Queer Eye tapes its 100th episode; will the series end in 2007?

Queer Eye, the groundbreaking makeover show on Bravo, began airing just three years ago. And production just wrapped on the show’s 100th episode, which will air as part of the fifth season. (Of course, people stopped watching about 75 episodes ago, but it’s still a noteworthy milestone.)

In an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, co-creator David Collins said recently, “We’re just completing the 100th episode of ‘Queer Eye’ in New York for season five in 2007.” The fourth season, set entirely in Las Vegas, recently began airing.

The Wikipedia entry for the show says that the 100th episode is not only a milestone, but the “proposed final episode” for the whole series, adding that “Bravo has yet to make any official announcement.” No sources are mentioned for this rumor.

And the Wikipedia entry completely loses its credibility in the next paragraph, where it says that the Fab Five are “five openly gay men each of whom possesses a particular talent.” We all know that Jai has no talent whatsoever, or at least none that he can demonstrate on television.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
