Gordon Ramsey is going to be a permanent fixture on Fox's programming schedule for the foreseeable future.
Fox has announced Hell's Kitchen eighth-season episodes will air this fall in the Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT timeslot while Kitchen Nightmares third-season episodes will begin airing midseason in the Fridays at 9PM ET/PT timeslot.
Ramsay will also be a constant presence on Fox this summer, as Hell's Kitchen's seventh season will premiere Tuesday, June 1 at 8PM ET/PT.
Following the show's one-hour debut, Hell's Kitchen will air two-hour episodes in the Tuesdays at 8PM ET/PT timeslot until July 27 -- when it will then begin serving as the lead-in for Ramsay's new Masterchef reality series.
In addition to Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares, Fox also announced American Idol performance episodes and result shows will remain on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when the reality series returns for its tenth season in January.
However unlike recent seasons, Fox plans to air half-hour results shows in the 8:30Pm ET/PT timeslot.
