Bravo burns through final episodes of Queer Eye

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy aired its final two episodes last night on Bravo, having started its final 10-episode season less than a month earlier.

After having pushed back the final season from summer to fall, Bravo aired two episodes of the show every Tuesday night, essentially burning off the final season. And even though Bravo is fond of repeating shows throughout the week, there are currently no re-runs scheduled of the final two episodes, “Adam G.” and “Willy M,” or of any other episode. The show that helped pave the way for Project Runway and Bravo’s other hits has all but evaporated.

Critic Aaron Barnhart notes that although the show “refined Bravo, and helped NBC see that programming one might initially deem ‘alternative’ could be aimed right at the mainstream,” the network didn’t bother to hype its conclusion. “There’s not even much promotion on the BravoTV.com website, which seems more interested in hyping the return of the ‘Real Housewives of Orange County.'”

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.
