''Queer Eye'' sets Bravo rating records

Posted on

The five gay guys who star on ”Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” aren’t content just to make over ill-groomed heterosexuals — they’re also doing the same for their network, Bravo. The show’s premiere Tuesday night was the highest-rated show in the history of the cable network, attracting 1.16 million viewers, according to a network press release. That’s eight times more viewers than usually tune in to the network between 10 and 11 p.m. The show stars ”the Fab Five” — a quintet of gay men who are experts in food, grooming, interior design, fashion and culture. Like a superhero team, they use their abilities for the good of mankind, helping to rescue hairy, uncultured straight men — and their ugly homes.
