A reality television program filmed in November aimed at reviving a struggling Kilgore restaurant will air tonight, but ownership changes likely have made the episode of “Restaurant: Impossible” irrelevant.

The Kilgore eatery, owned by Glenda Reid and Sharon Henley, is called Nanny Goat’s Kilgore. A Longview location, now owned by Kyle Adams, is Nanny Goat’s Cafe and Feed Bin.

So when the episode of “Restaurant: Impossible” airs tonight, punctuated by the emotional meltdowns and fits of temper depicted in the show’s promotions, it may be entertaining — but neither owner expects it to have much impact on business. In fact, some of the changes the Food Network show’s host and celebrity Chef Robert Irvine put in place during production at Nanny Goat’s in Kilgore already have been scrapped — from the menu to the decor.
