Gordon Ramsay's Cookalong was half fun, half terrible

This was not what I was expecting.

I don't think I've ever been as confused by a TV show while I was actually watching it. Maybe because Gordon Ramsay's Cookalong was live or maybe it was because Chef Gordon Ramsay had to move at such a frantic pace to get everything done in an hour.

Whatever the reason, I found myself hating the show at first, then kinda liking it, then hating, then liking it, then finding it a little stupid, and then kinda liking it. On a scale of 1 to 10, which 1 being "I hated it" and 10 being "I loved it," I'll give it a 5.

How's that for a politician-like decision?

But as I said, it wasn't what I was expecting. I thought regular people were going to come on stage and Ramsay was going to teach them how to cook. But it wasn't that. Instead, we got celebrities like Alyson Hannigan, LeeAnn Rimes, and Cedric The Entertainer cooking along with the frantic Ramsay (which I'm now trademarking as the name of a new dance I'll invent).

And while that gave us the only real fun of the night, with Cedric getting off some good quips and Hannigan almost burning her hair off when they poured alcohol into the pan), I was expecting ordinary folks getting help from Ramsay. I was wondering if he would try to teach these ordinary folks how to cook and get frustrated and FOX would have to bleep him, but this was celebs so the whole night was more relaxed. Not that Ramsay would have sworn. This was the kinder, gentler Ramsay, not the guy who barks on Hell's Kitchen.
