Newswire: Logo renews RuPaul’s Drag Race for an eighth season
Before RuPaul’s Drag Race, all Logo had to feather its original-programming hat was Noah’s Arc and that show with the gay Legos. But since its low-budget beginnings, Drag Race has become a crossover hit for the network, with the season seven premiere garnering a 20 percent increase in ratings from the sixth season. So it’s no surprise that Logo has renewed RuPaul’s Drag Race for an eighth season, not least because without it, it would have to go back to showing Eating Out movies all day. “Logo is like the Jay Z to my Beyonce,” RuPaul says. “I was a star before we met, but together we have raised the bar to new heights, and created a brand that has taken over the world.”
The casting call for season eight also begins today, so strap on that lace front and let them have it, queens.
