Bravo says that "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," the reality program that helped transform the network from an arts channel to a pop-culture player, will be canceled at the end of this season. "Queer Eye" regular Thom Filicia will be the host of a new show on the Style network called "Dress My Nest."
Bravo has ordered 13 episodes of "Queer Eye for the Straight Girl," a makeover show similar to the popular "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," and also has made commitments to several other shows that share a common behind-the-scenes theme. The cabler says the new pickups represent "the next step" in the evolution of the network's arts and entertainment slate.
Despite the buzz surrounding Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," FX's "Nip/Tuck" actually was cable's highest rated show this summer, according to Magna Global USA analysis of Nielsen data. "Queer Eye" would have been the top-rated show if the network didn't air so many repeats, the Magna data showed.
