Its an outrage! It's a sell-out! Its internalized homophobia! Its...no, I just really don't care.
LOGO goes for "mainstream programming"
"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry

I don't get LOGO but I noticed it on the grid the other night: The programming consisted of alternating showings of Dreamgirls and Chicago. I audibly said "Hm."
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Rick & Steve were funny the first five minutes of the first episode you ever see. Honestly, LOGO could have already changed their programming and I wouldn't have noticed. I gave up on them years ago.

If Reichen and Spray Tan What's-His-Face are reflections of my life, I'm picking up some Windex for my mirror on the way home from work today.

I got a kick out of RuPaul's Drag Race. I found it funny but I never seek it out. If I'm flipping channels and find it I'll watch.

I love Drag Race! It is the only show I can stomach on that network...of course I have to DVR it though. The commercials are beyond awful.

I'm sure they're still going to air DRAG RACE. it's the highest rated show on the channel and extremely popular.

Honestly...I don't wish anyone out of their jobs. I do wish however, that they'd ax the A-List series. I've watched, but I had to ask myself if I would welcome any of those boys into my living room...and I must concede NO! Our lives and our free time are worth so much more than all that cattiness!

There was a coming out series years ago, when the channel first started, that was quite moving. It was a docu style show and I remember one memorable young man who was from Jamaica and wanted to come out to his father. He was so scared because as a child he saw a gay man lynched in Jamaica while he hid in a tree.

Drag Race and Drag U are brilliant, imo. The affectionate dig at Tyra Banks is priceless.

I guess I wont miss much.

It seems all they do is play Buffy, censored episodes of Queer as Folk, and ****ty gay movies.

I always found it odd that they had to censor things like Queer as Folk. What's the point of having a gay themed channel that is so squeamish? Anyway I'm not really sure what Logo's programming was--we got the Canadian gay station for free for a while and it seemed to be similar--largely crap. (and bad soft core porn late at night...) Isn't there a second gay station in the US too or am I making that up> I did watch Rick and Steve a bit just because a friend of mine ws an animator on it and I felt like it was supporting him, but, umm yeah.

It does seem weird though--more and more cable stations seem to come with a basic focus and then after five years they just ditch it and air whatever. I know here in Canada it seems like they all show CSI reruns no matter what their supposed theme focus.
