R.I.P. 'Queer Eye'? Not so much

173723__queer_l[EDITOR’S NOTE: Now just wait a gay minute. Bravo has come out saying that Queer Eye will, in fact, return in 2007. Manicurists everywhere issue of collective sigh of relief.]

It’s back to pleats and bar soap for the straight guy: Indicators point to the imminent cancellation of Queer Eye.

Jai Rodriguez says all the guys are doing well, show or no show. Sez Thom Felicia’s redoing J. Lo’s house. Sez they’re big in the Phillipines. Sez they were probably overexposed. All well and good, but… where does that leave me? Am I going to have to crawl back to the khaki counter after three years of Carson-derived independence? Who will remind me to moisturize? Who, I ask!?!

I’m on my own now, with nothing but a bazillion Queer Eye-spawned male-makeover resources at my disposal. I know: Baby bird’s got to fly one of these days, and better now than EW.com Prom Night. Still, I’ll miss knowing the Fab Five are there, in my TiVo, thinking up new ways to insult my farmer tan and brazenly unmanicured fingernails. It was good, guys. We had some gay old times.

On the other hand, I have a mustard-stained Big Johnson T-shirt and eight unopened Slim Jims in my "shame drawer," and lemme tell you, fellas, they are comin’ out!

    I have to agree that they were overexposed. But all good things must end. I do enjoy watching the show for a good laugh. Some of the people the Fab 5 help are hopeless.

    Oh Popwatch, you squeal again so soon! Should have done more research, because (thanks to TV Tattle) lookie here: http://www.boston.com/ae/tv/blog/2006/08/queer_eye_has_n.html
    It seems the axe hasn’t fallen quite yet on the Fab Five, and that it still may live.

    Thanks GOD!
    That was one of the most useless, annoyingly irritating shows on TV!
    I am shockd it lasted this long.

  • Thad

    Loved the show. Not consistant on programming but that’s not their fault. Overexposure is also bad. Can you say (the Osbournes)?

  • Joel

    This was still on the air?

  • Ed

    Scott, did you say you have a “mustard stained Big Johnson”?! You have me intrigued and excited at the same time ; )

  • Jakeem

    Ha! And Entertainmet Weekly put these guys on the cover three years ago instead of doing a tribue to Bob Hope when he died?

    I love the whole Queer Eye gang. They really work with and care about the guys they make over. I’m glad they’re back for another season.

    I actually think it should get cancelled. It was a one season wonder, but in reality, it hasn’t been much fun since that kick bootay first season… the ingenuity of it is completely gone, and the group has been incredibly over-exposed. Time to take it off the air for 20 years and then return with a Next gayneration.

    I love the show, but they have now one to blame but themselves for dwindling interst. The show “jumped the shark” soon as they abandoned what made it cool to begin with. Namely, assisting clueless straight slobs. But since Season 1 ended, it’s been about weddings, the sick, Las Vegas, Iraq War vets etc. etc. The producers blew it big time. Like the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke -don’t fix it.”

    The show is terrible and Carson Kressley is the tackiest dressing homosexual ever. Who told this guy he should start dressing people?

    Bravo’s broadcast schedule is funky and isn’t the same as the major networks. The episodes of Queer Eye that will be shown through 2007 have already been filmed and are “in the can.” All five principals have publicly stated that they have not been asked back for a new “season” and have moved on to new projects.
