Queer Eye, Boy Meets Boy finale set records for Bravo, beat network TV.
Last week’s episode of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and the finale of Boy Meets Boy not only set new records for Bravo, but also beat “all but one regular broadcast program in its 10 p.m. slot in the key 18-49 age group demographic,” Reuters reports. 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.’”
