Fox's Gordon Ramsay: Cookalong Train Wreck

We had been looking forward to Ramsay: Cookalong Live on Fox, but it was a train wreck with many casualties.
We had hoped Gordon Ramsay would have a show about food, we would cook along, maybe learn a thing or two, and it would be a fun night.
Boy, were we wrong!
He brings in "special guests." (always a bad omen) That's right, celebrities no one cares about,  like LeAnn Rimes, Cedric the Entertainer, and Alyson Hannigan.
It was clear from the start, (watch the video) the cookalong was going to be a talk/variety show,
(an embarrassing one at that) and the food was treated like a prop.
With only 4 million viewers the proof was in the pudding, no one was really interested.
Sorry, but Gordon Ramsay's cookalong was a disaster.
Too bad, it was an opportunity, turned into a train wreck.
