Gordon Ramsay to the rescue.

The network getting Kitchen Nightmares back on the air on Oct. 26, serving as a lead-in for 9 p.m.’s Fringe. With Fox struggling in the ratings on Fridays  — X-Factor repeats currently fill the 8 p.m. slot — the move should help boost the night since Ramsay’s makeover show typically generates a relatively solid-ish number.

As part of this shakeup, the second season of Kiefer Sutherland’s Touch is getting pushed to January. Fox won’t yet say where on the schedule it will air. Meanwhile, Monday night’s The Mob Doctor continues to stay alive … for now.
