Boy Meets Boy‘s 1.62 million viewers “was the cable network’s highest-rated show ever except for” episodes of Queer Eye, which “drew 3.35 million total viewers, only the second time Bravo has broken the 3 million mark,” and was also “rated higher than any other show on advertising-supported cable and every broadcast show except an NBC repeat of ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.'”
