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