Bravo Says, ‘Good Boy ’


Boy Meets Boy
, Bravo's second new summer series with a focus on the gay
community, premiered on a promising note Tuesday night.

As for the first, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the latest episode
achieved its best rating yet.

Boy's opening episode clocked a 1.4 household rating, with about 1.5
million viewers tuning in, channel officials disclosed Wednesday afternoon. The
program appeared at 9 p.m., one hour before Queer Eye's latest episode,
which drew a 2.5 household rating. The first two 10 p.m. segments of Queer
received 1.6 and 1.4 ratings, respectively.

Queer Eye's increased audience may have resulted from the opening
episode's replay in half-hour form on NBC last week. The episode did well,
despite several NBC affiliates dropping the show or running it in late-night or
overnight periods.

"We couldn't be more pleased with the results," Bravo president Jeff Gaspin
said in a prepared statement.
