NBC Queer Eye will be edited.
Prior to the Fab 5’s appearance on The Tonight Show later this evening, NBC will give a full hour at 10 p.m. ET to an episode of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, although it likely won’t like it did on Bravo. Instead, “producers’ cuts are likely to neutralize some affiliates’ objections to bathroom-type humor near the top of the show,” TV Week reports. A Washington, NC, affiliate will air infomercials instead of the show at 10, delaying it until late night, because “[t]he content, I felt, was not suitable at times children might watch,” the GM of WITN says. He said he “like[s] the show” and his problems “are not about the gay theme but about the disputed quips,” according to TV Week.
+ also: “from unknown to overexposed overnight.”
