FOX announces spring schedule

FOX is announcing April launch dates for the return of Bones and the debut of HOTEL HELL.

On Thursday, April 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Bones returns with an expectant Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) at odds over plans for the upcoming birth of their daughter. Meanwhile, a neighborhood is on edge when remains are found in the sewer, clogging up local plumbing lines.

After more than a decade of running restaurants in some of the world’s top hotels, Gordon Ramsay knows firsthand the crucial importance of surpassing guests’ highest expectations. In HOTEL HELL premiering Friday, April 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Ramsay will travel across the country to fix horrid hotels, awful inns and just plain bad bed and breakfasts. To come to grips with the problems, Ramsay will endure hotels at their worst – from filthy bedrooms and mold-ridden bathrooms to dreadful room service and incompetent staff – all so you don’t have to. After he has uncovered the issues, Ramsay will put the hotel owners and employees to work as he attempts to turn around these failing establishments. With reputations on the line, one thing is certain: if they can’t meet Ramsay’s high standards, they will never check out of HOTEL HELL.

The decision to end the show now, or ever, is a painful one, as it risks putting asunder hundreds of close friendships that have developed over the last eight years – but also because the show itself has been a source of great pride to everyone involved.
