Andy Cohen supports Bravo's decision to end the Queer Eye reboot.
The Watch What Happens Live host spoke out about why the cable network rejected the revival of the popular reality show on Jeff Lewis Live on SiriusXM.
He stated that he didn't believe it would have been a big show on Bravo on Monday. "I don’t... I don’t believe people are watching linear TV in the same way they are watching Netflix.
He said, "And I believe it premiered at Netflix and people loved" it. It was going to cost a lot; Queer Eye was an expensive show to produce. Bravo was probably right to not do that show.
He said, "I don’t think it would be a hit."
Bravo first aired the original Queer Eye series, originally titled Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. The reality series, which starred Ted Allen, Kyan Doug, Carson Kressley and Thom Filicia was a success and won an Emmy in 2004 for Outstanding Reality Program. The network ended production in June 2006 and the final episode aired on October 2007.
The Netflix reboot of the show, which was released almost a decade later, featured a new cast: Tan France, Tan France and Karamo Brown. Queer Eye has won multiple Emmy Awards since its renewal, which was shortened to Queer Eye. The sixth and latest seasons will be available in December 2021.
The production revealed via Twitter in March that the show's seventh season was in development and would be filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana.
He noted that "The ratings fell that entire season, and the ratings went up for that reunion." "Do you know which show I regret they cancelled?" It was the Real Housewives of DC, which I strongly supported keeping on.
Cohen said, "If you look closely at that cast. That was an integrated cast. It was racially varied at a time in which our shows weren’t enough." He then criticized one of the featured families for allegedly contributing to the show’s demise via their numerous controversies.
He said, "I felt there was a lot [of it]", "But I think that the Salahi's kinda tanked it."
