center. With each establishment on the brink of shuttering, Ramsay is given 24 hours to address its many issues and revive it. During this limited window of time, Ramsay and his team work to transform the restaurant with renovations, a new menu, and a better outlook for the future.
