    I added LOGO to my cable mix about 6 months ago. For a month or so I enjoyed the variety of programs which might range from travel features to foreign gay films.

    I still love The BIG GAY Sketch Show and Sarah Silverman. But otherwise LOGO has become a Ru Paul's DragRace Marathon. Or on the weekend, Buffy, Vampire Slayer. NONSTOP. I like Ru Paul but I need some variety.

    Any insights on what happened? Is Ru Paul and Buffy that popular or is LOGO delivering low budget programming?

    This week was the season finale of Rue Paul's Drag Race so they were having the marathon's in much the same way that Bravo runs a weekend long marathon of Top Chef before the finale or Project Runway.

    Their programming is simply terrible! We are a bunch of smart guys and girls for that matter....and what we get on LOGO is the best we can do??

    How do they even stay in business? There is better gay programming in the sub text of supposed non gay television almost everywhere else.

    Do have to give Ru some big props for what will be remembered as bringing drag into mainstream and making a huge fortune for her/himself along the way!

    Other than that, it really is terrible. Who wants Queer as Folk censored?

    LOGO seriously needs a makeover.They need to update their commercials, edit their too long commercials, and basically stop becoming like a gay version of MTV(who happens to be theirbig brother network support).
    Maybe LOGO needs to be independent of MTV, so they don't have to censor and bleep stuff on their programs.
    I'm just sayin....

    I agree.

    And with the drug problems in the gay community, why in the hell would you name a show "bump"?

    It is just a "stereotypical" queer channel.

    Funny, I mentioned this to my partner last night (Tue), while we were watching old episodes of Reno911 on LOGO. I was annoyed that about every 4 minutes they ran a commercial, which was either for RuPaul's Drag Race, or else about dead dogs being abused by red necks.

    Well, I hate dogs and other animals being mistreated by red necks, and I hate good clothes being abused by bad drag queens. I already know how I stand on these issues, so that constantly assaulting me with this message is not appreciated.

    Seriously, I actually had to leave the room when they showed the images of abused animals, more than I could stomach, nor could I stomach the images of the dreadful drag queens. I do agree that LOGO needs to expand its programming a bit.

    All I know is that my mother, a pretty conservative Mormon woman.... Loves RuPaul's Drag Race.....

    She even told me that she likes RuPaul more as a in drag/ Woman... that she seemed more confident etc. I said, well yes mom, she's comfortable like that, thats part of who she is! lol, that was a happy moment for me.

    Yeah, it's too bad. For a while they were showing some good movies and a variety of programming. Now its basically RuPaul-All-The-Time.

    The probable reason is that RuPaul is an original program. . . with Logo paying the freight. . . and they have to make sure they get their investment back. More runs = more commercials = more revenue = payback for their original investment.

    Queer as Folk censored? How much of the episodes can you see? Like ten minutes of them.

    RuPaul's Drag Race has been renewed. It has been an overwhelming hit with straight women. I personally know of quite a few that watch it.

    And the animal cruelty commercials are too much. They really need to cut them.

    I will take these shows any day over that British lesbian show that they showed 24/7.




    [b]Logo Renews ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and “Untucked”
    Posted on 28 April 2010 by Bill Gorman

    via press release:

    Logo’s Season Finale of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Burns Ratings Rubber, Clocking In as Network’s Highest-Rated and Most-Watched Telecast Ever

    “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Becomes Logo’s Most Streamed Series Ever On LogoTV.com With Over 9.8 Million Streams This Season Logo Announces 3rd Season Pick Up of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and 2nd Season of “Untucked”

    NEW YORK, April 28 /PRNewswire/ — Monday night’s 9PM season two finale of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” took home the crown as Logo’s highest-rated telecast, averaging a .8 in the P18-49 demo. This was also Logo’s most watched telecast ever, drawing in 633,000 total viewers who witnessed Tyra Sanchez as she was named “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”

    Maintaining the ratings momentum, the season finale of “Untucked” at 10PM also reached a series high averaging .7 in the P18-49 demo. The reunion episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” at 10:30PM retained 100 percent of its “Untucked” lead-in, posting a .7 rating in the P18-49 demo.

    “RuPaul’s Drag Race” was consistently the most watched series this year on Logo, which is available in 46 million households. Additionally, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” has become the most streamed series ever on LogoTV.com with more than 9.8 million video streams season-to-date — a 184% increase over season 1 streams (source: Omniture). To relive the glitz and the glam of the season, viewers can catch the series’ full episodes and extra content at LogoTV.com.

    “‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ has consistently shown that even underdogs can be champions,” said Dave Mace, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Logo. “And today, this ‘little-show-that-could’ has become a national and GLAAD Media Award-winning phenomenon.”

    Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell, Executive Producers from WOW Productions collectively commented, “In our 500 years in show business, it’s hard to remember a series that has stirred such a deep and passionate following. The fact that ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ celebrates what others have chosen to denigrate makes its crossover success that much more fabulous.”

    Fresh off the heels of the second season success, Logo announced the season three pickup of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” as well as the second season pickup of “Untucked.” “RuPaul’s Drag Race” order has been upped from 12 to 16 episodes and “Untucked” from 10 to 13 episodes. The new seasons are slated to premiere on the network in winter of 2011. Casting is currently underway. For more info, please visit Rupaulsdragracecasting.com.

    I LOVE the Big Gay Sketch Show. I am also especially fond of the Click List - Best in Short Film and Bump!. LOGO use to be really good with programming, but you are right... all I see any more is Buffy and Ru Paul. I use to be a consistent viewer, but I barely watch it anymore. icon_sad.gif

    I always have to take a few months off from Logo. After a few weeks you have seen it all for a while and it is mostly just 'repetitive repeats'. It's easy to tell that it is an MTV network channel.

    Isn't LOGO run by lesbians? I think the head of programing is a lesbian.

    I made the same complaint to some fellow gay mates last week. It's because they're lacking in gay themed programming.

    Big Gay Sketch Show has it's moments. McGovern and Guarino are consistently hysterical and Paolo Andino is insanely hot.

    And Craigslist ads as read by Maya Angelou. Fucking brilliant.

    the network has no money. new ideas get pitched everyday they never greenlight anything because they have no money. As for rupaul, he is making nothing on his show and its the only thing holding them up right now. trust me he is making peanuts.
